Finding the Perfect Day to Night Summer Dress.
Post in collaboration with Selfridges.
Despite being an October baby, summer dressing is kind of my jam. But that’s not to say it’s easy, I often spend hours trawling online and rooting through stores to find the perfect additions to my summer wardrobe. One of the items I always feel I lack is that perfect, all occasion summer dress. The one that can take you from brunch in the city, or a sun soaked stroll, to beachside drinks on your summer holiday. But Selfridges came through with this little white number from Diane Von Furstenberg which has filled the gap in my wardrobe nicely!
Selfridges always have an amazing range of designer dresses and whilst browsing I realised I’d never purchased any Diane Von Furstenberg dresses before, and whilst there were a fair few summery shirt dresses that caught my eye, it was the DVF knot-waist cotton-poplin shirt dress that I knew would fit perfectly in to my wardrobe. Light, and floaty, with pockets and a skirt that is just screaming out for me to do a little twirl in it. It’s love. It’s such a gorgeous fabric, which is so breathable and perfect for warmer weather, all finished off with a gorgeous nude trim to the inside panel of the collar and button holes and a tie waist which is one of my new favourite additions to any dress, playsuit or jumpsuit as it cinches you in at the waist and is so flattering!
The length is also a winner for me, and I think it would work beautifully whatever your height. It’s designed to hit around the knee, which is perfect for me, as the length is more midi length – one of my favourite dress lengths for summer. Mini dresses are great, but there’s something so flattering and pulled together with a knee length or longer cut. Whether I wear it with lace up sandals and a basket bag (my new obsession! Full post coming soon!) during the day or a pair of dainty strappy heels and a cute clutch in the evening, it just works with everything and is totally perfect for a summer holiday and beyond.
