3 Must Have Summer Dresses This Season

Lets talk summer dresses! Summer is finally upon us in the UK, after what feels like a VERY long winter.  And with the warmer weather and long evenings now gracing us with their presence, many of us are looking to refresh our summer wardrobes.

For me, when it comes to summer dresses its about ease and comfort, whilst still looking fashionable.  I need to be able to move and stay cool with versatile pieces which can be worn for multiple different occasions.

So, after a year in lockdown wearing nothing but loungewear or activewear, what should you be wearing this summer? Lets take a look at 3 summer dresses you need to add to your collection for 2021!

3 Must Have Summer Dresses

#1: The Midi Dress

Dress it up or dress it down – the midi dress is the perfect outfit for any occasion.  Wear it to the office during the day and head straight out for date night in the evening without the need to get changed. Or if it turns a little cooler, layer it up with a black leather jacket, ankle boots and a cross body bag.

I particularly love this gorgeous midi dress from Chi Chi London. With its vibrant green floral print, short, flowing sleeves, a high rounded neckline and tiered skirts – its definitely one of the must-have summer dresses this season!

#2: Florals

Nothing oozes femininity like a beautiful floral dress. Floral summer dresses are seemingly available in every style, colour and fabric, meaning you are guaranteed to find something that appeals to you. Pair your floral dresses with a gorgeous pair of strappy nude heels for cocktails with the girls. Or dress them down with white sneakers when you are busy running errands in the sunshine.

Dresses don’t come much prettier than this floral polka dot print dress featuring a square neckline, short sleeves and a flattering side split.  Its the definition of a perfect girly dress – what’s not to love?

#3: Bold Prints

This summer it is all about bold prints!  Think bright, colourful and perhaps a little bit OTT.  After a year of lockdowns and restrictions, everyone just wants to get out there and live their life to the fullest.  And what better way to do that than wearing fabulous, eye-catching summer dresses?!?

Chi Chi London offers the perfect dress for just that!  Featuring an abstract print, ruffle sleeves and hemline plus a hand tied belt to cinch in at the waist.  This fabulous mini dress is perfect for hot summer days and will ensure you stand out from the crowd, whatever the occasion.
