I'll save you the chat about the weather, but let's just say that finally, all the summer dresses in my wardrobe can get a wearing without needing a jumper worn over the top. However, if you're in a situation where you're unable to find the perfect summer dress (hey—sometimes this happens), then might I direct you by way of & Other Stories? The brand, which is the sister store to H&M, always turns out pretty yet never boring frocks and we're not the only ones who've noticed.
Brittany Bathgate and Who What Wear UK columnist Marissa Cox of Rue Rodier have both posted about a super-minimal black linen dress that's already a wardrobe staple. Earlier this month, we spotted a floral mini with puffed sleeves that is still very popular on Instagram, so it's worth snapping up before it sells out. Then there's a floral-print dress that looks perfect for festival season (Laura Whitemore wore it for Glastonbury, no less).
And finally, there are two dresses Who What Wear UK editors are loving. Shopping editor Joy Montgomery has been wearing a fabulous green checked dress, and Who What Wear U.S. EIC Kat Collings has styled a yellow and black floral midi with a smart blue jacket. The best place for high-street summer dresses? I think so. Keep scrolling to see them styled and shop them too.
