Floaty dresses that you can throw on and go are all that we can face wearing at the moment, with this scorcher of a heatwave and temperatures above 25°C all week (perhaps all that classic British complaining has paid off!)
There’s nothing worse than tight-fitting clothes in a heatwave – and we know just where to look. Brands like COS, Frankie Shop and Raey are the minimalist labels you can rely on throughout summer. Oversized silhouettes and loose frocks are their forte.
Summer dresses that aren’t restricting are exactly what you should reach for in humid conditions – you’ll run less of a sweat patch risk and you’ll also feel much more comfortable throughout the day.
The best part about loose fitting dresses is how easy it is to slip into one, think throw-it-over-your-head-and-go type quickness. If you’re someone who has a matter of minutes to get dressed in the mornings, and hates actually having to think about what to put on, a floaty dress is your sort of bag.
Some of our personal faves? This cottagecore dream of a silhouette from Damson Madder, this Broderie Anglaise number from GANNI and this relaxed linen shirt dress – that’s totally spot on if you’re wondering what to wear to work – from COS.
Want more dresses to fill your wardrobe with? We’ve got ASOS summer dresses, & Other Stories dresses, slip dresses, cut out dresses, summer dresses with sleeves, summer mini dresses, white dresses and modest summer dresses. We’ve really thought of everything.
