The Throw-On Frocks Making Summer Dressing So Much Easier

Emily Dawes

We're likely all asking ourselves the same question at the moment: What can I wear that is as comfy as sweats but looks like I’ve put a lot more effort in? When we reached out to our readers recently to ask what you wanted to see from us here at Who What Wear, more than anything, we heard requests for chic working-from-home looks for those whose routines have changed recently. 

We’ve enjoyed the novelty of the loungewear phase and already worked out what tops look great with leggings for our Zoom calls, but what we’re really craving now, especially with the sun shining, is pretty dresses. Something we’ve always championed is how easy dresses are to throw on in the morning. Just like a matching two-piece or a jumpsuit, a dress is a full outfit in itself, so it takes away any decision-making from your morning routine. Plus, we challenge you to choose to wear a dress tomorrow and not feel more put-together.

Most dresses are inherently comfy, at least the below styles certainly are, so really, why the hell not chuck on a great dress for your working (from home) day? If anything, it definitely has mood-boosting effects. Monikh is our ultimate inspiration here. (If anyone needs any more persuasion to wear them at home, her Instagram account provides more than enough.) Luckily, smock throw-on styles are one of those summer trends that come around year after year, and 2020 is no exception. 

Let the search for the perfect comfy, pretty dress commence. Keep scrolling for some of our current favourites.
