Top 10 Summer Dresses
Boy is it hot out!!!! Here in Frankfurt it’s 36 degrees. I mean woah! Now that it’s officially summer, it’s time to find some great summer dresses for you to wear this season. When it comes to shopping I always look for a dress first. A dress is so easy, there’s no thought that goes into it. Slip on a pair of sandals and viola you’re ready to go.
Today I have put together a style sessions video style my top 10 summer dresses, using mainly sustainable and independent brands. Most of you know I am championing the little guys and trying to persuade you to buy ethically or preloved fashion. Now I have styled up two high street dresses in this episode because I do think they are definitely worthy of mentioning. They are versatile, have a good price point and will carry you through the summer.
So let’s get started.
Tallulah and Hope Gloria Dress - now this dress is currently sold out, but they have a beautiful selection of dresses for you to choose from. I have styled this dress up two ways, back to front and the right way round. I love the fact that this dress can be worn two ways. Perfect for dinner and drinks and for the beach. Hat from Soulabel
The Summer House- *Please note in the video I made a mistake and referred to this brand as Wear a Smile Too, this is on their label, which is so cute but I messed up on their name. Many apologies to the brand for this.* I just just discovered this brand recently through Indian Goods Company and I am truly in love. Their collection is beautifully made. comfortable and very stylish. I dressed up this beautiful light blue dress three ways: summer time chic, casual and dressed up. This dress is very versatile. Styled with Rosita Bonita Earrings, old sandals from Target, Vans from Pam Pam London and sample Jacket. Chic look, Allsaints Blazer and Zara Shoes, Matt & Natt Bag.
The Summer House - Please note in the video I made a mistake and referred to this brand as Wear a Smile Too, this is on their label, which is so cute but I messed up on their name. Many apologies to the brand for this.* I had to throw in another dress from this brand as they are just so comfortable. I love this dress as it will carry you through the entire year! Styled with Beth Pegler Earrings and Suicoke Sandals.
United Colors of Benetton - Now I normally just shop here for my daughter but recently I saw this dress in the window and totally fell in love. I left it for awhile but finally decided to go in and have a try. I’m so glad I did because ladies this dress is awesome! It’s lightweight and can be worn so many different ways. I styled it here with it loose, with a belt and tied in the front and back. Definitely give this dress a go.
Ganni - I am a total Ganni lover. Mainly because their dresses are easy. I mean this dress was a no brainer. It’s oversized and slowly, puffy sleeves and it just looks cool. This dress is perfect on it’s own or paired with the beautiful cream cotton Kai Bea Dress.
Kai Bea Dress - I have been eyeing this dress up for a long while now. I’ve screenshot it, put it in my Wishlist and drooled over it numerous times. Then she had a special sale day on this dress and I jumped for joy!!! UK brand, this dress can be worn several ways, on its own, over another dress, worn as a jacket or a shirt. I styled it here over another dress and over a pair of shorts and a vest. So cool!
Honey Rocks London - I’ve seen this dress all over instagram, styled beautifully, but I have styled this particular for you three different ways. A classic look, turning this dress into a halter and also styling it as a skirt. Yep pretty awesome! One dress worn three ways. Perfect.
M.92 - I mean this dress is a dream. You can only order this dress through her instagram and she has very limited stock. Luckily I got in there just in time! I’ve already worn this dress to a wedding and let’s just say it was a highlight of the evening. Here in this video I have styled it for you casually and dressed up for drinks or a wedding. Styled with old Adidas, Beth Pegler Earrings and Wolf and Gypsy Hat
Kelly Ekardt - The Judith is provably one of the most comfortable dresses you will wear. The bonus of this dress, it has pockets!!!!! Yep, oversized, gingham, cotton and has pockets. What’s not to like??!!!
Maska - Usually, I’m not a huge fan of linen, but this wrap dress is a winner. I love a wrap dress and the colour and shape of this particular dress is really lovely. It’s perfect for a summer evening and can definitely be worn into the Autumn.
So I hope you enjoyed my top 10 summer dresses!!! I would have loved to included way more but I think 10 is a good start.
Happy summer dress shopping!!!
