When it comes to popular spring dresses, it’s fair to say there’s no shortage of them this year. With so many fresh new dress trends stealing the limelight, though, it can be tricky to decipher which styles are actually worth investing in. The S/S 22 runways saw Christian Siriano, Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney put cut-out iterations to the top of our wish lists, while Valentino, Rejina Pyo and Prabal Gurung backed bold citrus brights, another style firmly on our lists. But while we’re fully invested in trying out a slashed frock for a brunch or a bright-orange, lime or lemon iteration for any upcoming occasion in our now-busy diaries, there’s one brand that always brings us back to reality with styles we can wear each and every day. Enter Totême.
Who What Wear U.S. Editor in Chief Kat Collings proves why a Totême dress is a forever buy with the brand's smocked version.
Stockholm-based brand Totême has gained quite the reputation as a cult label over the past few years especially. In fact, we haven’t been able to scroll for two minutes on Instagram throughout winter without seeing that shearling jacket, scarf jacket or striped sweater. It’s clear, Totême knows how to create an It item. But with a classic, timeless and everyday aesthetic, it’s all about those key pieces that’ll work beyond the month you buy it in. And now is the best time to shop the brand’s dresses.
While a Totême dress may not be as easy to spot in a crowd as, say, a Cecilie Bahnsen frock, fashion people will be able to recognise the distinctive fuss-free silhouettes that are championed by the brand across all seasons. Here, we show you the Totême dresses that’ll bring you endless amounts of joy for spring and beyond.
