One of our favourite pieces to style all year round, but especially in the spring/summer season is, of course, the dress. From mini dresses to maxis, simple styles to busy colourful prints, there is a dress for any occasion. Dresses can be versatile and easily styled up or down with a simple switch of a shoe and a bag or adding a layer with a jumper, but they are also a great way to instantly look chic and put together even if you have just thrown on the dress and ran out the door. Here are a few of our favourite dresses to wear now and throughout the season to add some brightness in prints and comfort in flowy silhouettes to your spring wardrobe.
The floral print dress - has there ever been a spring or summer season when this was not the go to trend? Probably not, and we’re definitely not complaining. Every year designers find a new way to reinvent the iconic style and this season we are seeing a lot of retro vibes with the floral prints and the silhouettes. Style this Essentiel Antwerp ruffled long sleeve dress to any occasion when the world opens up again, from the office to the park for a picnic or even as a wedding guest. This floral print dress is best paired with simple white trainers or if you are looking for a dressier option try a mustard yellow heel that matches the print.
When looking for that more bohemian summer look, this Leon & Harper bandana print dress is a must have style. The gorgeous yellow dress has a dreamy flowy silhouette with casual short sleeves and tie to cinch in the waist. This dress looks great with a jean jacket for a classic summer look.
