So British Summer Time is officially upon us, and what better way to celebrate the shift to lighter evenings and warmer weather than with a sunny little addition to your wardrobe? I feel like I’ve been wearing chunky knits, scarves and various other forms of woollen accessories for an aeon.
But this cute Missoni zigzag dress is bright, breezy and oh-so-chic.
The luxury Italian label is famed for producing iconic knitwear prints and this dress sums its aesthetic up perfectly. The pattern – a mix of black, white, green, orange and purple zigzags – is constructed in a fine-quality knit material and the slim straps and square neck give it an elegant finish.
If I was to wear this dress, I’d take inspiration from Margherita Missoni, the heiress to the fashion house. She’s got that laid-back, glamorous, bohemian vibe going on and wears Missoni with simple sandals, huge sunglasses, a slick of coral lipstick and Mediterranean sun-kissed skin.
All perfectly achievable, providing the Italians whisk a bit of their nice weather our way…
