1. The knot dress

It’s the knock-it-out-the-park-without-even-trying dress. You know, for those days you have a big presentation at work or an interview you need to bring your A-game to. Accessorised with an understated black handbag and heels that are wardrobe classics in their own right, think of it as a superhero cape in dress form.
