By now, you may know my standpoint when it comes to dresses. It's something of a love affair. I've been combing the web in search of the best affordable dresses, and to my delight, I've been inundated with beautiful, timeless styles that truly defy their price tags.
Some of my most-worn dresses are former high-street finds I've worn and cherished for many years. They still have a place in my current wardrobe, and every year, I look forward to being reunited with them come the spring-summer wardrobe switch-over.
When it comes to shopping on the high street, or anywhere for that matter, I adhere to certain criteria to ensure a mindful purchase. This includes the composition, finishing, wearability and (most importantly) durability. The British high street is excelling at the moment. I'm impressed with the increased use of natural fibres and considered, timeless designs, which are one step closer to sustainability.
Re-wearability is particularly apt for summer fashion as we're often introduced to reiterations of former styles that sit comfortably within summer capsules. Both high-street and independent brands have released summer dresses that look well beyond their price points. It's in the finishes, expansive materials, quality yarns and shaping. I tend to gravitate towards drapey dresses in midi and maxi lengths that you can waft in the sunshine and wear for most occasions. To see some stunning affordable dresses for women that come in at under £150, keep on scrolling.
