Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah attended the Lulu Guinness Paint Project Launch Party in London last week wearing a navy blue, knee-length, lace dress. The Never Leave You singer rarely looks anything short of fabulous, and we love how Amelle championed the knee-length hemline and proved that less really is more.

This season, long is the new short when it comes to hemlines. From the ‘Nude’ AW13 collection at Armani Privé to Stella McCartney’s Saville Row inspired AW13 range, the longer hem is the definitive emblem of the season. Amelle shows us how to reach a compromise between following this trend and exuding femininity by opting for a figure-hugging, knee-length dress with dainty lace detailing.

Join the ranks of the celebrities who are falling head over heels with this trend with our navy blue, knee-length, lace dress from Reiss. The bodycon material and soft lace finish counterbalance the longer hem, allowing you to channel sophistication just like Amelle. Pair your knee-length, lace dress with a statement necklace – we recommend our bestselling Ava choker necklace by Lagom! – and a pair of patent navy court shoes. Team LBD knows that fashion is all about the details, so for that extra special finishing touch why not invest in Joy Everley’s pearl bracelet for the ultimate go-to accessory to complete any outfit?
