Summer calls for a sundress; that loose lightweight frock that lies idle in your wardrobe for most of the year, but is utterly irreplaceable on a sizzling hot day. Throw it on and you're dressed, job done.

The Marc by Marc Jacbos collection this season is chock-full of nifty little numbers, from tangerine, full-skirted, halter-necks to this '70s-inspired, stripy silk version.

Teamed with a Cloche straw hat, chunky bangles, Converse-inspired wedges and a slick of vermilion on the lips, it wouldn't be Marc without the signature accessorising.

And if there's a nip in the air, this dress was also styled for the show with a marl-grey, loose-jersey sweatshirt worn over, of which Topshop have plenty to choose from. Street chic has never been so easy.
