Summer is special, and your wardrobe should be too. Make the most of the sunshine in these stylish dresses, made from cotton that supports sustainable practices

Go for gingham

Synonymous with the 1950s, gingham is one of this summer’s best-loved prints. Dresses like this lace-trimmed maxi are a fun way to wear the pattern. And as it’s made from cotton that’s sustainably sourced, it will keep you cool without costing the earth. Offset the nostalgic vibes by styling it with a pair of box-fresh trainers and a colour-pop bag.

Put a tassel on it

If there’s one thing that can elevate a look to high-summer status, it’s a tassel or two. We love this embroidered cotton midi with tassels at the drawstring waist that swish when you walk. It’s perfect for a beach holiday but can also be made city-appropriate with sporty flatforms.

Broderie anglaise is big news

The name may mean ‘English embroidery’, but there’s a definite French charm to broderie anglaise. Think of it as summer’s alternative to delicate lace, perfect for warm-weather days in the city. With playful frills and soft chambray stripes, this tie-waist cotton midi dress is both girly and forgiving.
