Any Tips for try Summer Dresses

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.
