So, you might have seen on my Instagram stories recently that I talked about doing a weekly Wednesday blog post about fashion trends, news and the best buys out there right now as a little extra to my usual weekly Saturday post about anything us girls chat about. So here it is!
With the amazing weather we’ve had in the UK over the past couple of weeks it’s probably time we put away our thick comfy joggers and get out our favourite comfy dresses. Comfort being the main factor obviously!
I’ve definitely been wearing floaty comfy dresses (to hide how much food I’ve eaten in lockdown!) for staying at home…
The good news is that there are so many amazing, gorgeous Summer dresses on the high street right now.
I’m not a huge advocate for fast fashion (as you may already know from previous posts) and I have a kind of hatred for badly made garments and horrendously cheap scratchy fabrics (you know the kind I mean; we’ve all had them in our wardrobe from time to time). But you can find some really great affordable styles on the high street without compromising too much on the fabric.
My go to’s are H&M who not only have their ‘Conscious’ range but are also great at doing cotton basics. Topshop who often get it right in terms of ‘silky feeling polyester’ (not exactly luxurious but we’re not all millionaires unfortunately), Arket and & Other Stories who, I mean, need I say more? They are just KILLING IT over the past couple of years.
Mostly, I feel you can never really go wrong with cotton. I find it’s always safest when buying online (sometimes buying affordable online can go completely tits up and you end up with something that looks NOTHING like what you ordered, again we’ve ALL been there) and cotton is such a great fabric for the Summer as it’s breathable and can withstand heat, among lots of other properties but hey I’m not your GCSE textiles teacher!
So these are my favourite comfy summer dresses for right now (click on each picture to go through to the brands’ website)…
FYI Topshop has 30% off dresses at the moment so if you are going to buy one from them then now’s the time (this is so NOT an ad FYI).
So this has totally got me excited for Summer and FINGERS CROSSED girls that life can go a little bit back to normal by then!
Lots of love xxx
Ps, I hope you liked this week’s first mid-week fashion trends, buys & news post! If you have any ideas about what you want to see, maybe you’re looking for the BEST pair of denim shorts to invest in right now for example, then please let me know and I’ll do the scouring of online brands for you (I know I’m so kind).
I know, personally, that I love reading articles, magazines and blogs that have brought together pieces from lots of different brands onto one visual page. It’s just so much easier to look at and visually quite exciting; it feels like shopping without actually GOING shopping!
