Summer dresses are the perfect go-to when you’re not sure what to wear, they’re easy to slip on and head out the door; here are six summer dresses you need in your wardrobe this season.

Dresses are easy to wear and style item we should all have in our wardrobe for days at the office or weekends running errands, shopping or socialising. Slip them over your head and you’re good to go, and that means extra time in bed – something we’re definitely a fan of.

6 summer dresses you need in your wardrobe 

Shirt dress

Shirt dresses are an essential item in summer, and they’re the perfect work dress too - especially in crisp cotton for the hot summer wear.

The shirt dress will easily become a prime point in your summer work wardrobe all thanks to its power of making you look instantly polished.

Floral dress

You can’t see summer through without wearing something floral, and the floral dress is the perfect summer style. Keep your flower power modern and not mumsy by pairing it with a denim or leather jacket.

And don’t be scared to clash your floral prints too, whether with more floral or different prints. Add an oversized blazer for a boyish spin on the look.

Denim dress

The timeless fabric will you through summer after summer, we do prefer the darker shades like seen at Chloe, but don’t discount the artfully faded pieces either.

What’s great about denim dresses? You can add heels for a more sophisticated look or a pair of white sneakers for something a lot more comfortable and wearable day-to-day.

Slip dress

Slip dresses are great dressed up for the evening with strappy heels or dressed down for the day worn over a t-shirt and paired with sneakers.


Bardot dress

Bardot dresses are great for both evening and day wear, dress them up easily with wedges and heels, or wear them in the day with Converse or sandals.

The great thing about these pieces is that you're left with no shoulder strap marks.

Maxi dress

Summer’s go-to dress length will see you through parties, weekends and work and there’s plenty of different styles to ensure there’s something for everyone.
