Coast Mycah dress with petal detail on shoulders

The intricate folded petal detail of this dress from Coast first caught my eye way back in late 2012 (eagle-eyed visitors may have spotted a little close-up in a post from before Christmas). Now it's reduced in the summer sale, bringing the price under £100 for the first time (just).

This would be the perfect dress to wear to formal events in warm weather - the neckline and hemline are modest, it's a light summery shade (but not pure white, so you could get away with it at a wedding) but the detail gives it that extra edge, with no need for dramatic jewellery or extra accessories. Wear your hair up for the full effect - you want to show off those pink petals!
