This summer it’s all about playing peek-a-boo with a hint of midriff. Seen on the catwalk and on celebs, it’s not about the stomach flashing crop tops of the 90s, but a more reserved flash of flesh.

This apricot lace dress from Topshop will allow you to try out the trend without showing all. In a form-fitting bodycon style, it’ll hug your curves and create a slim silhouette, but don’t let that put you off – it’s a great tangy base for adding layers if you’re a little less brave.

Lace is also key for summer, and we love the cute lace panelling to offer a playful twist on the trend.

In a soft apricot shade, this is an ideal everyday dress for summer. Wear with ballerina hair – a topknot will add cool-girl edge – and zesty accessories to keep it feeling fresh (tomato-red lipstick is perfect for this look).
