With the warmer months upon us, we've been eyeing up our favourite summer dresses to see us through the season. From colourful abstract and floral prints to dramatic colour blocking and pretty pastels to all white, we've got the hottest summer trends sewn up in our fashion team's edit.
The wonderful thing about summer dresses is that they're so versatile, which means that whatever your body shape or style, you'll be able to find something that suits. Hate showing your arms? No problem, just opt for a flattering long sleeved summer dress instead. Or if you consider your legs to be your biggest trouble area, then we've got plenty of styles that will help you cover up in style.
If you're lucky enough to be blessed with an hourglass figure, then you'll look fantastic in tailored dresses that show off your curves. Got more of an apple body shape? Opt for an A-line or tunic dress. Meanwhile women with pear shapes should draw attention to their top halves with a detailed top number. Tall and slim? Show off your height with a floral dress.
Perfect for any occasion, you can dress your summer frock up with a pair of heels and some sparkling accessories for a night on the town or keep it casual with sandal flats and a stylish hat for holiday comfort. Or make your summer dress work for the office by pairing it with some ballet flats and a chic blazer. A flattering summer dress is this season's ultimate must-have buy as you'll be able to wear it again and again.
This buy from Reiss, £195
, is a firm favourite. Keep your cool on a warm summer's day - whatever the occasion. This soft-as-silk dress can do 'dressed down' with flats, or work that wedding season with stilettos...feel that floral print and wear it everywhere.
