20 of the best throw-on dresses from the high street now

by Holly O'Neill
16th Jun 2020

All we want to wear right now are throw-on dresses.

How’s your WFH wardrobe looking?

I’m alternating between loungewear and cardigans and my favourite throw-on dresses. There is no inbetween. While we might not have any occasion coming up for a while, throw-on, oversized dresses are the luxe way to dress lazily. We’ll wear them now, with no bra and slippers while working from home, then in summer with Birkenstocks.
