SUMMER HOLIDAY DRESSES FOR
WEEKENDS AND STAYCATIONS

With the British weather as changeable as ever, there’s even more reason to embrace the power of wearing a mood-boosting dress

Burst into bloom

Florals are a fashion perennial, and a delicate all-over ditsy print ticks the bucolic trend beautifully. Try vintage-inspired silhouettes with trainers or sandals. Throw a cardigan or denim jacket over the top if you want to layer up.
