Style Advisor: Dresses That Spark Joy

Style Advisor: Dresses That Spark Joy

Whilst we wait for blue skies and those summer vibes we were promised, our thoughts are turning to the season’s steadiest item: the dress. After a bleak old 2020, the SS21 catwalks were awash with a mish mash of bright colours and joy-inducing prints as designers rebelled against our everyday drudgery, resulting in one of the biggest trends of the season: the mood-boosting frock. From Ganni’s watercolour lilacs to Rixo’s cooler take on gingham, meet summer’s finest printed dresses, styled by a few of our fashion favourites.

ULTRA LILAC

Pastels are having a moment and lilac might just have snatched the top spot for the colour of the season. Wear yours billowing, cut above the knee and matching to your accessories. On your feet? A pair of knee-high embossed croc boots from the hottest footwear brand of the moment: Paris Texas.

CHECK, PLEASE

Proving gingham doesn’t have to be quaint, Rixo – the undisputed queens of the printed midi dress – have thrown in a sexy slit and clever panelling to keep the dress hugging to your curves and showing off just enough skin. Team with chunky black buckled sliders and a solid cross-body bag to keep things cool not cute.

PARK LIFE

Statement sleeves? Check. Rouched top? Check. Baby blue print? Check. Ganni’s printed mini ticks all the boxes for those heatwaves in the park. Just add strappy mules, Cult Gaia’s bestselling wooden Fan Ark bag and some killer specs.
