With the imminent release of the latest James Bond film, Spectre, on 26th October, who doesn’t want to
be invited to a Black Tie event? And where the dress code is not Cocktail but full length gowns?
Oh the joys of dressing up! And of course it gets us all in the mood for festive occasions and Christmas parties.
This week’s style edit is going to stay on the formal where elegance is the order of the evening.
Putting on your finery – where you can showcase your James Bond style too doesn’t mean breaking the bank.
Below we’ve featured our 5 best picks of the high street. Which means you can splash out on some gorgeous
lingerie and accessories too.

Putting on a beautiful dress is one thing. What are you going to wear underneath?
For absolute body confidence and a smooth silhouette, Shapewear not only comes to your rescue but further
enhances your feminine shape. We’ve matched appropriate underwear to the dresses below.
And given the popularity of Marks & Spencer, we’ve deliberately chosen several of their pieces.
Under the damson dress:
Floral body, Marks & Spencer
Silhouette slip by Phase Eight
Firm control slip, Marks & Spencer
Under the black dress:
Strapless bra by Marks & Spencer
Power high waist slip by Maidenform
Under the red dress:
Strapless body, Marks & Spencer
Under the bottle green dress:
Strapless bra, Wonderbra
Thigh slimmers, Marks & Spencer
Under the turquoise green dress:
Strapless bra for the fuller bust, Ultimo
High waist briefs, Maidenform
We work with 7 body shapes here at Capsule Wardrobe Collection: from the lean & straight to the full & curvy.
And each shape is perfect. Wearing gorgeous lingerie makes you feel wonderful.
But when we want to look our beautiful best, a little bit of lace might not be quite enough.
CWC style tip: choose the right underwear for your body shape.
