People just won’t stop getting married, will they? With summer wedding invites coming in left, right and centre and The Big Day™ now stretching to two- or three-days-long, there’s a never-ending repertoire of outfits needed.  

The humble slip dress seems to be the trending option of the moment and if your summer calendar looks more like a spreadsheet of upcoming nuptials, consider investing in a slip dress in a classic shade of navy or gold and swapping out your accessories as needed. The sartorial equivalent of one bird, many stones.

If minimalism isn’t your thing, nothing screams summer more than a colourful print dress. There may not always be a variety of eligible men on the market, but you can be sure there’s a fun and flirty dress out there just for you.

Whatever your style and whether you favour ditsy florals or of-the-minute equestrian motifs, these flattering dresses will see you through from the ceremony to the inevitable 2am Cha Cha Slide.
