I love linen, linen tops, dresses, trousers. It’s the perfect Summer fabric, and the perfect one to dress up or down. Recently I was invited by Monsoon to a summer’s lunch at Petersham Nurseries, and I chose to wear this dress. A black linen midi dress with sleeves above the elbows and lace tie detail on the waist. A dress which is so classic it’s one to be worn by any age, for any occasion.
Note I went up one size on it, I always find that Monsoon is somewhere you should go up a size or two to get give the clothes that relaxed edge. Also then pulling the ties on the waist in gives the dress a completely different look. I wore it with my clogs and wicker bag as I wanted to be a little dressier but cant wait to wear it with my trainers and a side bag. This is the dress that will sell out and people will continue to say to the ones who did grab it, ‘I cant believe I missed out on that one!’
