Laid-back summer days call for dresses that are just as carefree. Lucky for us, Arket got the memo.
The Swedish brand, which prides itself on creating products that last, has a collection of dresses you’ll be wearing all summer long and even beyond the season. All of them have that carefree, minimalist Scandi feel the brand is known for and the style crowd loves.
We went through all of them, and we’re positive we’ve found the best ones to wear this season. There’s a maxi, smocked dress that has thin straps that we’re pairing with our favourite dad sandals and a basket bag for a quick catch-up with friends. We also found a gorgeous crepe maxi dress in a lovely green colour that can also easily pass as a wedding guest outfit.
Whether you’re looking for something to wear everyday for a no-brainer outfit, or something to bring on a quick vacation, Arket summer dresses provide so many options.
