It's no secret that the weather in this country is confusing as can be, but that doesn't mean your style has to suffer. In fact, this is actually the best time to start assembling your summer wardrobe - and everyone knows that any good summer wardrobe starts with a great dress. And luckily, the sun doesn't have to shine in order to whip out a killer sundress or two.
Where summertime is usually synonymous with hiked hemlines, this year we see midi dresses making serious moves to become an all- year-round staple in floral prints, silk finishes. high necklines and even some long sleeves that are perfect for inbetween days. But don't go writing off the mini just yet, as thigh-tickling lengths with prairie prints, square necks and exaggerated puff sleeves are cropping up aplenty on some of our favourite fashion influencer feeds. Come sundown, bodycon neon goes head to head with ruched satin mini slips in a bid to become summer's most essential party dress.
But with so many dresses to choose from and so little time in which to snap them up, we have to be a little selective when it comes to picking out this season's hottest dress looks. That's why we've whittled it down to just three essential styles to invest in now.
The 3 Dress Styles You Need For Summer 2019
Bank Holiday? Actual Holiday? Just a day? That deserves a new dress. From white hot winners to floral midi favourites, here’s the key styles to know for the season ahead...
1. Little White Dress
White hot and well worth giving up your wine for, we're willing to put up with the infinite staining opportunities in order to enjoy this ultra flattering shade.
2. Floral Favourites
We know we're not meant to have favourite but if floral dresses - particularly of the midi dress variety - keep coming back season after season, it looks like we already do. Rixo's now signature abstract florals are a huge hit this season with the likes of Monikh Dale rocking one on the regular, but for those after an affordable alternative which just as much impact, Topshop are a must.
3. Slip Into Summer
The flattering lingerie-inspired look too good to cover up, these slinky high-shine satin styles are the perfect choice for everything from elegant evening dos and wedding receptions to a casual weekend brunch. Just switch up your shoe from trainer to 90s strappy sandal depending on the mood. Consider us obsessed.
