As you can see I have been putting my time in the sunshine to good use by trying on some of our more summery dresses for you.
I have chosen ones that work for hotter days where you want to expose your arms, look feminine and stay cool.
I hope you love them as much as I do!
Wonderfully loose and liberating, this fine cotton dress ties at the neck and has a pretty, tiered skirt and blouson sleeves. With its full length maxi skirt, this dress is best suited to our taller customers.
STYLE TIP: Throw over a swimsuit, with flat sandals, for a trip to the beach. Or add a pair of platform sandals, a pretty clutch and statement jewellery for a stylish night out!
The on-trend colour palette combined with the flattering v-neck and the feminine shape, created by the relatively fitted bodice and circular skirt, make this a super stylish addition to your summer wardrobe. It can very easily be dressed up or down depending on your choice of accessories.
STYLE TIP: Being sleeveless allows this dress to team effortlessly with a fitted denim jacket. This slims down the appearance of the upper body and balances well with the fullness of the skirt.
Created in a gorgeous deep purple, dusty pink and duck-egg blue print, this dress is designed with a fitted bodice, a flattering v-neck and an adjustable tasselled drawstring that sits just below the bust, so you can effortlessly alter the fit. Pretty ruffle frills cover the top of the arm and feature in the full length skirt too. The bottom of the dress finishes with a pretty, border print.
STYLE TIP: Unless you’re extremely tall, this dress is floor-sweepingly fabulous and the perfect opportunity to add hidden inches to your height in a pair of platform heeled sandals, the higher the better!
This wonderful yellow dress, adorned with birds and flowers, combined with the flattering wrap shape and the pretty frill detailing make it a real show stopping piece. The dress has pockets which are embroidered with the most incredible detail and the drawstring tie, allowing you to alter the fit, is finished with vibrant pink and orange tassels.
STYLE TIP: Wrap dresses are always the perfect choice for those with a fuller bust, as they set off your curves beautifully. If you’re worried the deep v could be little too revealing, wear a pretty cream camisole underneath to preserve your modesty.
This knee-length dress looks great on most body shapes, with its pretty frilled cap sleeves and circular skirt. The broderie anglais style trim is very on trend this season and gives the style a feminine flourish. For those that like to lunch with their legs in the sun, this dress is the perfect choice.
STYLE TIP: If you’re not quite ready to bare your legs yet, this dress looks great worn over a pair of white, slim-fit jeans.
This tropical palm dress has a flattering v-neck with pretty green ties finished with bright orange tassels. The bodice is full and benefits from a cotton underlay and deep pockets. The dress has pretty, frilled cap sleeves and the elegant tiered hem is finished with gold lurex ric rac.
STYLE TIP: In warmer climates, this fresh cotton dress will take you from beach to bar in stunning style. Simply upgrade from flip-flops to heels, beach bag to clutch and you’ll find yourself wearing it again and again!
