Sophisticated and charming with a nod to 1960s style, this textured shift will see girls through any celebration, from parties to weddings, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
A special occasion calls for a special dress. I love this simple shift, inspired by the season’s 1960s trend, which can be dressed up or down to suit the event. Pretty, without being overtly girlie, it’s the kind of dress that’s easily adapted to suit any style by adding a few accessories. Rosette-textured in a rich midnight blue, it will see girls through birthday parties, weddings and christenings with equal aplomb – and despite its delicate appearance, it can be machine washed, even at 30 degrees. All in all, a great investment partywear piece.
