Nothing says summer quite like a floaty dress, and Hannah Waddingham's latest look has us sold on halter neck styles for this season.

Warm weather has finally appeared and we're getting our summer capsule wardrobe ready for some proper outings. If you're looking for some smart-casual style inspiration, look no further than Hannah Waddingham's stellar dress on the grid at Silverstone.

The award-winning actress has been confirmed to sing the national anthem at the Formula 1 British Grand Prix on Sunday the 7th of July, and she has already been warming up track-side with yet another gorgeous ensemble. If you're just as inspired by her look as we are, we've found some similar looks to invest in and wear all summer long.

Shop stylish halter dresses

A halter neckline is endlessly flattering, working to draw the eye upwards and give floatier silhouettes a more balanced finish. And with statement dresses like these, neutral accessories are all that you need. Hannah finished off her look with a pair of sleek black espadrilles and some oversized sunglasses that are perfect for any holiday wardrobe.

We've found some similar Castañer wedges at Farfetch, and these affordable Le Specs glasses from Selfridges are the perfect balance of statement and subtle that Hannah would surely approve of.

If you want to make your patterned dress more wearable for every day, try styling it with a pair of the best white trainers and a light wash denim jacket. Or, kill two birds with one stone by making it your vacation go-to and one of the best wedding guest dresses. Finish the formal ensemble with a light cardigan and some chunky heels.
