I’m calling it: the white dress is the only dress worth investing in for your holiday, not least because it looks great with a tan. Whether it’s a button-down linen or a floaty maxi, it’s the most flattering blank canvas you can accessorise to your heart’s content with anything from basket bags to sandals and shell jewellery.
There’s one dress in particular that my Instagram scrolling can’t keep up with, and it comes in at a bargainous £38, which is perfect if you don’t want to break the bank for one holiday.
It comes courtesy of Next, features a pretty broderie Anglais finish, cold shoulders and buttons down the front, and has the fashion influencer seal of approval.

On holiday (somewhere like Cinque Terre or Bali, where everyone seems to be going at the moment), wear it with a statement earring and a basket bag.
That said, don’t be put off my me calling it the perfect holiday dress though, because it works just as well in the city.
Simply dress it up a notch with a minimalist monochrome sandal and structured bag, a la Twinset below, or with Superga trainers and a denim jacket.
