Voluminous, tiered, loose fit dresses with balloon sleeves are a massive trend. Aptly christened the buffet dress, due its ability to hide (lockdown) excesses, this is the kind of dress that is so wearable when #WFH but will also look great post-lockdown when styled with a belt and summer blazer. Plain or printed, midi-length a with a nod to the 70s, wear now with sneakers, Birkenstocks or hiking sandals and then layer up with jeans, roll necks and blazers. This summer, the chuck-on style buffet dress will be your BFF.
