One of the highlights of the season comes from Warehouse who has taken their cue from the bold and eccentric hot house prints so many of the SS16 designers have championed for the season.
There’s also a catwalk-approved maxi dress from MAJE and a to-die-for beachy dresses from Zimmermann which perfectly channel this seasons romantic mood. On top of all that, there’s denim pinafores, embroidered smocks, embellished shifts and colourful pleats to tempt you and to ensure you’re suitably dresses, whatever the occasion.
