Lovers of retro-inspired fashion with a contemporary twist will appreciate the Annie Dress by British designer Coco Fennell.
It's made of a lovely soft red moss crepe fabric in a classic shirtdress style. Darts on the bodice, a neat waist and flippy skirt ensure the dress flatters your figure whilst a gingham collar adds retro cachet and creates that fifties summer vibe. A column of embroidered ants marching across the collar add a witty twist and set this dress apart from the pack. Wear with opaques now and raffia wedges once the weather warms up.
It's a very reasonable £79 - available from Cleo's website here.
