Why Bolder Is Better: My Current Favorite Day Dress

A floral midi dress is the perfect item for the beach days, after-work drinks and barbecues that fill your summer calendar. Whatever the occasion, the toughest part can be choosing which one to wear: elegant printed maxi or colorful cotton mini? For the daytime add a mini bag, some shades and chunky sandals. When the sun goes down, add some statement earrings and a clutch to see you through to the early hours. 

My big tip with patterned dresses is that you mustn’t be afraid to go bold. Whether it’s a bright color, a daring pattern or an unusual shape, I’m all for experimenting with my fashion choices. Try stepping outside of your comfort zone to make a statement with your look; pulling off a bold look is all about having the courage to do so – after all, confidence is the best accessory.

Scroll through my list of bold and bright dresses that will keep you looking chic all Summer.

  • #ad We must focus on finding the positives where we can at the moment and for me, part of that’s wearing bright colours around the house. Wearing colour has been proven to help lift your mood so I’m stocking up on comfy home clothes in bold colours and pretty printed wrap dresses. This sunny yellow and leopard combo is from @walmart shot a couple of weeks ago in Notting Hill.

Being at home so much has got me thinking about ways in which I can be more sustainable with my fashion choices. Choosing ethical brands and renting pieces is a good way to start. In such a strange time, I’m focusing on the positives where I can. Let’s hope it won’t be long before we can all be out in the sun again ☀️

  • Our street created a text group, and reached out to all our elderly neighbours with a note offering to help. Some of them we knew, some we didn’t. Some of them are now needing groceries, dog walking, and it got me thinking about how to make them less lonely, should they be feeling that way too. Here’s the care package we’re making... just in case you want to do something similar. We’ve got to take care of the Grannies & Grandpas, the way they once took care of us.
