As I write this the sun is shining and as it’s another bank holiday weekend plus half term, I thought it was time to have a look at sunny sundresses for the summer ahead – which obviously means that will have totally jinxed the weather for the weekend ahead. Apologies.
This summer, little button through strappy dresses are where it’s at. These feminine styles are midi length, with a waist seam and generally a soft, slightly fuller skirt. Specific yes, but lovely for over swimwear, summer days/nights and generally ticking the holiday and casual summer wardrobe boxes.
Here are my top ten:
You can’t avoid the white sundress which is everywhere this summer. This one is lovely and currently Oasis has 25% off everything until 27th May so even more of an incentive to make a purchase.
In a similar vein there is this Zara number – although why the model is looking quite so miserable I have no idea. It doesn’t sell the dress which is actually lovely in the flesh.
I have this linen mix sundress from H&M which looks lovely with a denim jacket layered over the top. It also has an elasticated back panel and adjustable straps which makes it a more flexible style which will work for different sizes and proportions. It does also come in black.
This has a very pretty tie back but is already out of stock in 8 and 10 and low stock in other sizes so one to grab quickly.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s something very cool and chic about a black dress in the sunshine. Just add a straw hat, sunnies and sandals or espadrilles.
Or go sunny with some yellow.
With animal print still dominating, this little zebra print number is lovely. Pop on over your bikini or dress up with a sandal (flat or otherwise) and some jewellery.
Floral prints are also everywhere and this little ditsy print is very sweet.
For a totally different vibe, this postcard print sundress is perfect for holidays.
Alternatively you can’t go wrong with a stripe for the summer.
You’ve got the sundress sorted, now we just need some sunshine…Happy Bank Holiday!
