So there's been a thread or two but I cannot find this:
A little black dress....with...
A gently structured shape (not so stretchy it clings to every bit you don't want it to)
Nips in at the waist
A line skirt
Around knee length ish
Sleeves, ideally elbow length
So simple I can wear it with formal courts by day then some metallic or glitter boots by night!
Not absolutely budget busting!

Can anyone help?

I don’t know if there will be this exact dress but maybe try zara? Or h&m maybbbe if you’re lucky. Where have you looked so far? And have you typed in some of those key terms on google shopping to see if anything similar came up?

I used to have that exact dress by Betty Jackson Black from Debenhams. It was perfect and flattering but eventually I wore it out.

No idea if there's anything like that now but I came across it by chance and wouldn't have thought of looking at that brand at all.

How about this

I have a previous season version (more of a boat neck) and it it beautifully versatile

I've looked in the usual new look Dorothy perkins oasis...
I like both those dresses, the banana Republic is much more than I was looking to pay. It'd have to be absolutely perfect for that!
The esprit is really lovely, am quite ample of bosom so never quite sure if such a high neckline is good or not. Whether it will emphasise or actually minimise.

Boden have a ponte dress that fits the bill. £90 but currently codes floating around for 20% off.
