If there’s one time in the year when a girl can really let herself go—it’s on a hot summer holiday evening, And what better clothes to let yourself go in than these? Be a bit flamboyant with your fabrics, now’s the time for chiffon and clinging velvet and the styles that only need a suntan for company!

All sorts of things are getting the tie and dye treatment this summer – and we bet it will colour our autumn too! It’s easy to tie-dye jeans and t-shirts, just tie a knot anywhere, grab a packet of dye, and you’re away! But the experts have been getting at everything so you can buy it already dyed – summer colour has hit jersey, velvet and gaberdine to. So get dyeing!
