The summer dress; trusted and relied on by generations, for when the sun comes out to play. Accompanied by a silk scarf, a straw hat, a cardigan or jacket, pretty pumps or even biker boots like Daisy, this simple creation can go a long way. It’s the perfect and trusted creation that hangs loyally in every woman’s wardrobe. Plus, it comes in all shapes to suit any body frame; from a skater a-line dress for the pears, to a bodycon for the hourglass.

Here’s my little example of the summer dress for your inspiration:

Lace dress from Dorothy Perkins, denim jacket from Topshop, silk rose hair comb from Matthew Williamson, feather necklace from Need Supply, flower earrings from Charlotte Russe, and to add to the effect Preppy Princess, fragrance from Vera Wang.
