Five essential dresses for your summer holiday

Five essential dresses for your summer holiday

We will all be taking a dress with us on holiday this summer; in fact, we are more than likely to be taking several. Let’s take a look at five versatile styles.

Maxi dresses

Maxi dresses are a must-have, as they can take you from pool to party. Heels or flats, sleeves or strapless, a pretty maxi dress is the ideal cover up to keep you cool and looking your best. Just add sunglasses. Year after year, a maxi is a must-have for your summer holiday. Accessorise with some statement earrings and you are good to go!

The Bardot

Effortlessly glamorous and feminine, the Bardot style is easy to wear for a relaxed lunch with friends or a casual walk in the sunshine. Add an oversized straw bag to hold all your belongings and you will have room for everything, what’s more, with the off-the-shoulder styling, you will be free from strap marks!

Five essential dresses for your summer holiday

Cami straps

Hugely popular in the 90s, the cami dress has stood the test of time and is great for a holiday. You can layer it for cooler mornings or to wear out in the evening when the temperature drops or dress it up or down depending on your style and the occasion. Plain or print, the cami has a place in every holiday suitcase.

The tea dress

Another classic, the tea dress offers effortless style and a flattering shape for almost everyone. This is another style that can be dressed up or down and is ideal for those who like to wear heels; for example, it is great with an elegant kitten heel or a wedge sandal.

Skater style

Another super-flattering style, a good skater dress will nip in at the waist and offer a gorgeous flared skirt. It can feel quite retro, so accessorise it to add or detract from this.
