With days of spring sunshine brightening up our outdoor walks, it’s giving us all the inspiration we need to wear something other than loungewear and trainers.
And when it comes to dressing for spring and summer, high-street store Monsoon has always been a favourite for its flowy fits, feminine prints and flattering styles.
So it’s no surprise that their currently bestselling dresses have gone straight to the top of our spring wish lists.
Their light floaty skirts are just what we need to keep cool in the warm upcoming days and their comfortable jersey fabrics might even stop us from crawling right back into our beloved loungewear.
Monsoon’s Bestselling Dresses
The Animal Print Dress
Animal print made its almighty comeback a couple of summers and it looks like it’s still going strong.
With the stylish print going nowhere anytime soon, it can be challenging to keep the look fresh and do something new with it, so we’re loving vibrant pink and blue take on the classic print.
The soft midi-length jersey dress features a chic V-neck and a flattering self-tie belt, while the slight leg slit gives the frock a more relaxed and playful summer vibe.
The Shirt Dress
Sunny days and shirt dresses go together like global pandemics and adopting creative hobbies.
And this flattering midi version is going straight in our wardrobes.
The navy and rose print give this frock a lovely summer feel while the clinched twist detail waist looks good on any shape and sleeveless aspect gives us a chance to work on the tan!
The Floral Print Dress
Bright and floaty is just what we need when the sun makes an appearance!
This elegant bright red midi features a delicate floral print that can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
Where it with flat sandals or canvas shoes to brighten up your daily walk or chuck on a pair of wedges for your first post-isolation BBQ.
The Maxi Dress
Made using the retailer’s own sustainable fabric this light maxi features flattering wide shoulder straps and a shirred-stretch back panel for a comfortable and precise fit.
Plus the gorgeous colourful print full of birds and florals gives us dreams of carefree holidays and strolls in the sun- just what we need to brighten our days!
All of the pieces are currently on sale on Monsoon’s website and are still available in nearly all of their sizes.
We’d grab them before they go!
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
