Despite the weather going two steps forward, one step back, at least it is going in an upward curve towards a consistent 20c by the end of May. I don’t know about you, but I felt completely stung in the wardrobe department during the last ‘heatwave’. The only clothes cool enough (temp wise) were maternity dresses that were still lurking around from two years ago.
Anyway, not to labour on about an unsatisfactory wardrobe or the British weather, I have done a little advance planning so I am more prepared when it is time to don less attire. These are my top ‘throw on dresses’. They are simple and understated – easy to whack on when you are in a rush but want to stay cool.
Can’t go wrong with a shirt dress and in denim, it’s an even younger vibe.
Danielle Dress £75 Hush
If you dare to wear a bit of red, keep jewellery plain and shoes flat. Voila!
Florence Dress £60 Hush
Love the electric blue.
Love a little black dress in the summer and this loose fit dress from Whistles is casual and chic.
For this price you could buy the mustard and the navy. It is long enough to wear solo and just about short enough to wear over jeans if you get a bit chilly.
Blue Summer Dress £34 Gap
Was undecided whether to put this on my upcoming ‘Holiday Dresses’ or here. So versatile – you could build sandcastles in it and hot foot it down the road to school.
Set Summer Dress £280
The price reflects the quality, so if you were looking for something that will last a few years in a universally flattering colour, this is for you.
I am very attracted to this colour. So much so, that I want this dress. (Although to pull of the low slung waist you have to have pretty long legs.)
No, she she isn’t in scrubs (a surgeon doesn’t belt their waist!) It also comes in five other colours. At that price, it is worth a look.
Stay tuned for ‘Holiday Dresses’ and if you need some inspo in the slacks department, you may like this post
