The lace-up front of Marysia's 'Nantucket' dress is mirrored on the split sleeves - a key feature in the label's Spring '17 collection. This light and breathable piece is cut from cotton and has deep side slits. Slip this bohemian style over a bikini or swimsuit.
'Timeless minimalism' is the phrase Solace London co-founders Laura Taylor and Ryan Holliday-Stevens use to describe their precision-cut designs. Cut from lustrous satin-crepe, this asymmetric 'Larin' dress has long neck ties that drape down the back and create a chic turtleneck silhouette. We love it styled with tonal cream ankle boots.
Who says saccharine-hued florals are reserved just for spring? For Fall '17, Rosie Assoulin looks to interiors and soft furnishings for inspiration. Crafted from cream silk-organza, this dress is appliquéd with an array of handmade petals and blooms for a cool collage effect - we particularly love how the spaghetti straps fall to hanging ribbons at the back. Channel the label's styling and team yours with a deep red lip.
Chloé's cream midi dress is finely knitted from lightweight wool yarns, but ribbing and more defined seams at the shoulders, bust and waist mean the fabric holds its shape without feeling too draped. Like all the house's clothes, it has a retro, bohemian feel but in a subtle, natural way.
After becoming inspired to create his own knitwear line, Victor Glemaud spent a year searching for a universally appealing yarn and the right factory to produce it. This dress is spun from soft cotton and cashmere-blend with cable-knit patterns along the front. Our favorite part is the back - it turns to reveal a cape-effect overlay and the label's signature skin-baring cutouts.
MICHAEL Michael Kors' cream sweater dress is spun from a soft fabric that contains touches of wool and cashmere. It has tiered ruffles along the sleeves and a high neckline. Try yours with a pair of neutral loafers.
Based between Moscow and London, Olga Vilshenko is inspired by both Eastern and Western fashion traditions and aesthetics. This 'Karoline' dress is cut from fluid silk-twill and decorated with bouquets of ditsy florals in fresh pink and orange hues. The wrap-effect front highlights the slimmest part of your frame and falls to a swishy asymmetric hem.
One of Russia's most celebrated designers, Olga Vilshenko grew up watching her mother create beautiful one-of-a-kind clothes for the family, and this spirit of creativity still informs her collections today. This silk-twill 'Emilie' dress has a sheer point d'esprit tulle yoke and ruffled trims that frame your shoulders beautifully. It's printed all-over with vintage florals - a brand signature.
We love pieces that you can switch up and customize to suit different occasions - Maggie Marilyn's dress is our latest discovery. It's cut from lustrous pinstriped silk-satin and comes with detachable ruffles that can be worn cross-body, at the waist and even around the neck. Wear the ties double wrapped or loosely draped.
Oscar de la Renta's tulle gown is the result of over 300 hours of intricate hand-embroidery - it's delicately embellished with paillettes and lamé discs that catch the light from every angle. The tiered skirt is lined for opacity and the bodice is internally structured for support, so you don't need to worry about choosing the right bra. Complement the metallic embellishments with gold accessories.
Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini's Fall '17 collection is inspired by the '60s mod gang - think Edie Sedgwick and Elizabeth Taylor. Cut from stretchy cream pointelle-knit, this dress is defined by lace ruffles at the neckline, cuffs and waist. Channel the era by styling yours with platform sandals.
The color palette of Lela Rose's Resort '18 collection is inspired by delicate florals - the pale-blush hue of this wool-blend crepe mini dress is called 'Petal'. It has gently gathered folds along the sleeves that are held together by faux pearls to create a fluted shape. We love it with a soft pink lip and matching manicure.
The Row's Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are known for their meticulous attention to detail - to them, the fit and feel of a garment is just as important as how it looks. This 'Vera' gown is impeccably made from soft and lustrous cream silk-cloqué. It skims beautifully over your figure and falls to a floor-sweeping hem. We think it's an elegant choice for events or brides seeking something understated but no less romantic.
Rebecca Vallance's dresses are glamorous and feminine, but in a way that feels completely modern and cool - snap one up if you have a wedding or big event to go to soon. This 'Blanca' style is designed for a close fit from ivory crepe overlaid with gold lace. It has tonal satin ribbons that tie prettily in a bow at the shoulder and bodice seams that define the waist.
The last thing we want to worry about on vacation is what to wear - SEA's easy-to-style dress works as a coverup at the beach or for lunches in the city. Cut from airy cotton-gauze, this mini style has ruffled shoulders, blue embroidery and crochet-trims. Try yours with sandals and a straw clutch.
RIXO London Creative Directors Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey hand-paint all of their prints - the black palm trees and red suns on this 'Cindy' dress are inspired by Thai beaches. Made from crepe, it has a kimono-style wrap front that fastens with a self-tie waist belt. Opt to wear it undone over jeans and a T-shirt.
Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton in Woody Allen's Manhattan inspire the free-spirited energy of Chloé's Pre-Fall '17 collection. Capturing the mood perfectly, this mini dress is cut from cream crepe with romantic poet sleeves and buttons along the raglan seams that narrow the shoulders. Fasten the tie at the back to cinch your waist.
Expertly cut to contour your waist and hips, Hervé Léger's dress has a fluted hem to balance the slim proportions. It's made from smoothing white bandage and has a slightly sheer ribbed sweetheart-shaped yoke and sleeves to showcase a hint of skin. We like it with silver accessories.
Louise Trotter reworks menswear staples with a feminine twist for Joseph's Fall '17 runway collection. This printed 'Cassidy' shirt dress is cut from lustrous silk-satin that gives the classic shape a more fluid, laid-back feel. Unfasten the cuffs to emphasize the oversized silhouette.
Designed in a kimono silhouette, Oscar de la Renta's gown is made from whisper-weight silk crepe de chine woven with fil coupé gold leaves. This sheer style is lined with a fitted slip and has waist ties that can be worn in different ways depending on how much definition you want.
