A comfy, influencer-approved dress in soft, breathable fabric

Summer’s on the way – finally! – and our thoughts are turning towards hot, sunshine-fuelled days in natural, lightweight fabrics. Linen is a great choice, with moisture-wicking properties to keep you cool and strong sustainability credentials. A stylish linen maxi dress, as seen on Instagram favourite Fatma Husam, is perfect for high temperatures. “Love this cream linen dress, so comfy and breathable for the heat” she says. Team with trainers, like Fatma, for a laidback look, or add a chic pair of sandals – leather sliders are an excellent choice.
