This look is all about the cut and shape of the material. Keep everything else simple and let the clothes do the talking. This summer turn up the volume and wear it loud and wear it proud!

1. Floral dress, short and sweet and not a million miles away in style from Balenciaga’s spring/summer ’08 dresses!

2. This monochrome skirt is a deadringer for the Dolce and Gabbana one pictured above

3. This Black bubble hem dress is simple yet striking which is the essence of the New Volume trend.

And the really good news?

…They’re all from Warehouse’s Spring/Summer collection! They’ve not yet hit the shops but keep your eyes peeled because they are almost guaranteed to fly off the rails!
