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.
Get your frills
Feminine frill sleeves, a pretty natural prints, lace detailing and a boho tassel fastening are all dress details to look out for if you want a carefree vibe that’s perfect for summer staycations. Wear with neutral accessories and add delicate gold jewellery for a finishing touch.
Take it to the max
Bright colour, a pretty floral print, breezy tiered shape and adjustable straps make this Per Una maxi dress a warm-weather winner. Wear it with simple white sneakers or white sliders and pop a denim jacket over the top until strappy-top season is here.
Show your stripes
A relaxed dropped-waist fit, elbow-length sleeves, subtle stripes and a flattering midi length add up to summer holiday dress perfection. Styles such as this one will be a throw-on-and-go favourite for many summers to come. Add a beachy bracelet and tan slides to get the holiday vibe at home.
