7 dresses still worth buying this summer

Dress: £55, Topshop. Trainers: £44.99, Vans. Wicker bag: £79, Wood/Grey. Photographs: Christopher O’Donnell.

There’s no doubt it’s the summer of the dress. Easy to wear, it doesn’t require (too) much thought in styling and the High Street has definitely got it covered.

So for those of us who still haven’t fully got our summer wardrobe in gear (me included), here’s a few that are still worth buying:

1. £42, Topshop

Now this is, for me, one of those perfect holiday dresses – somewhere like Crete with those whitewashed walls and distressed blue doors. Just throw it on with a pair of gladiator sandals, a silk tie in your hair and a basket bag.

2. Finery

Okay so this dress has sold out BUT it is coming back and there is a waiting list for it. And I’m on it. So I just thought I’d give you a heads up. you’re welcome.

3. £29.99, New Look.

I haven’t looked at New Look for a while, but as soon as I saw this dress on LoveClothBlog’s Instagram, I logged on immediately. It’s super flattering with long sleeves and midi length (as opposed to most on the market which are so short!) and I love how Kim has styled hers with trainers.

4. £110, And Other Stories.

There aren’t many blogposts now where I don’t do a lot of my research on And Other Stories…it just gets it right for me. I love this dress, and even a little more so for being a maxi dress. I actually have purchased this so hopefully it’ll look as good as I imagine with flats!

5. Dress: £88, Free People.

I saw someone wearing this in mustard yellow recently, and it looked amazing. It’s quite low-cut so more for the smaller chested amongst us – it also looks great half done up with jeans or over shorts on holiday.

6. £24.99, H&M.

Apologies, this dress post seems to have a bit of a chiffon and floral theme – but that’s trends for you. Again, the longer sleeves make this much cooler than the usual tea dress and it’d make a great everyday style worn with flats.

7. £40, River Island.

And finally, another fab dress for holiday. Imagine with a bit of a tan and some layered gold jewellery…


  1. I recently bought the Free People one and it’s on its way to me. Hope it’s as beautiful in person as it looks on the photo! I see it as a more affordable version of Realisation Par and Reformation dresses.

  2. ooh the red button up dress is right up my street! Love the thought of wearing it over jeans like you said too!

  3. Gorgeous dresses but so much polyester . Even the pricey Other Stories one. They just get terribly sweaty on me and put me off buying them.

  4. I fell in love with the & other stories dress and seriously thinking of getting it 🙂 please do let us know if it’s worth the price tag xxx
