If you’re dress obsessed like us, this is the edit you’ve been waiting for. The high street is awash with Boho florals, graphic stripes, contemporary?cuts and diaphanous sheers. Here’s what’s top of our shopping list this week.

 

I love the ice-cream shades of this gorgeous knit dress, and the fluidity of the skirt. Summer dresses should have movement and be breathable; nothing too tight or too short.

This super cool’denim dress with oversized pockets will look fabulous worn with bare legs through spring summer, and can be reimagined for winter over wide-leg cropped trousers. An absolute wardrobe staple.

Black can be tricky to wear in summer, but this sheer and lace dress from Sandro looks lightweight and fresh. Pair with nude accessories for added softness.
