First up are our absolutely stunning dresses from Sara Roka. Crafted in Italy, these dresses really are truly special pieces that are cut so beautifully. Timeless and elegant with a classic figure flattering sillhouette but with that added element of fun from the colour combinations and prints, these dresses are forever pieces and will come out of your wardrobe for event after event.
The great thing about these dresses is that you can have them without the cummerbund in order to give them a more casual look, worn with sandals, or in fact trainers, wearing without a cummerbund gives you that versatility to wear them in the day, perhaps for a special lunch, or if you're lucky enough to be heading off on a city break to the likes of Rome or Paris this summer, we can just imagine how elegant these will look wafting through those cobbled streets!
Worn with the cummberbund (available in a range of colours to pick out the colours in the prints, which can also be tied in a variey of ways to change the look), these dresses really are the perfect statement for a special event. Add a hat for ladies day at Ascot or a summer wedding in one of the key colours of the print- Holly Young has a great range (Holly Young Millinery, Hand made Hats, Headwear & Accessories) Here's a closer look of the dresses we have in store, but do pop in to see just how gorgeous they are in real life, it's very hard to capture on camera! Prices from £450, cummerbunds £65
We have two absolutely gorgeous prints in our Dea Kudibal cotton dresses, one for those of you that love a classic navy, with this very 'French chic' print and one in a vibrant and fun cherry print. Both dresses are the same figure flattering shape, with a waist tie and on trend exaggerated sleeves, they're also a great length as they are not too long, for reference Katie wearing them in the photos is 5ft5. We love that these dresses can be dressed up for the races or a wedding with a beautiful hat, we think the navy print would look just stunning with a large navy saucer hat! Add some dressy heels and you're ready for that special occassion, but add a straw bag and some espadrilles or flat sandals and you've got a gorgeous summer dress to wear on those hot days. We've also worn these dresses with trainers and a denim jacket for an easy, breezy daytime look.
A dress that says sunshine! This Weekend by MaxMara yellow dress has all the things we expect from one of our favourite brands, gorgeous material, a cut that flatters and quality like no other. Here we've teamed it with a raffia belt and espadrilles to give it more of a relaxed vibe, you could go even more casual by adding a denim jacket and your favourite trainers, but we think this dress looks abaolutely stunning dressed for a summer occasion. Team with bold gold accessories, heels and a clutch bag and you're ready to go and celebrate!
Pom Amsterdam are famed for their gorgeous and original prints, the prints are designed in house in Amsterdam by the sisters behind the brand. The shape of this dress means that it flows beautifully in real life and looks so elegant. This print has so many beautiful colours running through it which you could pick out with your accessories for a special ocassion. We think a pink or a blue hat would look gorgeous. But as always, we love a versatile piece, and as you can see below this dres can also be a great daytime look teamed with sandals or trainers.
We've teamed this cotton Weekend by MaxMara dress with trainers here for a casual look, add sandals and a straw bag for a holiday look, but we've seen it styled for a special occasion and let us tell you it looks fabulous! Wear with some heels (a gold chunky heel would give that great 70's vibe) and statement accessories, bold earrings look particularly gorgeous!
Go for the unexpected this season and wear a trouser suit for those special occasions. Trouser suits are having a real revival and it's easy to see why as they have such great outfit potential! Wear this Marc Cain suit (which by the way is just as beautifully tailored as you would expect) with heels and a hat, or some statement accessories. Wear again with a tee and trainers for a casual look, or of course wear the items separately, giving you a whole host of options after the big event.
We have just one left of this special dress from Pom Amsterdam, it's a gorgeous printed broderie anglais which gives a real nod to the 70's. Perfect with a chunky block heel and a big statement hat, but wear again on your with espadrilles, sandals or trainers for a more casual look.
Another more unexpected event look, a jumpsuit not only looks fab but can be a great comfortable alternative to a dress. We love this printed piece from Pom Amsterdam for it's light and breezy feeling, giving you that relaxed glamour look that can be so hard to find.
Nothing feels as special as wearing silk, this Primrose Park dress is crafted in a stunning silk print, which we think has a gorgeous vintage-esque look to it. With elegant sleeves and a pretty bow back detail, we'd go for a contrast colour for the hat and wear with one of these extra special bubble leather clutch bags from Tissa Fontenada.
