Look and feel like a Grecian goddess in this white chiffon one-shoulder gown. Notice the sweetheart neckline beneath the sheer fabric overlay which has a double-layered skirt that gently flares out from the fitted waistline. For a softer overall look, you could opt for the dress in a blush hue.

Sequined chiffon maxi dress, £850, Net-a-Porter


We love this Retrofete dress because it's embellished with scores of white light-catching sequins, creating a water-like appearance as soon as sunlight, moonlight and reflections from the ocean catch it. It is made from chiffon to ensure the lightest feel possible.
