Here’s how to make this gingham summer dress work five ways

Despite every fashion lover's wardrobe being jam packed with bundles of clothes, it's always our tried and trusted ensembles we tend to stick to.

It's easy to put together different looks using the same piece of clothing, by adding different accessories

Time and time again we find ourselves pulling together our favourite jeans, pairing them with our comfiest shoes and whenever there's an elaborate occasion, it's always that trusty little black dress we reach for.

But with versatile pieces of clothing, like this gingham dress with on-trend bell sleeves and peplum cut, it's easy to put together different looks using the same piece of clothing by adding different accessories. 

Whether it's a hat, different shoes or throwing over a jacket, we've put together five different looks for five different occasions using the same dress. Happy styling!

How to wear it to work

Add a stylish option to your layering with this blazer. Finished with zips and a fitted waist we're sure it will quickly become your busy morning go-to. Pair your look with some loafers, a pair of flats or some small boot heels and you'll be ready to seize the day!

How to wear it to a party

You'll steal the spotlight and look the belle of the ball if you pair your gingham dress with some 'barely-there' block sandal heels and a little black bag. 

How to wear it to dinner and drinks

With the lighter and warmer evenings, heeled ankle boots are the perfect shoes to take you from day to night. You can walk tall knowing that this faux leather pair look fabulous as they’re timeless and versatile enough to go with almost anything in your wardrobe. And to help keep you warm, add some biker-style glam with our gorgeous quilted biker jacket.

How to wear it to the shops

In the past trainers were usually only worn by the sporty types and gym bunnies. But fast forward a couple years and they've become our new favourite go-to shoe. They're comfortable, stylish and look great matched with a dress.

How to wear it on holiday

Nothing says you're on holiday until you've got your favourite sun hat on and some sandals. To rock this look, pair your gingham dress with some espadrilles or metallic sandals and a big beach hat too. Even if you wear this outfit when the sun decides to shine in England, you'll feel like you're in sunny Sardinia in no time.
