Characterised by a figure-skimming cut and strappy neckline, this summer staple harks back to the minimalist styles championed by the likes of Rachel and Phoebe from Friends. It’s also one of those trends that tip-toe the line between fancy and casual, a factor that can be determined by both the fabric and the way in which you style it. This year’s iterations come either in textural cotton and linen fabrics or silken satins, but the great thing is that both can easily be grounded with chunky sandals or elevated with strappy heels.
One particular linen ASOS style (as seen on Naaomi Ross) saw serious success this June with its flattering mint-green shade and clean-lined silhouette. It might be close to selling out, but it’s also available in white—you can thank us later. Personally, I’ve been wearing a floral midi from Ghost on repeat this summer with my Birkenstocks and a chain necklace. It’s a serious wardrobe game changer. So if you want to inject some ’90s appeal into your summer wardrobe, scroll down to see and shop the trend.
