Just coming into April we are starting to think about spring fashion. This Halter Neck Dress has a gathered bustier bodice and full, swinging bell skirt is reminiscent of film stars of the 50sā€™. It would make a perfect spring/summer dress for 2013. But how would you wear it? We want to know!

1. How about shopping at the local market in this Coolibar Wide Brim Hat and adorable brown Crosshatch Oxfords.

2. Spend the day at the beach in these Calvin Klein Sandals and stylish Furla Bag.

3. Or would you dress it up a little bit with this flashy Silver Cuff and sky high Steve Madden Wedges.

Which option is your style?

    I love that dress and for my look I would pick 1 item out of each option, the hat, sandals, bangle and choose a large tan bag. But this dress is very versatile and could be accessorised in a number of of ways.

    I like option 2 but not with a shocking pink bag. It is a bit much for me.

    Option 1 for me since I’m a hat and oxford kind of girl.

    I would wear option 1 to the beach. But I’d also have a light shawl/cardigan in one hand and a pink lemonade in the other hand.
