Hard Working Dresses
Now that the sunshine has temped me to take my ankles out of hibernation, my thoughts have turned to dresses. With so many great options around it would be easy to get carried away and have one of each, but I must be good and (try to) focus on what I really need. With that in mind, here is my shortlist of dresses which will go that extra mile for you this season…
The Work to Dinner Dress
Sometimes you just don’t have the time or the inclination to change into a new outfit when you have a dinner date after work, and that’s where Queen of the versatile dress, Samantha Sung steps in. We have several options in store and online right now, but my pick for day-to-evening is the Claire dress. Smart enough for the office but sassy enough to feel you are ready for post-work cocktails.
The Summer Saviour Dress
It’s only early in the season, but like me you probably have so many invites to summer events that it feels like you may need a new dress every week from now until September. But fear not, there are dresses out there which can simply be changed up with a bit of clever accessorising, and will work for every occasion from weddings to sightseeing and everything in between. The Cantore dress by SportMax is a prime example. If you are lucky enough to be heading to Wimbledon this year, how amazing would this crisp white cotton number look at Centre Court? Just add sandals and strawberries and cream (of course). If you prefer a more colourful option, then DVF’s Penelope wrap dress is for you. Slick your hair into a low ponytail and team with minimalist leather mules for a look which is on trend and effortless.
The Showstopper Dress
We all know that first impressions count, so when you need to make an impact, a dress which says ‘look at me’ in the best possible sense is called for. This season we are looking to Osman for pieces which are truly modern and elegant in equal measure. The Zaneta strapless gown features Japanese inspired details and is cut in luxurious brocade – we adore the silver beetles! If monochromatic dressing is your thing, the Gigi dress is all you need. It offers the perfect balance of bold print and feminine touches. Both are available to shop in store now.
