Fashion Fix: 10 highstreet dresses perfect for summer barbeques

With temperatures set to soar this weekend, everyone and their mother will have the barbeque out. It’s not often we’re blessed with such glorious weather, but boy do we know how to make hay when the sun shines. There’s nowhere like Ireland on a sunny day, as they say.

But what does one wear to an al fresco get-together? The comfier, the better, we say. Looking good is mostly about feeling good and it’s hard to achieve that when all you can focus on is how tight your shorts are. In fact, forgo the shorts altogether… a summer dress is the ultimate in outdoor barbeque attire.

Here are some of our current highstreet favourites.
