The Perennial Dresses You Need in Your Wardrobe

There are some dresses that last the test of time, those perennial pieces that you reach for year on year, on year. A growing squad of garms that got your back. For us each Summer season we add to our collection of white dresses as we know that we will love them now, next year and beyond.

There are some key criteria if you want to fit into this white dress #squad. Length can differ but invariably there’s a spot of lace, crochet also wins as does pin tucking, pleats, ruffles or frills.

When there is a lack of colour it’s all in the detail.

It’s funny how these elements work in many silhouettes whichever takes your fancy. A free fitting smock in white with crochet trim is not only laid back but practical in the hot weather {not to mention large lunches} A fitted lady like Victoriana-esque style like this one Alice is wearing is a little bit prim but the half lined skirt and waist cut outs give it just enough sauce. If you like to release your inner boho child when the sun is shining then this low lace up back prairie dress Hannah has on will have you twirling ’til dawn, just look at that fringing.

We love the diversity of situations you can wear this sort of dress to {apart from a wedding #obvs} from the city with trainers and a beaten up biker jacket to holiday on the beach or out for dinner. We also love layering a poloneck underneath come Autumn and adding tights and boots to get more bang for your buck.

Like a pretty perennial flower we are confident these pieces are worth planting in your wardrobe and lovingly nurturing, they will keep giving you joy year after year.
