Dreamy Dresses You Won’t Want To Wait Until Summer To Wear

Sometimes only the dreamiest of dresses can spark your sartorial interest. Here are five of the most fabulous pieces in stores now.

The blush shade of pink, embroidered corals and diamanté detailing make this dress a really special piece. Styled with a bold red lip, it looks modern rather than princessy.

Coral dress, €199 at uterque.com

The golden yellow hue of this dress makes me immediately think of summer. With its capped sleeves and maxi length, it’s a demure choice at first glance, however the body-skimming silhouette adds a subtle sensuousness.

Long printed dress, €29.95 at Zara

Perfect for a summer wedding, the races and any number of other occasions this summer, this stunning Massimo Dutti dress is like nothing else on the high street just now. It’s expensive at €349, but it is a limited edition piece. If you’re a confident dresser, there is plenty of scope to style up this subtle shade of blush with brights.

Mango is the new Zara, with each collection better than the last. This powdery blue floral dress is a no-brainer for summer, as it can be easily dressed up or down. If you really want to go for it, add some flowers to your hair as seen on the runways of Rodarte and Naeem Khan (the designer who dressed Helen Mirren for the Oscars).

Long floral print dress, €89.95 at Mango

Long chiffon sleeves and asymmetric ruffles give this dress a very romantic vibe. The smoky shade of lilac adds a vintage feel to the piece too.

Floral ruffle dress, €89 at Warehouse
