All hail the holiday dress! Well, actually, invest wisely and you’ll be able to make it work for all your summer plans – weddings, weekends away, the odd summer party and all those hours in the office.
We absolutely love this retro-inspired cotton dress from Monsoon.
Its classic gingham print is perfect for summer days. And its flattering, nipped-in waist makes it versatile to dress up and down. The midi dress is still a huge trend so that’s another tick too.
Here are our tips for how to wear it:
Grab a straw bag (this summer’s accessory must-buy) and step into some tan leather sandals. Save us a cocktail…
In the office
Pair with block heels, brogues or loafers and throw on a slouchy blazer for ultimate nine-til-five style.
On the weekend
Chunky white sneakers and a leather jacket are all you need to nail your street style look two simple steps. Also doubles up as a cool festival fashion outfit
for the summer.
At the party
Bust out the heels: how about trying some new-season slingbacks or ankle-tie styles in a clashing bright bold shade?
