The one dress you need this summer

Now, I don’t do off-the-shoulder. And, I hadn’t been to Urban Outfitters in about 45 years, but when Natasha told me about a dress that was super-flattering, came in 4 different colour ways and would basically make my summer, I had to have a look….

Last week Natasha posted this pic of her wearing an amazing dress on Instagram (and then later on the blog). I lusted after it from afar, thinking ‘wow’, but I could never wear that due to my strange shoulders. But then, when I was in town with my W&W wife yesterday, we popped into store and I tried a dress on. Blow me down with a feather, it was amazing! The arm straps (or sleeves?) meant that I didn’t feel overexposed, so actually baring my shoulders was ok! In fact, more than ok. It was great. Available in five different patterns – red, gingham, an orangey one and a purple floral print, there is also a blue one, which I have just spied online. There may even be more, they seem to be breeding. If you are on the hunt for a summer dress that could take you from school run to holiday to dinner at night. This is it!

    TopShop did a near-identical one in the spring – in black with rose print, or navy with white stars. I have the first one – and I agree it is ridiculously easy to wear!

    I am tempted by the red….
