If you’re lucky enough to have a partner who’s planning on taking you to a lovely restaurant, by now you’re going to be fretting!

Peplum dresses offer the perfect combination of style, sexy and sophistication for any restaurant. You can control how daring you want to be by choosing the right kind of peplum dress. Cut out varieties can showcase your midriff above your hips, mesh and lace can provide a way to show a little more skin without having to go completely strapless. Remember that ruched peplum dresses can be an excellent way to divert attention from your waistline and hips, great for the pear shaped amongst us.

You shouldn’t find yourself choosing between stilettos if you’re heading for a picnic in the park, whilst those beautiful flat boots are not going to look great in the restaurant! The runway is showing us that Spring heels are going to feature a lot of ankle buckles, alongside a revival of the flat, pointed toes from the ‘90s.
