Top 5 Summer Holiday Dresses

At this time of year, we’d normally be showing you “how to dress for the temperamental British summer”. Not this year! Not so far. It looks like we have a proper summer on our hands, and the perfect excuse to wear dresses. Lots of dresses. Whether you’re sunbathing on the beach, escaping to the countryside or hanging out in the garden, these are our top five summer holiday dresses, picked with our favourite holiday types in mind (in case it doesn’t last and we have to escape).

The Country Escape

Dress: The T-Shirt

Breathable and available in linen and cotton, relax in a short sleeved, V-neck dress. Wear loose or cinch in the waist by pairing with a skinny belt or waist tie. Throw on a leather jacket for the cooler nights.

The Exotic Destination

Dress: The Silk

Pair your destination with a dreamy dress – a floaty, sleeved hibiscus maxi or cyclamen print wrap. Wear with simple flats and straw accessories through the day and heeled sandals with a suede clutch at night.

The Beach Holiday

Dress: The Kaftan

No dress says beach holiday quite like the kaftan. We’ve got mayan tile prints, embroidered detailing and cotton linen blends. An optional waist tie lets you transition from beachside cover-up to evening dinning. Just add simple sandals, a clutch and jewellery.

The Staycation

Dress: The Slip

Simple and effortless. A fuss-free outfit. Grab a slip dress and make yourself stylish and comfortable on home soil. Sleeveless and light-weight, on-trend slips are the perfect summer coolers, with bold colours for extra punch. Walk in plimsolls and trainers and layer with a simple tee, or leave just as it is.
