                                              Stand out from the crowd in this ultra-flattering shirt dress. It can be cinched at the waist with a tie belt for a feminine shape, while gold buttons and contrast details on the neckline and cuffs add a sophisticated touch. But the real head-turner is that vibrant retro print.

                                                  Based on our much-loved Riviera dress, this top combines an ultra-flattering shape with a touch of Fifties glamour. The demure V-neckline and cinched waist look elegant, while the cotton-linen mix makes it luxuriously soft. Wear it in the Riviera with a floppy hat (or simply slip it on for brunch).
