The sun may not be shining as much as we'd like for this time of year but that's no reason to banish all summer shades from your party wardrobe. And whether you've got lots of cash to splash or are saving your pennies for a rainy day, Team LBD have got a bright and breezy, weather-appropriate look for one and all...

Ladies looking for a summer staple that will see you through (come rain or shine!) for years  and years should look no further than our exclusive BLESSUS collection. This vibrant yellow skater-style dress is flattering for all shapes and sizes and is a great day-to-night pieces. And if you appreciate the finer details in fashion you'll appreciate the pretty pleated skirt and Sports Luxe-inspired exposed zip at the reverse of this gorgeous dress. Keep your designer look hot on the heels of fashion's finest with Kat Maconie's Jane Shoes, £185, which will look great with everything but really make this yellow number pop. Kat Maconie shoes are renowned for their high quality and are loved by the likes of Jessie J, so you know you're getting the best with these sky-scrapers. Finish your look with Buba's Polestar Clutch, £336, to keep your look light.

If you're less optimistic about injecting some sunshine in to your wardrobe we'd recommend going for a more purse-friendly mustard hue, great for smaller budgets and autumn wardrobes! We love the girly pleats and wide straps which will flatter smaller chests. This Rise Fashion skater dress, £30, will look great in the office with a sharp, tailored jacket and even better come night time. Keep your look simple with these Just Anna Audrey Shoes, £139, and give a nod to spring's light leather trend with Juno's white leather studded clutch bag (a bargain at £20!)  and you're ready to go!
