It was fashion influencer Nicole Ocran that made me reconsider this, as a few weeks ago, I spotted her in a fab printed slip dress from—believe it or not—Oliver Bonas. Styling it with white toe-loop sandals and a white tee, I was impressed by how expensive it looked and made it my mission to investigate the brand’s summer collection.
Oliver Bonas’ stores don’t always offer a substantial clothing edit, but I found everything I needed online. From chunky sandals and on-trend sundresses to delicate jewellery and linen blouses, I lost count of the number of items I mentally favourited. While it’s not the most cutting-edge of collections, I couldn’t help but fall for the balance of timeless and universally flattering fits with the odd nod to S/S 19, be it a via print or sleeve shape.
All in all, this is summer dressing for those who like to keep it simple but still like to show that they know what’s going on in the new-season style stakes. Scroll down to see and shop my full Oliver Bonas edit.
