15 of the best cult dresses of summer 2020

These dresses have been cropping up all over Instagram this summer


A great summer dress is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. It can carry you from a day in the garden to a barbecue to a night out (remember those?), and playing with bright colours and prints is what this time of year is all about.

I spend a lot of time gathering style inspiration on Instagram, saving outfits that spark joy, and mentally filing ideas that I can recreate from my own wardrobe. There are so many fabulous summer dresses on the high street right now that I’ve seen time and again on my feed, that I felt I had to share them for some mid-summer retail therapy.
