Dresses, skirts and blouses that tie and wrap give the wearer lots of options for refining the fit to suit their curves. Take the cotton poplin wrap dress, £175. When tied and neat, it emphasises a small waist and the slightly retro look is so Grace Kelly in High Society. Of course, with the Winser touch – some added stretch in the cotton poplin – it is easy to wear throughout the day. The dress can be tied in the front with a bow or neatly at the back. A bit stricter is the Shirt Dress at £150. The pockets give it a marshal air and the separate belt/tie can be used or not. Both the dresses are in a new colour – chilli, a fabulous red – as well as a moonlight blue. The Wrap Jersey Dress is a classic, £125. It is hard to find a reason not to own a dress like this.
