12 Must-Have Dresses For Summer!

Dresses have long been a wardrobe staple, whatever the season and for good reason, too…


They’re perfect for dressing up for smarter occasions or throwing on when you’re after something comfortable and casual – the same dress can be worn with heels and a fitted blazer or dressed down with chunky biker boots and a leather jacket depending on the occasion or your mood – they’re the most versatile style in in your wardrobe each season and something that shouldn’t be underappreciated or saved for best. 

This season is no different… we’re still crazy about the dresses!

We’ve put together a guide to the top 12 must-have dresses for this spring summer, so read on for our favourite styles and some styling tips and tricks.



Maxi dresses have been having a moment for quite a few seasons now, and we can see why!

With plenty of boho vibes, flattering finishes and all around smart casual glamour – the maxi dress is the perfect partner for day to night dressing, meaning you’ll feel just as fabulous at the officer as you will at the bar.

For an extra flattering finish, don’t forget to add a statement belt! If you’re opting for a boho, floaty maxi dress, this will help accentuate your curves and clinch in your waist.

If you’re after a more casual look, pair yours with your favourite pair of trainers, or add some ankle boots in a contrasting colour for an extra edge.

To get the most out of your maxi dress – wear over some jeans and a casual tee for a fabulous layered look or add a chunky knit over the top to create a skirt effect – 3 outfits from one dress… now that’s the versatility we like to see!

We’ve been guilty of steering clear of mid-length styles in the past, cautious of the calf length finish and the uncertainty of how to style them, but we’ve been neglecting a real wardrobe staple and a style that’s as versatile as it is classy.

This season, we’re embracing the midi dress and all the glorious outfit choices that come with it.

For summer adventures, we’re loving our The Willow Boho Dress, the flattering button up detail and intricate floral design are a match made in dress-heaven – add a fresh pair of white trainers and a casual white tee and you’ve got an outfit that’s unique, comfortable and ready for summer adventures!

If you’re after something a little more sophisticated that’s still got a casual edge, try the Maybelle Shirt Dress or the Dixie Halterneck Dress – adding trainers or sandals with these styles not only adds a more laid-back touch, but it also adds a softer finish to the style making the shorter length less daunting.

You’ll find lots of remarkable midi styles in our wardrobe in seasons to come!
