New Look has been a go-to for us for many years. When we’re looking for a pick-me-up, it never fails to offer on-trend and affordable pieces and we have plenty of their summer dresses hanging in our wardrobes.
This year their offering of cute dresses doesn’t disappoint. With a collection of over 200 pretty printed frocks, from smocked to midi dresses, they have it all.
Fun fact: they have 800 new products uploaded to their site each week, so you’re bound to find just what you need (or want).
But we know how the abundance of choices can make you feel overwhelmed. So we took it upon ourselves to examine them all to give you a list of the best of the best.
Whether you like florals or animal print, short or long sleeves, they have a dress for you (including that sell-out gingham dress). Here are 19 of the best.
