The dress is from Amanda Wakeley's Fall/Winter 2011 collection (which is now almost two full seasons ago!), which goes to show that a great dress is timeless. If you're a brunette like Carla, then orange should be on your list of new and fresh colours. We are seeing rich shades of orange and pumpkin this season, and some more bold and bright shades right through Resort 2013.
Colour trends are easy to wear as you can choose a style that suits you, but since this season is all about draping and pleats, why not combine two trends in one? Both Rebecca Taylor and Juicy Couture offer belted draped dresses that can be worn both day and night - for the evening, just add more gold (jewelry and accessories), and for the day, just thrown on a sharp black blazer. If you're in a ladylike mood, check out the Double Collar Crepe dress courtesy of Victoria Beckham's diffusion collection, Victoria by Victoria Beckham. Perfect if you want to make an impression in the office!
