One of fashion’s most beloved fabrics – especially when worn as a white sundress – lace looks dreamy on every level. Team your lace dress with straw accessories, from a bag to a sunhat, and you'll ooze summer romance.

Bring colour into your wardrobe with a pop of red. For a statement-making look, opt for a lacy top – fabrics that you can see through to the skin are having a major moment in fashion – or for a more subtle nod to this romantic hue, bring it into your ensemble on a smaller scale whether in a printed detail or on a pair of sandals.

Frilly and delicate, ruffles are the perfect detail on that summer jumpsuit. Welcome the warmer weather in a chic one-piece that’s also a functional choice for cooler summer evenings. Pair with open-toe wedges for an ultra feminine look.

Incorporating pleats into your wardrobe is a no-brainer when it comes to adding a little romance. A pleated skirt is not only versatile but it makes a great trans-seasonal investment piece.

If you prefer an edgier look opt for a floral dress in black. Adding even a small touch of floral to your outfit will lend it a certain feminine appeal. Jane Austen would be proud.
