Whether you’re heading to a family party, catching up over brunch or dancing the night away at a festival, we have the best summer dresses to see you through summer in style

The broderie dress

Pretty broderie anglaise is one of this summer’s biggest trends, tapping into the current obsession with hyper femininity after months spent dressing down in loungewear. Make a bolder statement by choosing a broderie dress in striking hot pink. With three-quarter-length sleeves and a flattering tie-waist, it could be your new best friend to carry you through this summer’s social whirl. Simply switch up your accessories to suit the occasion. Go for a sporty sandal and macramé bag for a dressed-down barbecue or elevate your summer dress outfit with luxe metallics if you’re heading somewhere a little fancier.

The shirred midi dress 

If you’ve spent the winter dreaming of sunny days and warm, sultry evenings spent with your favourite people, the wait is finally over. Your diary might be the busiest it’s been for a while, so invest in an ultra-feminine midi dress to make every outing an occasion. Nostalgic detailing such as the puff sleeves and tiered skirt tick all this season’s style boxes, and the stretchy, shirred bodice makes it super wearable. Heading off to a festival? Getting your summer dress outfit on point is a tricky balance as there’s always got to be a nod to practicality, too. Toughen up by adding a camo-print jacket and team with pared-back accessories to keep on the right side of twee.

The tiered maxi

Keep your cool with a sweet, tiered maxi dress – ideal for lazy summer days. A must-pack for vacations, this floaty, low-maintenance style is perfect for throwing on when the mercury soars and is just so easy to wear. The ditsy floral print will keep you feeling fresh as a daisy, while the tiered detail and maxi length effortlessly channels this season’s early noughties bohemian vibe. Just add low-key flat sandals and a roomy straw bag and you’re pretty much ready for anything – from a fun-filled day by the sea to a picnic in the park with friends.
