It is officially the summer of The Dress. Everywhere you look – on trains or at the tennis, at supper or in the supermarket – everyone’s wearing one.
The day styles that are dominating have several factors in common; they’re all pretty, breezy and cool to wear when it’s hot outside. You can get ready mindlessly, in sub-three minutes, because all you need to do is put on shoes – trainers, even – and you’ll look as though you’ve made a considerable effort. The compliments come in fast; everyone registers that you look glorious when you’re in a glorious dress,
