With the warmer weather finally here, we’ve been eyeing up our favourite summer dresses to see us through the season. From colourful abstract and floral prints to dramatic colour blocking to pretty pastels, we’ve got the hottest summer trends sewn up in our fashion team’s edit.
The wonderful thing about summer dresses is that they’re so versatile, which means that whatever your body shape or style, you’ll be able to find something that suits. Hate showing your arms? No problem, just opt for a flattering long sleeved summer dress instead. Or if you consider your legs to be your biggest trouble area, then we’ve got plenty of styles that will help you cover up your pins.
If you’re lucky enough to be blessed with an hourglass figure, then you’ll look fantastic in tailored dresses that show off your curves. Got more of an apple body shape? Opt for a classic, wearable shift in a geometric print, like this tunic dress from La Redoute, £59. Meanwhile women with pear shapes should draw attention to their top halves with a detailed top number. Tall and slim? Show off your height with a floral dress.
Perfect for any occasion, you can dress your summer frock up with a pair of heels and some sparkling accessories for a night on the town or keep it casual with sandal flats and a stylish hat for holiday comfort. Or make your summer dress work for the office by pairing it with our favourite summer sandals. A flattering summer dress is this season’s ultimate must-have buy as you’ll be able to wear it again and again. Click through for even more must-haves for summer days
This stripe shift dress from Hobbs works for almost every occasion – from afternoon picnics to formal barbecues and more. Add wedges and a denim jacket to keep it casual, or heeled sandals and a cross-body bag to dress it up.
The ultimate summer dress comes in the form of this beautiful floaty style from LK Bennett. A perfect length to suit all, and with a waist-skimming sillhouette and floaty angel sleeves, just add simple strappy heels and a clutch to wow at any occasion.
We may have found the perfect versatile occasion dress in the form of this lilac lace shift from Reiss. Perfectly on-trend for the season ahead, you’re guaranteed to stand out if you’re wearing this. Pair with metallic accessories to finish the look.
A dress with sleeves is one of the most versatile buys for any woman. Opt for a style that’s not too fitted in a premium material (this one’s silk), and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a timeless fashion buy. We love the summery Boho pattern on this offering.
