Summer Dresses That Will Make Heads Turn

The weather has finally cheered up in England, which can only mean one thing. It’s time for summer dresses! I love it when summer rolls around, the fashion is always fantastic! The bright colours, beautiful dresses and the ability to wear whatever you want without question. I love it!

Today I am sharing my top summer dresses that will be sure to make some heads turn!

The summer dresses your wardrobe is calling for


Rainbow Bandeau Dress

The rainbow trend has been in every highstreet store since the beginning of the warmer seasons. I’m not mad at that. I am a complete sucker for colourful statement pieces. This Topshop summer dress is just gorgeous. A bandeau dress is a great way to show a little skin and get that tan on your shoulders, without being too revealing. Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Lemon cut out bardot dress

There seems to be a strange trend circling the fashion world this season but I kinda love it, fruit! Whether it’s lemons, cherries or oranges, every retailer seems to be catching on to this bright and summery print. Pretty Little Thing were no exception, coming out with this bardot cut out lemon printed dress. It’s the perfect summer piece!pretty little thing lemon print summer dress


Button through skater dress

Another trend that has surfaced over the past few months, button down pieces. I am in love with this trend, it can turn tops, dresses and skirts from casual to classy and is so stylish. This cute little ASOS skater dress is no exception, how cute is it! Such a staple piece for the warmer months.

Polka dot midi dress

Polka dot print is a trend that never really goes out of style. It adds a little bit of something to an item, a little spark. This Boohoo polka dot number is giving me serious summer vibes! It’s such a chic piece, I can imagine myself sipping cocktails abroad in this already (I wish!).

Belted shirt dress

I love shirt dresses. They are the comfiest thing and the closest you’ll get to being in public in pyjamas! This one from LOTD is colourfully striped, and I am seriously diggin’ it. It can definitely be both dressed up and down, so it’s perfect for all occasions.

Tropical print maxi dress

Maxi dresses just speak beach vibes to me. Long, flowy and gorgeous for summer! Ikrush is a brand I have only recently discovered, but oh boy I’m glad I did. Looking for affordable, cute and on trend pieces? This is the place! This tropical print maxi caught my eye, it’s gorgeous. The off the shoulder detail and tie front set it off perfectly!

Grid check pinafore dress

Pinafore dresses are an all year round trend. In the summer, they get lighter in colour and fabric. When winter comes around, it’s time for the thicker cord pinafores (a personal favourite). This pinafore from New Look is adorable. It’s minimalistic, and I can just see it layered with a brightly coloured tee.
