BurdaStyle stitchers love their dresses and we’re sure you’ll find a new favourite in the Coconut Grove Collection. From the breezy maxi dress to figure hugging styles, there’s something for boho beach goddesses and boardwalk vixens!
You’ll be ready to hit the beach in this lovely summer collection, and it’ll really put you in the holiday mood. Try a figure-hugging style like the Portrait Neck Mini Dress or Iris Dress for the evening, or slip into the Maxi Dress With Pockets for a day running errands and sipping lemonade. Bright, floral and even neon prints work well for this collection, so don’t be afraid to be bold!
The Editor’s Pick from this collection is the Tunic With Button Placket pattern. This tunic has a full-length hidden button placket for a little more structure and is fitted with a seam at the bust and slits at the hip and sleeves. It’s a really sleek piece to wear with shorts and sandals for the summer, but it can be dressed up for a night out too.
