Summer Solstice 2019 AKA the longest day of the year is here meaning one thing and one thing only, it’s officially summer! Whether you’ve already been on your getaway (and are planning a second) or your big holiday is just around the corner, one thing’s for sure, a new wardrobe is needed. From maxi dresses to evening dresses, this year it’s all about the slip dress. Don’t believe us? We’ve got the five summer dresses your holiday needs – don’t be surprised if they all slip into your suitcase… 

The Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses and summer go together like sangria and olives. The dress to take you from a day at the pool to an evening stroll around the marina, this red slip maxi dress is going to make you feel all kinds of sassy and will definitely give the salsa dancing lady emoji a run for her money. We’ll be throwing over a bikini for a sexy take on a beach cover-up or with barely there sandals and statement earrings. Senorita? Yeah you are.

The Beach Dress 

Holidays may be all about the swimwear, but you’ve got to look cute getting to the beach, right? A beach dress must-pack in any carry on. Made from lightweight rayon, it’s perfect for stashing in your beach bag while you lounge under the sun or throwing on to go and top up your mimosa. With a spot print, frill hem and button detail, it ticks not one but three of our boxes.  Wear with wedges and a sun hat or layer over a t-shirt and sandals.

The Cowl Neck Dress

If you’re thinking that floral dress you turn to every summer is in need of an update, you’re probably right. Enter the printed cowl neck slip dress. Eye-catching and super-flattering with a cute O-ring belt detail, it’s the dress to wear for a day trip exploring that turns into an evening watching the sunset sipping cocktails. We’ll be wearing with chunky sandals, slick black sunnies and some oversized silver hoop earrings.

The Embroidered Dress 

Are you even on holiday if you don’t wear a white dress? This embroidered slip dress is going to be the one you save until the last night of holiday to really show off that tan. (Though it’s not the one to be worn when you’re tucking into a tapas banquet –Patatas Bravas stains, people.)  Perfect for boat trips to spot dolphins or discover a new island, wear with flatform sandals and take a denim jacket to throw over your shoulders when the sea breeze gets too much. 

The Little Black Dress

Urban legends may have it that wearing black on holiday is a no-no, but we say hell yes. Super chic and a holiday wardrobe staple in its own right, a little black dress is one we’ll most definitely be packing, thank you. The ultimate AM to PM piece, wear with chunky trainers and a pastel denim jacket for day and amp up the sauce levels by night with animal print sandals and gold layered jewellery.
