WEAR IT YOUR WAY:
DRESS TO IMPRESS

From classic shirt dresses to cute slips, these printed summer styles will take you from desk to deckchair

Get shirty

Practical and flattering, the shirt dress will never go out of style. This season’s update features an on-trend floral print and a figure-skimming design that’s super comfy in warm weather. On cooler days, team with another style staple, the denim jacket. Finish the look with a pair of showstopper earrings.

In the detail

From micro-florals to polka dots, ditzy prints are all the rage this summer, and they’re perfect for a fabulously feminine dress like this cute sleeveless number. The ruched fabric cinches your waist, while the skirt length is just long enough to show off your legs without feeling too revealing. Add a cross-body bag and flat sandals for brilliant city-slicking summer style.

No slip-ups

The slip dress has enjoyed a fashion revival of late, from plain, silky numbers to bold and beautiful takes, such as this vibrant patterned style. Layer one over a fitted T-shirt to up the sartorial stakes, or simply pop on over your bikini at the beach for truly easy holiday wear.

Go for bold

If you can’t experiment with eye-catching pattern during the summer, when can you? Now is the time to embrace showstopping prints, such as this striking floral dress, again in our favourite shirt dress shape. It’s the ideal dress-up-or-down piece, just as fabulous with heels and a clutch for a summer party as it will be with trainers and a biker jacket when you hit the shops.
