We Found All the Best Summer Dresses From & Other Stories, COS, H&M and More

Best high street summer dresses



Summer really is just round the corner, and that can only mean one thing: It's time to bring out the dresses. Whether you're more of a maxi fan, a minimalistic-dress devotee or prefer to stick to classic florals, there's so much on offer on the high street this year, and we've whittled down the offering to the 26 best buys around.

Comfy oversized dresses continue into 2022. Available in every fabric from muted linen to colour-pop cotton, this is the ultimate throw-and-go wardrobe hero. Just add suitably oversized sunnies and layered gold jewellery, and you're all set. We've also developed a soft spot for the T-shirt dress, which, thanks to COS, feels unexpectedly polished when worn knee-length and styled with chunky sliders and a straw tote.

On the other end of the spectrum is the return of the mini, particularly in shirt-dress form. We have our eye on & Other Stories's zesty lime iteration and Mango's retro printed version, which both look so premium considering their price tags. There are, of course, all the warm-weather classics that you would expect, like linen fabrics and florals, which never really go out of style. So whether you're looking for a new investment piece to add to your summer capsule or are simply in need of some inspiration to help edit what's already in your wardrobe, scroll down to see and shop the high-street dresses we're loving this season.

Oversized Dresses

So easy to throw on with sandals. 

The WMD (white midi dress) is always a winner. 

T-Shirt Dresses

Just add an oversized blazer and chunky sandals. 


This retro print gets our vote. 

Add a tangerine bag and trainers for daytime. 

Printed Dresses

Sustainable brand Mirla Beane is a brand to bookmark. 

Such a fun print for summer. 

You could wear this to a wedding, the races or any other occasion. 

Ghost is always a go-to for pretty prints.

Linen Dresses

If you don't like the creases you get from linen, opt for a linen blend.
