When it comes to the latest fashion trends, cool summer dresses are all the rage! Whether you’re after a flattering dress with sleeves, or want to stand out in a strapless number, we show you how to get style savvy with our top 5 looks that go the extra mile – day or night.
We’ve done the hard work for you and searched high and low for dresses with sleeves and without. All you need to do is choose the style that suits you, and you’re good to go!
Stand out in sassy stripes
Stripes are simple, but they sure do make a statement. Stand tall with vertical stripes – as these are best for creating a slimmer silhouette.
Be fab in floral
We can’t resist a good floral print! Go bright and bold with brave colours and a larger print, or simmer your look down a little with a cool tone and subtle pattern. We adore both!
Dress to the max
These waist-cinching maxi dresses will not only suit any body type, they’re also deisgned to keep you cool when the temps really soar. Find a maxi dress in a lightweight fabric or with side slits to keep you looking cool and chic on a warm summer’s day.

Stay pretty in pink
