Don’t be fooled into thinking that summer is leaving us yet, there are still plenty of warm sunny days to come! Now is the time for summer frocks – whether they’re chucked on over your togs on the way to the beach, worn to a BBQ, or dressed up for a special occasion. Here’s a few we’ve found both online and in store.
Light, floaty and perfect for hot summer days, these dresses are great for slipping over your bathing suit on your way to the beach or pairing with sneakers for catching up with friends during the day or with sandals for an evening BBQ. Dress them up or dress them down – pieces like this are important over summer because they’re so versatile and can be worn many different ways (great when you’re travelling too!).
