With each season comes a fresh batch of ‘must-try’ trends to get your head around, and for even the most seasoned fashion mavens, it can be overwhelming. Should you be wearing stripes, florals, polka dots – or all three? Will feathers be a flash in the pan? Midi, maxi or *yikes* mini? Happily, in amongst the one season wonders that rarely work off the catwalk or red carpet, you’re guaranteed to find a few perennial trends enjoying a moment in the spotlight again.

There’s also been a rise in red dresses as the frock of choice for the street style set at fashion week, further cementing it as the one dress your wardrobe shouldn’t be without.

Jennifer Hudson also brought the heat to the 2019 Academy Awards in a fierce ruffle red dress.
