Summer is the time to embrace all that is pretty and floral. Even when the weather isn´t brilliant, a dress in full bloom can make your day seem full of sparkle and sunshine. Whether you are a sucker for the fullest of blooms, or prefer the retro elegance of chintzy forties tiny flowers, floral dresses are pretty and versatile.
And you don´t need to be a girly girl to really enjoy them. Witness Alexa Chung, who rocks an oh so girlie dress with boots or brogues, or Kate Moss, who can toughen up a girlie flower power frock with a biker leather.
Here are some gorgeous new in frocks from Dorothy Perkins – how will you style yours?
