Sometimes, in the world of fashion, describing something as 'nice' can a tad feel underwhelming - but in summer, that brand of effortless style is what I crave. We're constantly fed 'wow' designer pieces that stun as they march down the runway, but these are ideally suited to grand occasions and overlook the need to get by on a daily basis. Summer is definitely the season where I feel this the most. When it comes to owning a selection of nice summer dresses - the kind of impressively pretty styles you can throw on and go each day without a second thought - my wardrobe is bereft. The constant daily conundrums of how to dress down tailoring, or tone a seriously statement shirt can feel exhausting when all you want to do is get out of the house and enjoy the sun in clothes that are fit to do so. So you can imagine my sheer delight at finally finding the jackpot for carelessly cool summer styles, at a pricepoint that makes it possible to pimp out my wardrobe in one glorious whack. Enter: FatFace.
