With a heatwave getting ready to arrive next week, I’m getting more and more excited about the prospect of wearing my summer dresses.
I can’t be the only one who has an influx of weddings, holidays and parties to prepare for this summer. While the season isn’t quite here yet, it’s never too early to start planning – and planning I have been.
As we approach a new season, I for one will be wearing dresses non-stop.
They always seem to save the day when you can’t find anything else to wear, when you need to pull a look together in an instant, when you can no longer fit into your favourite jeans or when it’s just too dang hot outside to wear anything else.
On top of all that, they’re so easy to wear. You don’t have to waste time mixing and matching pieces; literally throw one on and you’re good to go, saving you those precious minutes in bed each morning.
Whether you’re looking for an unstructured, floaty, ankle-length do-it-all vibe, or prefer a more polished form fitting number that showcases a bit more skin, we’ve done the hard work for you and whittled it down to 19 of the best summer dresses to buy in 2022. You’re welcome.
