The '80s detail to transform your summer dress

Although puff sleeves may evoke memories of a brace-faced Drew Barrymore in a horrific metallic meringue of a dress (Never Been Kissed, obviously), trust us when we say that the '80s have had a chic overhaul for summer. It's all about subtle baby puffs adorning your summertime dress, so join Dolce & Gabbana and Kendall Jenner in championing the look.

Throwback French Riviera vibes were the resounding theme at Dolce & Gabbana's SS17 show, as stiff half sleeves in opulent jacquard reigned supreme. Princess was turned all the way up with embellished mini skirts, loafers and clutches encrusted in diamanté and, oh yes, a bejeweled crown.
