For Martina Bonnier, having fun in a dress is essential. The flow of a skirt or the way a silhouette hugs the body should (even if worn on your bog-standard Monday) create a sensation of celebration. A joie de vivre of sorts. As such, "it shouldn't be too basic," Bonnier notes. An easy way to elevate your ensemble is to look for playful design details. "I like colour. Colour will always create a joyful vibe," she says on curating the below selection of summer dresses, a line-up which exudes exuberance and embraces uninhibited individual flair.
Bonnier's top picks span floor-light gowns and cropped mini dresses that blend timeless elegance with contemporary allure, highlighted by design details such as sculpted busts, high-low hemlines and floral 3D appliqués. The versatile selection returns to her previous point: fashion should be fun. "Don't stick with just one aesthetic," Bonnier encourages. Instead, try to explore a multitude of styles. "Don't be afraid of trying both body-hugging, sexy dresses and then changing into romantic floral gowns the next day," she concludes.
This summer, versatility is the key, allowing you to express different sides of your personality through fashion. So, as the sun embraces the season, explore Martina Bonnier's selection of summer dresses to invest in now and immerse yourself in the joy of dressing up.
