25 Summer Dresses That Are Guaranteed to Make You Feel Good

·2-min read

Shops are brimming with summer dresses right now. So many, in fact, that the selection can be overwhelming. Where can you find a pick of the best? Right here, of course. Not only have we done our research in terms of key trends for summer, but we’ve also found styles you’ll be wearing way beyond this season. These are frocks you’ll be able to pull out in 2023 and still be smug about how great they are. From roomy T-shirt dresses and of-the-moment cut-out styles to smocked silhouettes (a trend we don’t see disappearing anytime soon) and classic florals, there’s a style to suit everyone—even those who don’t identify as dress lovers.

At the top of our most-coveted list is COS' gathered dress, which comes in both black and a beautiful dark green. Add heels and a clutch and it's a perfect option for a statement-making (and buffet-friendly) wedding guest look. On the upper-end of the market, meanwhile, is Nanushka's Rhia dress which could not be a better encapsulation of holiday style—even if it's just for wearing in your local park. But, whatever your chosen summer aesthetic, you can trust us to bring you the best of the best. Scroll down to see and shop the 25 warm weather dresses we're loving right now.
