Dorothy Perkins Spring Summer 2010

What better way to top off that sun-kissed skin than the latest Spring/Summer 2010 collection by Dorothy Perkins? Inspired by preppy style and soft femininity, designs are given a modern edge and enhanced by statement-making accessories like the pearl glam wrist wear.

Jacket is the key for spring designs such as the vintage and the chiffon corsage jackets while summer designs are influenced by ethnic looks of Bali and Tahiti; using nude tones together with romantic fabrics such as laces and broderie anglaise. Let your heart bloom wrapped up in playsuits, culottes and pretty dresses printed with cute clean ditsies or embellished with sequins and pearls.

Work that boot! Flaunt your beautiful legs in tights and ankle boots earlier this season, then flippy culottes or city shorts with gladiator sandals as the temperature rises. Check out the heeled peep-toe ankle boots and flat worker style lace-up boots, not forgetting the studded court shoes as well as the platform Mary-Janes; these are must-haves! Girls, time to visit the waxing salon.

Kudos for bringing preppy back into vogue!

In line with the Spring/Summer Collection 2010, DP collection is back with its second season; Boudoir. This lingerie inspired look blends in delicate laces, intricate embroidery and feminine bow details with unstructured tailoring together with soft sorbet tones to complement the strong base palette of black, ivory and charcoal grey.
