Alice + Olivia Preena applique stretch cotton and tulle minidress, £610, net-a-porter.com. A witty yet ladylike piece.
Elizabeth and James India feather-trimmed crepe cotton mini dress, £400, net-a-poter.com. This is a fairy-tale warm-weather dress, accessorise with only the most sugary of pastels and the Ryan Storer two-finger ring (see below).
Junya Watanabe Faux-leather circle top, £875, Selfridges. The Japanese designer’s top has to be the most fun waterproof ever.
Junya Watanbe faux suede and organza top, £2,410 net-a-porter.com. This is out of stock and unlikely to be back in, but has to be included for the structural art of it. If you can find a similar top available, maybe for less money, snap it up. Your office won’t know what’s hit it when you waltz in wearing this.
Kenzo pique mini dress, £415, net-a-porter.com. Sport luxe for warm days.
Erdem Ama draped guipere lace skirt, £1,765, net-a-porter.com. This tropical, dramatic skirt shows guipere lace is a fabric to look out for this season.
Burberry Prorsum dip-dyed lace skirt, £695, net-a-porter.com. Pretty.
Ryan Storer rose gold-plated Swarovski pearl two-finger ring, £140, net-a-porter.com.
Anya Hindmarch printed twill-silk scarf, £250, net-a-porter.com.
Burberry Prorsum cropped suede jacket with patent leather panels, £2595, net-a-porter.com. A directional statement piece in candy suede.

Marni draped printed silk-crepe top, £650, net-a-porter.com. The bold iris print and asymmetric draping mean this top could be paired with jeans and sandals and still provide instant chic on a relaxed spring city break.
Peter Pilotto “Haze” draped jersey and silk-chiffon mix dress £1,680, net-a-porter.com. This Summer of Love-inspired dress has an artistic feel.
