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.
