The best summer dresses you need in your wardrobe right now

Here's our run down of the summer dress styles you need for 2021:

The white summer dress

Perfect for making your tan really pop, a white summer dress is totally versatile and so easy to style with any colour of shoe or handbag. Add a pair of chunky sandals and your favourite sunnies for total goddess vibes and you're good to go, whether it's a staycation at the beach or lunch and drinks in the city.


Gingham dresses are so hot right now and - bonus- gingham never seems to go out of fashion. It's not just monochrome gingham either- think pastel pink, mint green or classic camel. Go for a gingham dress with long sleeves to cover up on those typically British days when the sun just doesn't get the memo. Winner.

Cute summer dresses and sundresses

When the mercury rises, no wardrobe is complete without a colourful sundress or two. The absolute beauty of sundresses is that pretty much anything goes. From floaty summer dresses to strappy minis, sundresses are also perfect for taking you from day to night. Rebellious Fashion's Jaydee Pink Ripped Extreme Side Cut Out Mini Dress is serious holiday vibes, it’s perfect for the beach, the park or evening drinks.


The bodycon dress is a summer staple and is even hotter right now thanks to fashion's current love of all things 90s. Team your bodycon dress with a pair of chunky white platform trainers or dad sandals for the day then switch it up for the night with a pair of strappy heels. Our Azra Black Ribbed Racer Midi Dress is the perfect bodycon little black dress to take you from casual daytime to party nights, while the Nia White High Neck Ruched Mini Bodycon Dress ticks all the style boxes in one outfit.

So, there's our hot list for 2021, but one thing's for sure. When it comes to summer dresses pretty much anything goes, and you'll be reaching for these pieces year after year. As long as it looks super cute, right?
