Find your perfect summer dress

The must-have Zara dress you need to buy right now

All hail the holiday dress! Well, actually, invest wisely and you’ll be able to make it work for all your summer plans – weddings, weekends away, the odd summer party and all those hours in the office.  We absolutely love this halterneck, waist-tie dress from Zara. Its statement animal print is perfect for summer days. And its simple, fuss-free shape makes it versatile to dress up and down. The midi dress is still a huge trend, so that’s another tick too.

Here's how to wear it:

On holiday  Grab a straw bag (this summer’s accessory must-buy) and step into some tan leather sandals. Save us a cocktail… In the office Pair with block heels, brogues or loafers and throw on a slouchy blazer for ultimate nine-til-five style.  On the weekend Chunky white sneakers and a leather jacket are all you need to nail your street style look two simple steps. Also doubles up as a cool festival fashion outfit for the summer. At the party Bust out the heels: how about trying some new-season slingbacks or ankle-tie styles in a clashing bright bold shade?
