12 airy smock dresses to float through this week’s heatwave

The weather looks set to be beautiful this week, so why not don a beautiful dress to go with it?


In the interest of comfort, our fashion sense has turned exclusively towards jumpers and tracksuit bottoms since work-from-home season started over two months ago. But now that the weather is picking up and that we are actually physically seeing people again (we though it would never happen!) we need to find some new pieces that are suitable for the sunny weather, while not compromising on the comfort we’ve grown accustomed to.

Enter: the smock dress. Airy, loose, in any fabric or pattern you choose, the smock dress is the perfect solution to those hot summer days where you need something easy and stylish to throw on. As at home at a party as it is just sitting out your back garden, a smock dress suits almost every occasion, and almost every shape too. The fact that it is not form fitting leaves your body to be free and comfortable – minimal sweat stains, and no chaffing.

Convinced? Us too. Here are 12 of our favourites we’ve spotted this week.
