With the summer event season calling us out of hibernation, occasionwear and party dresses are the buzz words of the moment. Plan your calendar and your outfits ahead of time then sit back and let the excitement build!
Perfect for garden parties, luncheons and afternoon cocktails, bursts of colour keep the mood playful when the sun is still up.
Colour popping prints fizz, making a statement with minimum effort. Try the Ophelia Dress in Bubbles - her maxi length keeps her bold print elegant.
Solid blocks of colour craft a sophisticated take on bolder shades. Keep lines clean and play with accessories to transform your look from event to event.
Use Accessories To Transform A Classic Dress
Make use of accessories to up-style a classically cut dress. Go light and bright for daytime and heighten the contrast for night, playing with dark accents to conjure eveningwear glamour.
Dress For Summer Lovin'
For tales of summer loving: weddings, christenings, bridal showers and all the joyous occasions in life, paint a pretty picture in poetic florals.
Cut your romance with a contemporary edge - the contrast of Jamila's white, cornflower and navy blues creates a graphic feel to her floral pattern.
The Shilleen Dress with her fixed-wrap front, creates a flattering sweep across the torso with a fan of ruching through the middle. Her gathered sleeveheads work to define the shoulderline while her straight skirt shapes a seductive silhouette.
Style her with a bold contrast accessories to add punch to her pretty.
Party in the park or picnic in the sun? Go for flowing and breathable styles. Step up the styling with statement sunglasses, sandals and a chic sunhat!
The phrase 'dress to impress' does not only refer to dresses - make an impact with stylish separates.
Experiment with colour and print at your leisure by pairing a bold top with a classic bottom.
Invest in a solid pant or skirt style that will match back with a variety of colours and prints. Then have fun mixing top styles to re-shape your looks for all your summer events.
Up-style your lbd
Back To Black
Re-style your little black dress for the summer season with colourful accessories.

Love my new Tristan top in bubbles. Lovely colours that will match a lot of bottoms. Looking forward to wearing her for Christmas.
Versatile, comfortable and easy to dress up or down. And of course..... well made!
Love my black slinky Vera slip.
Will work under many of my dresses (and add a little modesty at work).
An excellent and simple design.
Love this Goldie dress in Teacup. So cool and breezy.
With a belt or without it looks great.
What a beautiful, light weight soft flowing shirt. Use for summer, or layer it with a cami for winter.
Beautiful print and soft luxurious fabric and I love the cowl neck line.
Thank you Leina and Fleur.
I’m so glad I finally gave this unusual combo of colours a go. I wear with black but would almost certainly work with navy as well.
Planning on wearing this for Christmas lunch. Golden colour is very festive and the flowing swishy skirt looks dressed up, and will be cool if we finally get some hot weather.
Good to find a belt that defines your waist but is not too wide. Can sit comfortably in this without it digging in. Elastic back is a great idea.
And I love it. Milano has all my autumn type colours in it, so easy to match with my jackets and boots. Very comfortable to wear, but also looks very very smart. Sizing spot on for me according to the charts.
Very stylish love Ophelia dress
Beautiful gabi dress in rosie I love it
Love my chyka dress very stylish
Swishy all round! Have had lots of comments on this style and print. Well done, L&F Team!!
Beautiful dress, fabric and pattern are classic as is the cut. The quality of this brand is second to none!
