We’ve Found The Best Wear-Forever Summer Dresses On The High Street


Despite all the weather-related moaning that happens in this country, we have actually been treated to some hot temperatures this summer. The problem seems to be that, with all the talk of rain and cloud, we never seem to be prepared in the wardrobe department. The sun comes out and we panic. But not next time. No, the next time a mini heatwave rolls into town, we’ll be prepared with a wardrobe of throw-on dresses that are perfect for staying cool. And where we will be getting these dresses from? Free People.

The bohemian label has long been a favourite for easy-breezy dresses that require little effort but deliver big impact, whether that’s via their statement prints, billowy silhouettes or ruffled trims. Selena Gomez is a big fan of its puff-sleeved maxi styles, while Emily Ratajkowski favours their beach hats (which, we can confirm, are brilliant).

As well as dresses from its own collection, which are all designed in-house at its Philadelphia HQ, Free People hosts excellent dress brands such as Magnolia Pearl, Spell and Endless Summer, the latter of which has the prettiest (and by the looks of things comfiest) white summer dress we’ve seen in a long time.

The best thing about these dresses is that their timeless prints and shapes (which vary from flirty minis to flowing maxis) mean they’re firmly in the ‘buy now, wear forever’ camp of summer dress shopping. The only question is – which one will be your companion for the next heatwave?
