1. Mini Dresses

The 90s called and they want their mini dresses back. But one thing’s for sure, this year they are certainly not getting them back. The mini dress is the dress style you’ll need to be snapping up this year, and the best part is that there’s a style for everyone. From cute itsy bitsy florals to sleeve details and bodycon options, there really is a mini dress out there to suit everyone’s style this summer, and we can’t wait to see you in them!

2. Lace Dresses

Now we might be gutted that event season is pretty much cancelled, but that won’t stop us from investing in elegant lace dresses. And as soon as a bit of normality resumes and those long awaited gatherings with families can take place, a lace dress is exactly what you’ll need to be wearing to celebrate the occasion.

From classic white lace to pastel pinks, a lace dress is the style you need in your wardrobe for that glow-up out of lockdown, and is perfect to have sitting pretty in your wardrobe ready for all those rescheduled events you’ll have to attend next year.

3. Strappy Dresses

Thin strapped dresses have made a full revival this year and we’re totally here for it. From barely there straps in slinky shapes that are perfect for a night out (one day…), to cute babydoll dresses, take inspo from Emily Ratajkowski – the queen of the strappy dress.

And not only are strappy dresses undeniably cute, but with extra time spent out enjoying the sun and dedicated tanning time, strappy dresses are perfect for keeping tan lines at a minimum - as if you needed anymore reasoning as to why they’re a dress style you need to add to your wardrobe…

4. Sleeve Details

We’re definitely still not over sleeve details, which is why a beautiful sleeve detail dress is exactly what you need this summer to update your wardrobe. From organza details to puff sleeves, a statement sleeve will do all the talking and requires minimal effort to wear.

The other great thing about a statement sleeve is that they look good on everyone, and it doesn’t get much better than that. Have we convinced you that this is the pretty dress style you need in your wardrobe yet?

But this year midis have had new season updates. From floral wrap dresses to tight bodycons and square neck details, whatever your style there is certainly a midi dress style out there for you this year.
