Online shopping hotspot My-Wardrobe has collaborated with British designer Tabitha Webb to create a gorgeous summer dress to raise funds for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the flagship fashion campaign of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, with 30% of profits going directly to the charity. This is your chance to help raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause as well as investing in a beautiful statement frock.
Celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Georgia May Jagger and Kylie Minogue have all joined forces with renowned photographers such as Mario Testino, Simon Emmett and Ellen Von Unwerth to show their support for the charity so now it is your turn. Continuing to unite the British public by making people aware of Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s lifesaving work will help raise vital funds and change lives.
The exclusive My-Wardrobe Sundance dress is perfect for garden parties, weddings and other events this season as it is crafted from a delicate pale pink silk with a lovely wild cherry blossom print. The garment is cut in one of Tabitha Webb’s renowned hourglass silhouettes which is a flattering shape for all women. Detailing is subtle yet beautiful and comes in the form of feminine white lace inserts, complimenting the demure pastel like hue of the dress. The design of the frock is also timeless and fits in with this season’s trends for Laduree inspired colours and Oriental prints.
A collaboration for a worthy cause like this needs to be spoken about and shared so why not add the exquisite Sundance dress to your summer wardrobe for understated feminine luxury and help raise funds for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The on-trend frock will be your go-to outfit for special events this season so wear it with pride and give it a personal edge with your favourite summer accessories.

If summer is anything like the bank holiday Monday we just had then I can imagine quite a few Brits will be hitting the coast to top up their tans over the next few months. You could even be in the process of planning a holiday abroad for guaranteed sun and white sandy beaches so may feel like updating your summer wardrobe just a tad.
Over the past couple of months I haven’t been completely wowed by Topshop as nothing was really standing out for me. But since coming across the new range of beach and holiday pieces I am once again smitten with the high street brand and am reminded why it is one of my favourite shopping hotspots. Just looking at the latest additions of on-trend clothing, accessories and shoes gets me ever so excited for summer. Trust me; you’ll need an excuse to flaunt this gorgeous collection!
The Palm Springs range is everything you could possibly want for your holiday wardrobe as it is filled with exotic bold prints such as banana leaves, animals, safari, Aztec and floral as well as zingy vibrant and fresh shades for clashing fashion forward dressing. Just think of all of this season’s hottest trends rolled up into one in-demand range.
Each item will help bring a little fun to your summer style as they have been made to turn heads – it’s all about the strut and the sass. Cute tops and shorts as well as playful dresses will make for great daywear whilst the bodycon dress, tapered trousers and skirts will continue the colourful vibe into the evening. Rock a pair of timeless style sandals that have been amped up with metal details, jewels and flashes of neon then say hello to statement jewellery; a spike ring or African inspired collar will do the trick.

A maxi skirt opens up more outfit possibilities and is a good alternative for women who don’t necessarily like to flash too much skin. Team with your favourite cami top for subtle daytime sexiness or use it as a bikini cover-up as you stroll across white sandy beaches looking like a sun Goddess. River Island’s architectural monochrome number will bring your wardrobe up-to-date in an instant as well as create superb illusions whilst the soft ombre finish and leopard print design of the split leg maxi skirt results in a striking effect for perfect statement dressing.

Take your style to new lengths this season by introducing a trusty maxi skirt or dress into your life – you’ll regret it if you don’t!
First there was monochrome, then came the white-out. Popular high street shopping destination French Connection has brought out a capsule collection for summer aptly named White Lies. This serene range of sophisticated tailored separates nods to the ‘all things white’ trend which was spotted on the designer catwalks giving fashionistas a break from hectic prints and vibrant hues.
We associate white with a sense of purity and calm so giving your wardrobe a new season detox will not only clear your mind but your wardrobe too. This is a huge colour trend for summer 2013 and if you think this is a straightforward style then think again! Valentino, Simone Rocha and Stella McCartney opted for broderie anglaise and pretty filigree fabrics whilst Prada and Celine went for clean precise origami folds.
Eye spy with my little eye something beginning with S; sun! It looks like we’ll be getting a well deserved summer after all which is a relief to women who have been waiting to leave the house with bare legs and cover-up free. Weather like this will put anyone in a good mood but why not go one step further and be summer wardrobe ready?!
Women are continuing to be spoilt with new season arrivals that have been made for pedicured toes and flashes of skin. It might seem slightly strange at first dressing for work or a day out with friends and not having to layer up to brave the cold but this is what we’ve been waiting for. Treat yourself to a pair of stupendous sandals, flowing dress and head to the beauty salon so you are looking fabulous from head to toe.
Whether you’re a colour fanatic, minimalistic muse or print lover don’t despair as all of your favourite shopping hotspots have included a vast range of trends and styles for you to choose from to help kick start the summer season. Every woman needs a gorgeous statement bag to take to special events during the warmer months and it would seem luxury brand Wilbur & Gussie has heard our fashion pleas.
