The must-have dresses of summer 2021

16 July, 2021

The arrival of sun-soaked days and balmy nights means summer is officially here. It's now time to rejuvenate your closet with a collection of summer dresses that will carry you through the season with ease.

 For everyday

Breeze through the week in simple summer dresses that transition seamlessly from work to evenings out. Maxi and midi dresses with sleeves promise an office-appropriate look that can be styled up or down without much extra thought. Accessorise with heels and a lightweight blazer for professional polish or with sandals and a crossbody bag for casual styling. Channel the summer mood further with bright colourways, timeless florals and intricate prints. 

For casual weekends

On weekends, opt for sundresses with feminine accents, such as lace, blouson sleeves and split-front hems.  Bright floral designs are ideal for low-key summer days, while crisp white summer dresses will take you from day to night with minimal fuss. As for length and style, anything goes! From playful mini dresses with floaty hems, to elevated tiered midi dresses — the choice is yours. 

For vacation

Settle into holiday mode with carefree elegance in sweeping long summer dresses. Wear your maxi with a boater hat for beach days, or with espadrilles and gold jewellery for sunset dinners by the bay. Florals are always the print of choice. For a refreshing look, opt for white and green-based prints or match the summer skyline in shades of pink, orange and yellow. 

For parties

A cocktail dress is your answer to after-dark parties. Puff sleeves and one-shoulder silhouettes across mini dresses are key this season, promising to go from dinner to dancefloors. Our favourites arrive in bright summer-ready colourways of blush pinks and orange. Pair your party dress with stand-out earrings and strappy heels for a head-turning look. 

For something special 

If you're looking for a summer dress for a wedding, black-tie party or special event, say yes to floral maxi dresses and satin midi dresses. Radiate romance with lightweight floor-sweeping styles in soft botanical prints. For a sleek formal look, slip into a satin midi dress with a fitted silhouette. Coral, mint and blue tones are an elegant choice, particularly when paired with fine jewellery and a sparkling clutch.
