Dramatic holiday views call for a higher calibre of Insta-wow outfits, right? Upgrade your average tea dress with a flattering tie waist, front split and ruffles galore for max floor-swishing, motion-shot potential.

Spot on

It’s cute, pink and basically belongs in a HAIM music video. Go hard for that 60s vibe with this polka-dot wrap dress with barely there straps. Finish with chunky sliders and Dame Edna-style diamanté specs.

Monaco mood

OK, so Google Maps doesn’t say the French Riviera, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress the part. Enlist the help of a white ruffle-collar tea dress with wallpaper-print florals. Complete the look with retro accessories: think red heels, a wicker mini-tote and some siren lippie.

And for a summer update on the tea dress, take notes from ASOS Insider Debbie with this slightly off-the-shoulder ditsy dress in tomato red. Match your lippie and add sandals for that best-dressed wedding guest vibe.

Frill seeker

Your weekend vibes have never looked so precious and a floral mini-dress is 100% the culprit. Wear with fresh white sneaks and a denim jacket, or (for fancier plans) amp up with heeled boots and earrings.
