A hot topic of discussion in the Bravissimo office today, which came about because of the beautiful weather we have been having, was, ‘What exactly do us Bravissimo girls wear to work or to do the school run, in this kind of heat?’ Shorts are a tricky option, sometimes best left for boy scouts or footballers, maxi dresses are great for the beach or a summer party but can be impractical for driving or getting on and off trains, and trousers – too hot! The best option is a really easy-to-wear dress, which can be dressed up or down with a smart linen blazer or colourful cardi. And the humble dress can be accessorised in a whole host of ways, changing the look entirely.
Pepperberry, (Bravissimo’s new clothing label), has some great dresses that would definitely fit the bill. Pepperberry’s range is designed with your boobs in mind, so no more having to buy two dress sizes too big just to fit your boobs! The very easy-to wear, Ditsy Floral Dress is a great little tea dress and to go from day to night, if your having drinks after work, you could wear with leggings, ballets flats and a denim jacket (check out Pepperberry’s Stretch Denim Blazer).
One of Pepperberry’s new arrivals is the Ikat Print Dress, it’s a light cotton dress in a warm ethnic print, and the clever part is the tabs on the straps that attach to your bra. Try accessorising with Bravissimo’s Wooden Necklace and Bracelet for daytime and to glam up for a night out, accessorise with the Chain Necklace and Gold Cuff.
If you are after a very wearable jersey dress then the new Mint Swirl Dress, in a tropical floral print, could be your summer staple and it will stay looking fabulous all day long. You can accessorise with the Glass Bead Bracelet and Glass Bead Necklace in colbalt and for a cover up when it gets a bit cooler, the Deep Rib Cardigan in magenta. Also new from Pepperberry makes a great contrast with the blues of the dress, grab the lovely Tassel Slouch Bag in coral to finish off the look.
