Officially the one dress to rule summer in
By Maybelle Morgan, 3 July 2017
It's time to throw out the rulebook as SS17 is all about the LRD (little red dress) – a colourful addition to your summer wardrobe that packs extra weekend mileage. In a blood orange and paying tribute to the 80s with puff half sleeves, prepare to fall in love. Here are three ways to style it…

Dress for the weather you want, right? If the sun’s making a rare outing, wear the piece on its own to keep the focus on its cutesy flare’n’frill hem. Accessorise with summer’s most wanted – the wicker tote – and keep it casj with white sneaks. Next? Find a barbecue and a glass of something cold.
You’re meeting your fave WhatsApp group for a food-fuelled debrief and you want to look your best. Embrace SS17’s ubiquitous dress-over-jeans trend by layering your LRD over straight-leg denim. Up the ante with fancy accessories: tassel earrings, spacey heeled sandals and a mini tote bag.
When it’s time to face the music, this dress makes for the perfect pretty-meets-edgy compromise. The trick is all in the layering, so add a hoodie and an animal-print trophy jacket to nail major skater vibes. Finish with cowboy boots (yes, they are back) and some tassel-drop earrings.
