A dress is probably the most versatile item of clothing you can have in your wardrobe and to make sure you’re making the most of it, we’re here to show you how to style a dress in different ways.  

Transforming any basic dress is all about switching up your accessories, shoes and playing with extra layers. Since there’s no denying that a little black dress is a wardrobe staple, we’ve picked out our black halter neck swing dress from Perrie Sian’s latest collection, that can be worn for pretty much any occasion.

This flowy summer dress can effortlessly go from city casual to date night glam with the right accessories. Read on for our styling tips on 5 ways to wear 1 dress. 


To the beach 

Off to the beach? This lightweight summer dress makes the perfect effortless cover up you can throw on over your bikini or swimsuit. Pair it with some slip-on sandals, a beach bag and your favourite sunglasses and you’re ready to get your tan on.

City break exploring 

For exploring the city, the most important thing is that you’re comfortable since you’ll most likely be walking a lot. Style this dress with a pair of chunky flatform sandals with a white oversized shirt as a light layer for your sightseeing day. Choose to tie up the shirt or wear it open for a cute casual outfit.
