Your Guide To Luxe Lingerie

1. Backless, strapless or multiway?

Wowing in a daring dress choice is one thing, but if you're going to bare your shoulders or try a cut-out, you'll want to avoid flashing your bra straps. That's where backless and strapless plus the brilliant multiway styles come in. They can be worn dozens of different ways and best of all, they'll keep you comfortable all night long. We love the '100 ways to wear' Multiway Body Solutions Plunge bra from M&S - it's been made to solve even the most difficult of underwear dilemmas.

2. Hot hosiery

You might live in your black opaques during the day, but there's nothing like a pair of glamorous tights to complement your evening look. We're talking sparkly, striped and sheer, from jewel-embellished to dogstooth print.

3. Shape shifters

Shapewear is the secret to looking svelte. From a bodycon slip (it's ideal for wearing under dresses) to waist-sculpting knickers, this lingerie is designed to flatter. Who doesn't want to feel a million dollars during party season?
