Spring has sprung, and while it’s still bloody cold outside, I can find any excuse to look for dresses to add to my wardrobe.
Dresses are always my go-to whether it’s winter or summer because they take very little thought when it comes to styling. If you often find yourself in a rush in the mornings, perhaps it’s the same story for you.
Despite being labelled summer dresses, I find that many can be worn in winter too. I layer them over roll necks, add chunky knits or team with printed tights when the seasons change.
There are pieces you can only wear in summer (denim shorts, I’m looking at you), but when I clear my wardrobe at the end of the season, I keep many of my dresses where I can see them – so you can probably guess that these play a key part in my style rotation.
As a result, I know which stores do good ones that you can shop online. I hate shopping on Oxford Street as much as the next person, so I do the majority of mine virtually.
So without further ado, here are the best online stores for dresses that I can personally recommend. The selection might be smaller, but it’s definitely mighty.
