Summer is the best time for dresses. I’m not that picky when it comes to dresses, if anything they’re my weakness and have filled up 90% of my wardrobe space.
Luckily, I go for styles in lightweight fabrics like cotton or linen, with bright prints or bold colours. So, they’re not that bulky and leave a bit of room for my other clothes.

When I shop for new dresses, I have a few go-to brands like & Other Stories or Top Shop, but it’s only recently that I discovered River Island’s dress collection. And I was missing out.
River Island has a great selection of dresses. Many of their dresses have a way to make a statement without sacrificing elegant simplicity dresses.
The high street brands have designs that offer the best of both worlds: eye-catching prints that stand out, combined with simple, understated designs that keep the overall look clean and modern.
I am in love with their maxi dresses, which have a flowing silhouette that skims the body. You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with sandals, especially for the summer.
If you’re like me and haven’t explored River Island’s dress collection yet, I am telling you to start scrolling through them now. Because I’m sure you’ll find your next favourite summer dress there.
