7 of The Best Dresses For Spring/Summer 16

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.
