If there’s one thing we Who What Wear editors know about, it’s where to find good dresses. It might not strike you as a mastermind subject, but nevertheless, it is something that we’re asked about endlessly, and you, our readers, are always requesting more and more stories about dresses. In the summer, a dress is arguably the easiest thing to wear, as it can be light and comfortable yet requires little thought when it comes to styling.
This means that there are certain dress trends that peak in popularity every single summer, such as white linen or beach-style dresses. But this year, there are six dress trends, in particular that are proving popular, and with restrictions lifted around international travel, we have plenty of styles in mind for a far-flung holiday.
All of the dresses below have a classic feel. However, there are small tweaks that make them feel special or a little different, adding new elements to your existing summer wardrobe. There are cut-outs and backless details, plenty of colour, and silhouettes so varied that there really is something for everyone. Keep scrolling to see the six summer dress trends we’re excited to wear this year.
