High Summer at Dorothy Perkins embraces three key looks - monochrome day and eveningwear with pops of colour, neon bright beachwear, and soft and pretty occasionwear.

The monochrome trend gets an update with accents of lime green and bold tribal prints. Clean white pieces are bejewelled with embellishment and teamed with simple denim shorts for a casual beach look. Floaty maxi dresses in eye-catching prints are key for taking you from beach to bar and monochrome prints are striking on both billowing blouses and snug body-con dresses.

Swimwear is awash with colour with bold prints and patterns set against blocks of bright colour. Neon and navajo trends combine to create the stand-out feather print swimsuit while the eighties makes a bold comeback with a daring retro print two piece. Kaftans make for the perfect beach cover up - make a statement in the vibrant printed kaftan with tassel detail or choose the sheer floor-length maxi for a glam evening look.

For occasionwear it's all things pretty, with soft pastels, embroidery and delicate prints. Pastel pinks and corals are mixed with powder blue stripes and china pottery prints. Girly prom dresses are heavily embellished and pretty skirts in soft hues are teamed with light cotton tees and shirts. Floral appliqué detailing is key, making its mark on evening tops, skirts and dresses while bright whites lift the collection making it feel fresh.
