How easy ladylike dressing seems: Throw on dress, attempt to fix your hair into shampoo advert worthy waves, always hang a handbag from one arm and never, ever even contemplate swapping your heels for flats. Though put a dainty foot wrong and you've strayed too far into the territory of footballers wives or found yourself on an English country estate using "mummy" without flinching. But Fendi, the Italian label known for unabashed extravagance, knows how to get it right.
With its neat peter pan collar and puffed sleeves this dress exaggerates all the stereotypes about prim and propper dressing. Fendi's dress, with its button down front and latticed sleeves in cream, looks as if it should appear on a little china doll. Miu Miu toys with this too with gingham earrings seemingly inspired by a cottage kitchen's table cloth.
These playful pieces have a hint of 50s housewife and a pinch of Mad Men, but the shapes and proportions make todays girl a very modern lady.
