Heatwave or no heatwave, white dresses make for the ideal summer attire. On cooler days, experiment by layering short-sleeved styles over a non-seasonal piece, such as a Breton or a block-coloured tee, and under a trending jacket, such as an oversized blazer. However, on the days when the weather plays ball, all you need to round off a chic white-dress look is a pair of chunky sandals, minimal jewellery and whichever handbag takes your fancy. (We recommend one of the basket variety.)
