From mini and midi to floaty and floral, whether you’re looking for a new silhouette to style or ways to re-vamp the classics, Adele Petty is here with her dose of dress styling ideas just in time for summer!

Midi Dress

The Summer Mini Dress

While shorter hems may not be ground-breaking for summer dresses, injecting different fabrics and adding layers into your looks are sure to turn some trendspotting heads this season. When it comes to fabrics, the linen resurgence is well and truly underway for SS23! Style our linen-blend dresses with basic tees and oversized denim jackets for off-duty vibes or dress them up with a blazer and heels for those sun-soaked evenings.

For finishing touches, we’re leaving it in your hands! Are you picking printed bags or will woven accessories be your winner?

The Staple Summer Midi Dress

When dressing feels tricky, we instinctively reach for basics and fortunately the same rules apply for summer dresses. A flattering basic midi dress is something that everyone should have in their wardrobe all year round. Their versatile length makes them the perfect option to add to your workwear wardrobe when styled with ballet flats or heels but they lend themselves perfectly to your holiday wardrobe too.

Adele styles our trending ribbed racer midi dress with a clashing-coloured shirt and accessories for a casual take on dopamine dressing. Our top tip for midi dress styling? Opt for a flatform trainer or a chunky sandal to elongate your silhouette.

The Printed Summer Dress

The change in seasons brings a free, fun and fearless approach to fashion but with the warmer weather, fuss-free looks are a must-have. The perfect piece to tick every summer outfit box? A patterned summer dress. While Adele has opted for a ditsy floral number, head in store to shop our range of midi, mini and maxi printed dresses whatever your summer schedule looks like. From floaty angel sleeve midi dresses perfect for wedding guest outfits to puff sleeve, tiered maxi dresses that should be top of your summer holiday packing list, the punchier the print the better!
