For those of us who don’t holiday year round, summer presents a curiously compelling proposition: the opportunity to inhabit an alternate persona with a proclivity for crochet and cotton rather than, say, pencil skirts and stilettoes. Floaty dresses are shorthand for summertime insouciance – it’s basically impossible to be livid while wearing one – and if you’re not the sort inclined towards print then white cotton is as seasonally appropriate as it gets. Here, from shirt dresses to slinky slips, are our favourites. Team with chunky gold jewellery, a raffia handbag and become the very embodiment of the spirit of summer.
