This gorgeous €20 Zara dress features one of our favourite trends right now

One you'll wear every day of summer.

If, like us, you grew up through the 90s and early 2000s, you probably thought that you’d never live to see the milkmaid top make a comeback.

Well, you thought wrong.

Tops and dresses in this style are back with such a vengeance that you could easily mistake the inside of any clothes shop right now for a teenage disco circa 2004.

But no – it’s 2019 and structured necklines and puffy sleeves are massive once again.

There’s an old maxim that says if you’re old enough to remember a trend the first time around, you shouldn’t wear it when it comes back years later.

It’s an adage that we don’t really subscribe to – if you were to follow this, you’d probably never buy jewelled hair clips, boiler suits, chunky runners or any of the other fun trends that are in right now – so why not hop on the milkmaid bandwagon?

This shape, with its emphasis on your décolletage, is surprisingly flattering and adds an extra girly flair to a look.

We especially love it on a ditsy sundress, like this one from Zara.

It’s modest but not prudish, feminine without being cloying and only €19.99.

Wear with anything all summer long and make sure to get a photo of your décolletage looking mighty in it.
