The summer event dress
Timeless and elegant, this floral and lace dress is the perfect choice for mastering the season’s calendar of events in style, says M&S.com womenswear editor, Charlene Barton.
Think of the summer months and immediately you’re presented with a list of occasions that require stylish pause for thought: what to wear? From weddings to garden parties, it’s important to find a truly classic piece that not only makes you feel good, but also ticks the dress code. Case in point, this feminine design from M&S Collection, as worn by chef and M&S Leading Lady, Rachel Khoo. Combining a modern monochrome palette with a nipped-in waist and delicate lace embroidery, it’s the epitome of sophistication. Dress it up with heels and a statement hat for sporting events or summer nuptials, swapping for flat sandals and a cashmere shrug for a more casual affair.
