Style Advisor: In The Garden

Evenings whiled away with G&Ts, sun-drenched afternoons filled with strawberries and champagne. There’s nothing quite as romantic, nor as typically British as time spent in the garden. We’re serving up a heady bouquet of florals, pastels and iconic accessories for summertime dressing fit for a walk down to the bottom of the garden.

FULL BLOOM

Dolce & Gabbana’s billowing hydrangea-print dress is an azure summertime must. The foliaged print is pretty without being saccharine or nostalgic, and it’s perfect for going barefoot in. Alternatively, wear with silver accessories and not much else.

PASTEL FRILLS

Avoid floral clichés and opt for a contrasting colour palette of black and dusky pink in directional but feminine shapes. Frilled hems recall the petals of the fragrant flowers we enjoy on balmy summer days, whilst the silhouettes keep it chic and contemporary.

FLORAL DREAM

Stop to smell the roses in Zimmermann’s dreamy silk wrap-around midi dress. The ethereal shape and gossamer-fine material make it the perfect piece to wear whilst frolicking in the breeze. Pair with some of Sophia Webster’s charming flower-embellished shoes.

FRAYED BLOSSOMS

Appliqued denim is set to be one of the new season’s biggest trends. Get ahead with Dolce and Gabbana’s frayed-hem, floral jeans. They’re a move away from the ditsy, hyper-feminine prints and perfect if you want something a little more casual, without compromising on style.
