There's nothing better to wear in warm weather than a lightweight cotton broderie anglaise dress. Be it Isabel Marant or Roberto Cavalli, Alberta Ferretti or Malene Birger, the little white dress is a necessary blank canvas to which you can add any accoutrements you fancy. A dainty gold chain and strappy flats or a chunky Marni necklace, colourful bangles and cork wedge sandals. Wear multiple silver necklaces and rings with tough biker boots or go the country route with a floppy sun hat and cowboy boots. My ultimate accessory however has to be one of these Olympia Le-Tan hand embroidered clutches and the equally quirky Kate Spade versions. Nerds and fashionable folk have finally found a common ground in these updated versions of the classics! Literature was my favourite subject in school and now my bookish inner self can finally tote these covetable clutches around with joy.
