Gwyneth Paltrow makes a strong case for the return of flaty florals. See her incredible look, here...
Gwyneth Paltrow is not one to play it safe in the style stakes, and has long been tempting us with her impressive sartorial skills (think button-up shirts offset with barely there denim shorts and some sort of luxe-looking pair of flat leather sandals), and this latest outfit is no different.
Stepping out in The Hamptons to attend a super-glitzy, celeb filled summer party alongside fellow actress Lena Dunham, Gwyneth slipped into this beautiful floral maxi dress, giving us all a lesson is how to work floaty florals.
Naturally, Gwyneth’s signature red lip and super-sleek blow-dry is ever present, lending this somewhat casual style an A-List edge. But somehow, as ever, Gwynnie has managed to overhaul a basic (and often considered boring) trend, into something far cooler.
Showcasing her enviably long legs, the 42-year-old went for a pair of lace-up espadrille flatforms to complete her Hamptons look.
And should you be heading off to some sort of stylish summer soirée in the coming few weeks, this could well be the way to go.
The high street has offered up plenty of gardenia prints for SS15, and with the 70s trend looking set to stick around long into AW15, there is plenty on offer when it comes to maxi dresses.
We’re leaning towards H&M’s tropical printed version, complete with ultra-flattering kimono-style sleeves, or, should you fancy splashing out on something extra special, it has to be Vilshenko’s white offering.
Take your cue from Gwyneth Paltrow and ensure you’re wearing summer’s must-have printed maxi dress, and shop our top four styles below.
