The sun is scheduled to make a brief appearance this week with temperatures rising. Here’s how to dress to make the most of it …

Break out the bohemian dress that’s been languishing at the back of your wardrobe the last few weeks. The more elaborate the print, the better. Pair with a woven bag and pared-back sandals.
A striped shirt is never not in style, but there’s something about the studied carelessness of it on warm days worn with languid linen trousers. Your jewellery should exude a similar polish – a delicate bracelet or gold chain makes for the perfect finishing touch.
Embrace a dramatic shoulder – whether it’s a puff sleeve or a lace trim, it’s the perfect way to style out summer. When it comes to accessories, a wide-brimmed sun hat lends a bucolic look to any outfit, should you need to fake like you’re in the lavender fields of Provence (when you’re very much in Dublin).
A pair of Bermuda style denim shorts is the perfect way to dip a toe back into warm weather dressing. Summery without flashing too much leg, these shorts are a perfect base for a frilled, romantic blouse, or an of the moment tank top. Layer a white shirt over the latter when you’re on the go or in the shade. Better yet, add a kitten heel for an unexpected sense of glamour.
Easy, chic, versatile: a striped maxi skirt says all the right things about summer dressing. Wear it with a statement waistcoat, or a simple white T-shirt also does the trick. Does it come with a co-ordinating top? If so, go the matching route – the last weeks of summer deserve a bona fide style statement!
