Add These Elegant Dresses To Your Baskets This Spring and Summer!

The sun is coming out earlier in the day, the birds are chirping and weather is gradually getting warmer and warmer. Welcome to spring! The warmer time of year is always my favourite but adjusting my outfits to the weather can sometimes prove harder than I’d imagined. With it usually being rainy and cool here in the UK, the warm weather usually comes as a pleasant surprise but it also means a shopping trip is around the corner. I’m sure this is the case for some of you ladies as well! So, to help with that we’ve curated a list of some of the dresses that we’re adding to our shopping basket – we think you should do the same!


 

Na-kd Waist Detail Midi Dress



This is a simple but bright and bold number. This dress would be perfect for those of you with olive toned skin or those of you with golden undertones (if gold jewellery suits you best, you probably fall in this category). I would pair this dress with a neutral pair of espadrilles, the colour of this dress will stand out on its own, so avoid coloured shoes that might clash with the dress.

Sandro Estel Belted Canvas Mini Shirt Dress



I love this number. This dress gives me "hot girl summer" vibes. This pastel shade looks beautiful on the model's skin tone and actually works to brighten her appearance. One of the things I love about this dress is that you can easily dress it down by undoing the first few buttons and add a necklace. The full sleeves on this number, will mean that you won't be left feeling chilly if you wear it during a summer evening.

H&M Satin Dress



This is a simple yet elegant piece, which would fit perfectly on ladies with an inverted triangle body shape. The balloon-shaped sleeves bring more of the weight to the lower half and therefore help to balance out your shape, if you have broad shoulders. As displayed, the belt can be either tied at the back or at the front, which helps to switch up your look depending on how you feel that day. Despite the appearance, this dress has a lightweight, breezy feel which is perfect for summer! Alternatively, you could add some cream boots for a nippy spring day.

White dresses are perfect for a hot summers day, not only does the colour help to keep you cool but the fabric is weighty enough to ensure that you don't have any Marilyn Monroe moments! It's the perfect summertime dress.
