Sizzling Summer Dresses

As we head into July it finally feels as if summer is here! Bring out the rose, step in to the garden and fire up the barbeque! Next up is what to wear now that the heat is on?

From mini to midi, printed to plain, lightweight summer dresses are some of the most versatile pieces of clothing to have in your hot weather wardrobe.

Remember, you don’t have to bear all to be comfortable – it’s all about the fabric. Soft and lightweight textiles such as fine cottons and gauzy linens mean that your summer dress can have sleeves or reach to your ankles yet still be cool. Just keep the silhouette loose, be it A-line, tiered or maxi and save the body-con styles for later in the year.’ Breezy’ is the key word - be on trend with billowy sleeves and you should be trouble free.

Steer clear of synthetic fabrics like nylon and polyester as they tend to trap heat and instead opt for breathable, lightweight options.

Linen dresses require a degree of preparation. We suggest addressing this the night before if you can which spares you handling a hot iron on a hot day before donning a equally hot dress!

Swishy skirts that skim the ankles are everywhere this summer. Whether you wear your summer skirt with a t-shirt or a cami, have a pretty cardigan to hand for when the mercury drops. Alternatively, you smarten it up with a crisp white shirt - the gentle cool breeze as you go about your day will be a welcome relief.
Here are a few of our top picks for the sizzling summer that’s just around the corner!

Selected Femme - Dress - Melli D

In fine 100% organic cotton, this dress is perfect for wafting. The stunning sandshell colour shouts summer but the real stand out ids the low back and strikingly large bow at the back of the neck.
