Wherever you’re planning on spending summer this year, you’ll want to do so in style. As much as we all love the sun, it does come with a serious downside and that’s the difficulty of trying to keep cool while looking good in the intense heat. Humidity and perspiration don’t make for a very attractive appearance, so it’s important to dress appropriately. Bodycon dresses are best left for when the breeze gets up! If you want to embrace the essence of summer, then pick up a handful of beautiful feminine and floaty dresses to help you stay cool and look pretty this year.
Here are some of our favourites:
Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sun Dress, £25
This cold shoulder sun dress is exceptionally feminine. The frilly ruffle detail overlaying the bust is superbly chic and gives off a cute girly vibe. Team with some gladiator sandals and a large woven bag to complete your look.
Laurie Maxi Dress, £140
If you’re looking for a floor-length feminine dress to keep cool in, then this Boden hotchpotch maxi dress is the perfect investment for this summer. The lightweight style makes it easy for you to wander through parks, on the sand or just relax in your garden all the while keeping cool and looking beautiful. It comes in two shade variations of either meadow spring vine, which is a mid-blue and white mix or camellia mono vine which is a red and white combo. Slip on a pair of flats, stock your wrist with bangles and you’ll have that hippie chic look absolutely nailed.
Floral Print Cami Skater Dress, £80
The Hi- Lo style of this floral cami dress from Lipsy is extremely flattering and is the right shape to keep you refreshed. The spaghetti straps can be worn either straight down or as a crossover on the back. The V-shaped neckline is quite deep which will show off your cleavage. This is the perfect dress for transforming your look from day to night. Team with flats during the day, but swap for heels and a smart cardigan or jacket to keep warm in the evening when the temperature drops.
Tea Dress, £90
A tea dress is such an easy go-to style in summer. Simply throw it on, add heels and you’ll look effortlessly stunning. The fine floral patterns goes a long way to making this happen, but so too does the hemline which flows loosely allowing the middle of the dress to hang down just grazing the knee depending on your height. The dress also boasts lace detailing, which adds the casual to the smartness of the skirt. Team with a denim jacket if you want to play down the look, or a white blazer if you want to achieve a smarter evening appearance.
