From mini and midi to floaty and floral, whether you’re looking for a new score to style or ways to refresh the classics, Adele Petty is here with her dose of dress sense—just in time for summer.

Midi Dress

The Summer Mini Dress

Okay: shorter hems aren't groundbreaking for summer dresses. But bringing in different fabrics and adding layers to your looks will turn trendspotting heads this season. For fabrics, linen is the star 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 sultry evenings.

The Must-Have Summer Midi Dress

When dressing gets tricky, we always go back to basics. Luckily the same goes for summer dresses. A flattering basic midi dress is something everyone should have in their closet all year. Its versatile length makes it the perfect add to your workwear, styled with ballet flats or heels. But it works great for your vacay style, too.

Midi Dress

Adele styled our trending ribbed racer midi dress with a clashing shirt and accessories for a casj take on serotonin style. Our top hack for styling midis? Go for flatform sneakers or chunky sandals to elongate your shape.

The Printed Summer Dress

The fresh season brings a free, fun, fierce fashion vibe. But when the temps soars, fuss-free looks are essential. The piece that checks all the summer style boxes? A great printed dress. While Adele went for a mini floral, head in store to shop our big collection of mini, midi and maxi printed dresses so you can catch all the great picks before they're gone. From floaty angel sleeve midis for weddings to puffed sleeve tiered maxis to top your vacay packing list, the stronger the print the better.
