Just about everything designer Erdem Moralioglu touches turns out to be a remarkable piece of art and the same can be said of this white and blue cotton dress. The dress seems to be cut from a painting that merges floral and scrollwork prints and the dashes of yellow add edginess to the otherwise lady-like shape.

This Erdem dress is equal parts conservative and interesting – ideal to meet your man’s parents in. Win them over by playing up the femininity of the dress with ballet flats and a top-handle bag.
