I exclusively wear dresses in summer so I already have my eye on loads. As ever, I’m loving the longer dresses to be worn everywhere, work, the pub, a nice sunset walk. They also keep me warmer when I’m in the pub gardens until the early hours of the morning. But I am partial to a mini dress for a night out. Catch me in all the dresses!
I live in dresses all Summer long – they just make for easy-going outfits you can throw on but still look like you’ve made an effort. I particularly love smocked prairie dresses or milkmaid style necklines and puff sleeves. Everything just gets a little bit more romantic in the summer and I always love wearing shapes that play up to that!
UGHHH I feel like I am in my prime with this trend in all honesty- a summer dress is truly my favourite kind of outfit and approaching the warmer weather is making me v v happy. I live for an oversized, smock or tiered dress and it seems like I’ve accidentally nailed a green/lime colour palette here- maybe it’s my colour for S/S21 and I didn’t even know it?! I especially love the Collusion number with the matching bandana for effortless, comfy yet very cool vibez.
My uniform come summer is pretty much a throw on dress, sandals and light jacket, it’s truly the easiest time of the year to get dressed! I usually end up going for light coloured (best for heat) minimal chic dresses that I can wear to the beach, to work, and to the pub. I also love this white wrap number with fun polka dots from the Never Fully Dressed curvy range, great for events although possibly not a wedding! And I recently discovered Violeta by Mango which is their plus-size range, most of the choices are quite plain but I think this blue ditsy print is so pretty and feminine.
Dresses are always the best in Summer, so easy to just throw on and head out the house. Paired with some sandals/trainers and a cute bag, you are good to go! I love a floral dress (shocking for Summer) with a bit of ruffle action going on. Very much a fan of tennis style outfits at the moment too, like white skorts, but also a big fan of tennis style dresses. Cami dresses are also very fun and go with almost anything, I really like this check print one from Motel!
