There are times when a dress is all about the finishing touches and in the case of this Rebecca Vallance number the focal point is most certainly the triple bow detail. A long sleeved shirt dress is a favourite style of mine but I definitely couldn’t resist when I saw the ultra sweet bows on this particular piece. And when said bows are worked back against a gingham print it adds a playful vibe to the ensemble. The directional gathered sleeves help it from becoming too girly, whilst adding an interesting point of difference. Given the busy nature of the dress simplicity is key for the rest of the look. A simple pair of pointed slides by Nicholas Kirkwood and a chain strap bag continues the smart vibe of the outfit whilst the addition of a straw boater by Nerida Winter make it weekend ready.
