I'm Already Curating My Summer Wardrobe—Starting With These Dresses


Blame Instagram, but I genuinely feel like I’m the only person on the planet right now who isn’t in the Maldives. Some influencers might have on beautiful bikinis and glam cover-ups, but we have 15-tog duvets and heated blankets. While we’re still snuggled up in those, we can still join the jet set by planning our own getaway wardrobes. It’s not even the end of January, but I’m already plotting my holiday look of the distant future and/or for when the weather picks up here. The main player? Summer dresses, of course.

The new-season stock is already available thanks to the cruise collections catering to winter sun holidaymakers (if you’re lucky/smart enough to have booked a trip, this gallery will be particularly helpful). As such, I’ve already started saving items across all of my favourite accounts—from ASOS to Net-a-Porter. From the prints, shapes and brands worth investing in to the styles that work both home and away, I’ve made an edit of the 20 summer dresses you should consider for 2019.

Style Notes: Timeless, effortlessly stylish and so versatile, polka dots are still going to be big news this summer. Sunset backdrop optional but strongly advised.

Style Notes: Shades of green have been widely popular of late. From lime to sage, this time, we’re drawing attention to the deeper hue as seen on Ellie in the Hellessy belted dress. Team with raffia accessories to be beach-smart and switch to golden jewels for evening.

Style Notes: We imagine you’ve heard of Saloni (or at least noticed their dreamy dresses on social). Like Ghost and Rixo, this is another go-to brand for It dresses. See below for proof…

Style Notes: We know what you’re thinking: If you go on holiday in winter, you’ll still have ages before you can re-wear summer dresses, right? Wrong. If you opt for a dress that’s easy to layer, you’ve got the answer to shopping savvy. Look for styles that also work with tights, ones you can layer over polo necks and options that look just as good with boots as they will with sandals.

This dress is knitted and long, so it can work during colder months. The fabric is quite light, though, so it’s perfect for holiday evenings.
