This dress has been my find of the (ironic laugh) summer. I was taking something back to Topshop (you know, one of those, “I’m actually making money” scenarios) when I saw it. It was love at first sight. The print, the length, the fluted sleeves, the chic of it. What you can’t see from this picture is that it laces up the sides, thus saving it from being overly prim. I am a big fan of the simplicity of a dress: throw on and be done. It’s also supremely on trend for AW( (just swap the sandals for shoes) – so it’s a canny investment. (See also the blue version – with a demure higher neckline).
