Colourful Dresses for summer (that I'd love in my wardrobe)
In some ways, summer is just beginning. The kids are off school, my actual holidays are coming up, so of course I am looking to pimp my wardrobe. A girl can dream of course, so welcome to my window shopping of dreams!
Rhode Resort’s green cotton Lena wrap dress is trimmed with blue tassels which lend it a tactile impression. Illustrated by a ditsy floral print, it’s crafted to a loose silhouette which is cinched in by the tie-fastening belt. Wear it with a basket bag and sandals for an alfresco lunch. Shown here with K.Jacques Zenobie leather sandals and Cult Gaia Cupola dome mini bamboo bag.
The loose silhouette of Rhode Resort’s red Aurora dress lends it a carefree feel, in keeping with the label’s bohemian aesthetic. It’s shaped from rose-printed voile with gathered puff sleeves, then falls into a loose-fitting tiered skirt. Slip it on with black sandals and a woven bucket bag for a relaxed day-to-evening edit. Shown here with Cult Gaia Millie rattan top-handle basket bag.
The purple and black abstract pattern illustrating Rhode’s blue cotton Leela midi dress evokes a joyful mood. It’s cut with a deep V-neck and features a trio of loose gathered tiers framed by vibrant yellow piping. Fasten the fabric ties at the nape of the neck in a feminine bow and slip on flat sandals for a confident look.
Mary Katrantzou embraces saturated hues and feminine silhouettes for Resort 2019 and this multicoloured Astere jacquard satin gown is the enchanting result. It's crafted in Italy with a hint of silk and lined in pink crepe de Chine, then fitted with concealed slip pockets just below the voluminous waist for a final note of nonchalance. Team it with a clutch and platform sandals for a colourful occasion edit.
Shown here with Aquazzura Baba 125 knotted suede platform sandals and Bienen-Davis Régine tassel cross-body bag.
Rhode Resort reworks its coveted Lena dress in ivory with a vibrant orange floral print for Resort 2019. It's made from cotton to a wrap construction, featuring a V-neckline, matching waist tie and a characterful tasselled hemline. Team it it with a woven bag and metallic sandals for a bohemian warm-weather edit.
Shown here with Cult Gaia Millie woven-rattan basket bag, Ancient Greek Sandals Desmos vachetta leather slides and Alighieri The Trace of a Tear gold-plated pendant necklace.
