                                            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).
