WHETHER it’s notice me prints, funky florals or ethnic embellishments, Dorothy Perkins has all you need for a stylish, summer wardrobe. The fashion chain’s high summer collection features bold print dresses, floral frocks, denim jackets, cropped jeans, maxi dresses and khaki trousers.

Trousers are making a comeback this season, ranging from Ibizian harems and classic chinos, to sexy printed jumpsuits. The taupe skinny combat with the utilitarian side pocket and cropped leg is a summer essential and will see you through to the cooler months of autumn. Modernise the look by teaming with an embellished cami and essential peep-toe ankle boot.

Cool, crisp cotton tops and maxi dresses are given a new lease of life with vivacious paisley and ikat prints. Team these enriching ethnic patterns with denim and embellished gladiators for the perfect beach to bar wear. If you like the look of the new Dorothy Perkins collection, then head to the store in Eldon Square, Newcastle, on Thursday, May 13.

Shoppers at the Fashion Thursday event, in conjunction with Look magazine, will receive an amazing 20% discount off all the new summer collections and, if that’s not enough, all customers who spend more than £40 will receive a fantastic goody bag filled with a host of treats to see you through the summer months (until stocks last). Perkins’ savvy style advisors will be in store to help solve all your fashion dilemmas.

The store will ensure that not only will you leave with a fantastic new summer wardrobe, you’ll feel truly pampered. Complimentary makeovers from The Body Shop will be available throughout the evening and staff from Toni and Guy will be on hand to breathe a bit of life into your hair.

The event is being held from 3pm-9pm with free refreshments and the cool sounds of a DJ to help you shop.
