If the past week has taught us anything, it's that the weather is still unpredictable, veering between warming sunshine and breezy grey days. While we can all hope for more of the former during the summer months, it would be foolhardy to think that the latter can be totally ruled out, which is why your wardrobe needs to be prepared. But it also needs to bring you joy, which is where Maje's new collection delivers like a dream.

It's called In The Mood For Sun, which seems like a good start. And it's full of ethereal maxi dresses, pretty cotton separates and floral prints in soft fabrics. While they all look lovely, they are also a gift from heaven for anyone as averse to ironing as I am. In fact, the more crinkled they are, the better they look – excellent news if you're planning a holiday and need crinkle-free items for your suitcase.

In fact, I would argue that Maje is one of the unsung sartorial heroes of the moment. If, like me, you're won over by pretty dresses that take all the hard work out of putting together an outfit, then you might agree. My first mention would have to be Maje's reinvention of the humble (and often a bit dowdy) shirt dress. Here, the shirt dress is anything but – instead it's realised in beautiful blue guipure lace, delicate organza in powdery pink or blue and styles with pleated skirts and a hint of cut-out detail at the back. There's also off-the-shoulder frocks destined for summer evenings, sunny yellow dresses ideal for weddings and printed minis embroidered with sequins.

So, while I can't promise you uninterrupted days of blazing sunshine, I can point you in Maje's direction, which may cheer you up at least. Even if it rains for the whole month of July (please God, no), at least you'll look good.
