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…
Teva Original Universal Sandals
Resistance is futile; Dad sandals are comfy, affordable and on-trend and Teva’s are the original and best.
Black hiking-style velcro sandals, £39.99, Teva (office.co.uk)

With on-trend round lenses and an ultra-thin frame, these aviators make a stylish statement and look especially good on heart and square shaped faces.

Nannacay Astri macramé tote
Slightly more practical than the basket bag this macramé shoulder bag is the perfect size for all of your everyday essentials.

Wear it with a cross-body or bucket bag and either trainers or mules for a more elevated and feminine look for the weekend.
Mango Bow leather mules
Chunky heeled mules are the simplest way to elevate an outfit; they work with everything from jeans to statement dresses and are as comfy as heels get.

Puma Cali-0 Vintage Trainers
Back in the Eighties the Puma California trainer had a major style moment thanks to it’s laid-back West Coast style and this reimagined iteration ticks all of our boxes for the same reason. It’s the perfect way to dress down midi and maxi length skirts and dresses.
