Without a doubt, 2018 was the year of the dress, and 2019 is certainly following suit—at least, that appears to be the case, as influencers just won't stop flaunting gorgeous frocks. Key themes this year include gingham, checks and plenty of florals. On the whole, the silhouettes have been on the slinkier side or big and voluminous—there are few that have been in between. But what's certain is that they're all fabulous.
Below, you'll find 18 beautiful dresses, all of which we've have been given the seal of approval by multiple sartorially-blessed women. The best part is, even though they're proving incredibly popular, they're all still in stock. Though we doubt that'll be the case for long. From the latest offering from cult brand Réalisation, the Kitri dress that constantly sells out, as well as the Zara frock that we know fashion insiders love (no, not that dress), keep scrolling to see the biggest It dresses of 2019.
Style Notes: Ganni's green check isn't just reserved for this midi dress, there's also a mini version too. It's ideal for a casual summer dress but we can see us wearing this well into the autumn and winter with a pair of ankle boots and a roll-neck underneath.
Style Notes: Tanya Burr isn't the only one to have cottoned on to Réalisation's latest silhouette, the Allegra, as we've also spotted Pandora Sykes in this new dress style too. The perfect summer holiday frock.
Style Notes: This green dress has featured on our Insta feed all summer. While it's pretty voluminous, it's made of silk and very loose, so it's ideal for those who want to stay cool in the heat but covered up.
Style Notes: Yes, Zara has had more than one hit dress this summer. While that dress was seen everywhere and continues to stay popular, fashion insiders—such as Alexis Foreman—alerted us to this white poplin one.
Style Notes: Another dress that we've seen on plenty of fashion Instagram accounts is this red gingham frock from Sleeper. The off-the-shoulder sleeves make it the sort of dress you want to wear while eating baguettes and jam in Provence.
Style Notes: Owning a Réalisation dress is basically an influencer rite of passage, and no one's collection of them is stronger than Lucy's. So it's little wonder she was the first to wear the brand's new Alba frock. We predict a sellout…
Style Notes: Karina always finds the best pieces on the high street, and, of course, she was the first to snap up this COS midi with a gathered waist and square neckline. Wear it with a boxy blazer for the office or pair it with strappy sandals and a clutch bag for after dark.
Style Notes: Seeing as it's been worn by practically every influencer of note, we're incredibly surprised this dress is still in stock. We implore you to buy it now, or else face the inevitable disappointment when it does go...
Style Notes: Monsoon is having a bit of a moment, with dresses serving as the brand's star. With its tie-straps, square neckline, and tortoiseshell buttons, this linen midi has gone straight to the top of our wish lists.
Style Notes: Ghost's Jenna dress was undoubtedly one of 2018's must-haves, and the brand's new Alice midi looks destined for the same success. We've seen so many influencers wearing it, but Sarah steals the show with her coordinating yellow headband.
Style Notes: No, you're not seeing double—this is the mighty Evangelie Smyrniotaki and Tiffany Hsu who've both fallen for Self-Portrait's yellow floral minidress. Indeed, with their combined influencer, we're surprised this dress isn't being flogged for four times its RRP on eBay right now.
