French label Carven is one of the hottest labels around at the moment. Cheeky, achingly cool and yet still beautifully chic; the current collection is choc-full of leggy looks, including skater-skirt dresses and high-waisted shorts.

Originally a couture label established in 1945, the brand was reinvented in 2009 to appeal to a new, younger audience. Since then, it has taken flight and has a diverse celebrity following, including everyone from Leighton Meester and Gwyneth Paltrow to Beyoncé.

Worn by Lily Collins in Vogue, this brightly coloured, zig-zag print dress is a real signature piece. River Island has done a splendid job of paying homage with this sleeveless dress. Simply layer over Topshop's lattice shirt to achieve the textured contrast sleeve look and finish with a pair of Toms.
