Sometimes, when the days are rather grey, a bright colour can go a long way in making one feel a little more summery. A vibrant nail colour or scarf is sometimes all that’s needed to lift both the spirits and an outfit. Other times, it’s nice to go beyond that and have not just a pop of colour, but a veritable explosion.
This silk dress from Hope is one of the happiest dresses I’ve ever seen. It has just been loaned to me to photograph for my blog, so it’ll be winging it’s way back rather than coming on holiday with me, but wouldn’t it just be perfect for strolling to supper on a hot evening somewhere abroad? The fucshia pink and orange are such an uplifting combination and the pop-on shape makes it perfect for effortless post-beach dressing. That being said, I can think of numerous occasions that this dress would be perfect for in this country- a barbecue, a lunch date, shopping perhaps with a denim jacket or scarf if needed.
As with all Hope clothing it is beautifully cut and I particularly love the dipped hemline. It is one those dresses that would be part of a staple holiday wardrobe year after year. The only slight negative is that it is dry clean only, but that is of course to be expected with this gorgeous Crepe de Chine silk. It does however feel so divine that I’d say it’s probably worth it.
