Lauren Kate Design Co The Abby Dress
“Gingham dresses are a fashion failsafe and these hand-shirred styles are a winner,” says Stylist’s style director Polly Knight. And, because Lauren Kate Design’s Abby midi-dress is made to order, you can choose whether you want straps, cap sleeves or long sleeves, a choice of black or pale pink gingham, plus the elasticated sleeves mean you can switch between a square or strapless neckline. Oh, and they’re also available in sizes 6-22. Basically, it’s the dress of dreams.
“Wear now with trainers and have a cardi ready to throw over your shoulders in the evening,” suggests Polly, “then come late autumn/winter add more layers with a jersey roll-neck worn underneath, chunky socks and stomping boots. It will soon be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe.”

Juxtaposing organic nature with a splash of decadence, this set of three gold-tipped oyster shell candles is just what the interior doctor ordered,” says The Drop’s editor Gemma Crisp.
Made with oyster shells that have been individually collected from the River Blackwater in Essex, Jasmine Alice Home’s eco soy wax candles will instantly add a luxury seaside vibe to your living room. Finished with a subtle rim of gold glaze, they’ll shimmer from every shelf or coffee table you place them on.

Le Colonel Liberty Cotton Pyjama Shorts
When you think of chic floral prints, there’s no doubt Liberty’s iconic designs spring to mind. Dresses, bags, pillowcases, you name it – swathe it in a Liberty print and the appeal automatically quadruples. So, it’s no wonder we’ve brought back the bestselling Liberty lounge shorts from French atelier Le Colonel in two new prints, with an exclusive £5 saving only available on The Drop.
Handmade in Le Colonel’s Lille studio, the French touch naturally adds elegance to the classic pyjama short silhouette with a soft silk bow and micro side slit without compromising on comfort thanks to the elasticated waist.
Perfect for those nights that alternate between hot and cold, this lightweight piece is one that looks so stylish it’ll be difficult to part with in the morning.

The Big Silk Silk Heatless Curler Set
“You can’t move for heatless curling hacks on TikTok right now, but rather than repurposing your dressing gown belt and leaving yourself chilly, invest in this silk curl kit instead,” advises Stylist contributor Shannon Peter . “The smooth fibres of the high-quality silk won’t ruffle the hair cuticles, ensuring that the curls you wake up with will be softer than ever.”
Available in pale pink or black, each kit comes with a patented silk styling wand, silk scrunchie, two creaseless clips, and a bristle hairbrush. Together, this dream team creates old Hollywood-style curls with no damage, breakage or tangles.
All you need to do is wrap sections of your damp hair around the styling wand, secure with scrunchies and clips, and wait for your curls to take shape overnight. The next morning, release to reveal a bouncy final result. Morning hair has never looked so good…

If you’ve been following the rise and rise of Y2K fashion, and the ensuing popularity of jewellery trends that would have delighted our 12-year-old selves, you’ll already know that colourful beaded bracelets are back, and big news this summer.
And according to Jack & Freda designer and founder Kylie Dunn, retro jewellery is best reimagined with a luxe twist. That’s why her unique take on the playful beaded bracelets is made from all-natural stone and shells, mother of pearl and colourful polymer clay.
Available in an array of vivid shades with an array of rainbow beads interspersed along the length of the bracelet, we’ll be combining them with our existing gold wrist stack for a summery multi-coloured display.
