Ghost’s first sell-out dress of the summer is here and here’s how to style it.

From last season’s printed silk skirts to floral midi dresses, Ghost has enjoyed a major resurgence thanks to its pretty prints and perfect silhouettes. And this summer’s collection is no different. 

The Nineties was, of course, all about wearing a slip dress – or skirt – with barely-there sandals, expertly coiffed hair and a petite little shoulder bag thrown in for good measure. This time around, though, Ghost eveningwear is being worn as much for day-to-day as it is for occasions. And none more so than the lemon print Alice dress.

The dress has already been spotted on some of our favourite fashion-insiders thanks to it’s versatile colour (we are all on board with summer black) and crepe fabric, flattering balloon sleeves and sweetheart neckline, its perfect midi-meets-maxi length and its playful ditsy lemon print.

Here’s how to wear it…

Dress it down for day-to-day with flat dad sandals, metal-framed aviators and a basket bag
