The champion of femininity, fashion house Nina Ricci, did not disappoint with its ‘Parisian headed south’ inspired collection. This search for sunshine was articulated by the sunny yellow colour palette that shaded the designs, a technique we see implemented across the catwalk this season. Not for the shrinking violets, our selection of holiday dresses will help you shine like Mena Suvarie did when she arrived at the Versace AW13 show during Paris Fashion Week. Our top tip for pulling off this trend? Choose dresses with white, contrasting accents to mitigate against the potential harshness of the yellow.

Who doesn't love an excuse to go back to school and embrace the preppy style we never quite managed to perfect whilst there? Judging by Valentino’s Resort 2014 collection, we’re not the only ones! This eclectic mix of retro, school-girl inspired pieces is making us nostalgic for Peter Pan collars, clinched in waistlines and fabulous, flared skirts. Fortunately has a range to suit all of our sartorial fancies when it comes to preppy holiday dresses this summer ensuring that, like Olivia Palermo at the Valentino AW13 show, we score full marks with this fun and quirky trend.

Versace’s pops of delicate yet nonetheless striking colour break up the monotony of monochrome in the fashion house’s Resort 2014 collection. For dresses that look good enough to eat, embrace the punchy but simultaneously ladylike tones of bubble gum pink and turquoise this season. Wearing a two tone, turquoise, silk dress whilst out in Los Angeles, Leighton Meester exemplifies why designers are quickly falling head over heals with this delightfully delicious colour palette.
