Styling summer holidays with a sensational dress just got more fun! The so-called Amber list countries travel restriction of quarantine is being kicked into the long grass from 19 July (it’s a good day for football analogies). Vaccination and testing requirements still stand. It comes just as there are plenty of offers on Dolce and Gabbana dresses (and other designers) if you know where to look. The selection available at A Good Frock is small but mighty with periodic updates to stock.

Be Summery, Be Casual, But Be Sensational

Be summery, be casual, be sensational is a good wardrobe mantra for holidays. There’s no doubt in my mind you’ll want your vacation dressing to be fuss free. Simplicity is the thing. You don’t want to have to think about it too much. But you still want to be looking your best. Effortless style is the thing to aim for. Whether you are heading for the beach or the mountains or a city break, there should always be room for at least one great dress for evening: For dinners, for relaxing evening walks and for visiting local bars. If I was the one packing for a summer holiday, I would take two dresses: One for daywear and one more suited to evening wear. You might find a dress that can do both, but it’s good to travel with options. I have more to say on what to take on holiday.

Styling Summer Holidays with a Sensational Dress

Styling summer holidays with a sensational dress or two makes sense. Nothing else you can wear makes you feel more like a woman. And you’ll look the part. It’s an opportune time to wear jazzy prints and bold colours but of course you are not restricted to these. Just that brighter dresses can look out of place in the UK’s grey light. In the UK they can work best for evening wear. On holiday where the light will no doubt have a blue cast, really anything goes. It’s no coincidence Dolce and Gabbana’s Sicilian inspired collections always feature some bold prints and colours. For evening wear, of course, you can’t go wrong with black but it really does not suit everyone and there’s no reason to restrict yourself to colours you would wear at home. So, a good mantra to have is ‘go hard or go home’.

Grab a Bargain Designer Dress While You Can

Grab a bargain designer dress while you can. It’s not too late to make a holiday dress purchase. If buying a designer dress, there are lots of deals around. A Good Frock stocks New, Second-hand and Vintage dresses. My new dresses are typically not from current collections. If you like a dress I encourage you to get in touch with me so I can give you accurate measurements to avoid disappointment. I am happy to answer any and all questions. Styling summer holidays with a sensational dress has never been so easy!
