A versatile black dress is regarded as a wardrobe classic and Joseph's Fay style is a contemporary and feminine pick for this season and beyond. Crafted from silk-crepe to loosely drape the frame it's shaped with a high neck and blouson sleeves and is cleverly ruched at the front to provide subtle definition. The midi-length asymmetric hem turns to reveal a single vent for ease of movement. Switch between backless flats and stilettos to suit the occasion.
Joseph softens its signature tailored look for AW17 in the form of this sage-green Harold shirtdess. It's crafted from lightweight silk-blend twill with decorative embroidered buttons and an extended collar placket that mirrors the waist tie. Ever so subtly reminiscent of a military shirt it floats gently over the body to a curved hem and needs only minimalist black accessories for a pulled-together presence.
The 1970s mood of Joseph's Pre-AW17 collection was sparked by a box of old family photos found by designer Louise Trotter. This mustard-yellow silk crepe de Chine Josie midi dress is printed with a ditzy white floral pattern plucked from the Liberty archive and detailed with softly gathered panels to offset the fluid silhouette. Team it with block-heeled boots layering with a homespun knitted sweater for the full retro effect.
Louise Trotter designed Joseph's cornflower-blue and white cotton-oxford Arden shirtdress with the modern woman in mind. The exaggerated silhouette is anchored by a point collar and neat cuffs and finished with a coordinating tie to define the waist. Slip it on over a pair of trousers leaving the bottom unbuttoned for a contemporary finish.
Everything comes with a twist at Joseph for Pre-AW17. This khaki-green cotton Will shirtdress is gathered at the front and back yokes for exaggerated volume then tempered with a wide self-fastening waist belt. It's a perfect choice for contemporary office wear - simply style it with backless loafers and see.
The paintbox-bright floral print on Joseph's white silk crepe de Chine Josie midi dress was plucked from the storied Liberty archives - a detail that reflects the new collection's 1970s theme. The loose silhouette is enhanced by gathered panels while an oversized point collar cements the retro vibe. Button it to the top and ground with block-heel boots adding a chunky knitted sweater once the mercury drops.
This Joseph navy Clea slip dress is a faultless example of modern sophistication. Suspended from barely there shoulder straps the V-neck shape skims the silhouette and falls to an ankle-grazing fluted hem. Wear it in the week beneath a chunky-knit and box-fresh trainers slipping on heels for an alluring after-dark look.
Joseph's cream silk-crepe Fay dress is a modern take on demure dressing. The loose shape is defined by ruching at the centre before falling to an asymmetric hem for a fishtail-like effect and it's finished with a back slit for fluid movement. Style yours with a shoulder bag and block-heel ankle boots - muted colours will create a harmonious result.
This washed-black stretch-cady Mati dress is practical and polished as expected at Joseph. It falls in a wrap-style silhouette that's defined with inverted shoulder pleats and a slip-through waistband belt enhanced with a D-ring at the concealed-hook fastening. Go for an elegantly austere look by matching with tonal block-heel boots.
Easy 1970s silhouettes dominate Joseph's Pre-AW17 collection as illustrated by this poppy-red crepe Grace shirtdress. It's cut to a loose silhouette with a button-down placket and white topstitching at the shoulders and the waist-defining belt. Save it for a warm day in the city styled with pointed slipper shoes.
Joseph's classically elegant aesthetic is delivered in full in this black stretch woven fabric Arka dress. The feminine silhouette is accented with raw edges across the neckline and is cinched at the waist with a coordinating buckle-fastening belt before falling into a softly pleated hem that skims along the shins. Contrast it against snakeskin-effect boots as part of a contemporary evening ensemble.
Joseph's pared-back yet sophisticated aesthetic is perfectly illustrated in this red Elvi shirtdress. It's crafted from mid-weight silk crepe de Chine that falls fluidly from a sharp exaggerated spread collar and is punctuated with tonal braided buttons and stark white topstitching along the asymmetric front. Wear it with black leather knee-high boots for the most chic result.
For understated elegance look to Joseph's burgundy semi-sheer silk-georgette Crosby dress. It features a matching satin collar and a V-neck with skinny self-fastening neck ties before falling from a pleated waistband seam into a fluid calf-skimming hem. Define the waist with the tie belt and slip on black ruched slides to continue the unstudied look.
Sleek and sophisticated with a ladylike lilt Joseph's ecru and black zebra-print Cassidy shirtdress is the perfect pick to take you from work to events. It's crafted from fluid silk-satin and shaped with a point collar and long sleeves with exaggerated button-fastening turn-up cuffs and falls into a midi-length curved hem with side slits. End on black leather backless loafers in the day and switch to skyscraping stilettos come evening.
