The 12 Dresses That Have Our Seal of Approval This Summer

While the weather can't make up its mind, we're resolute when it comes to this season: Summer is for dresses. And it seems that everyone is wearing them, even if it's just to chill on the sofa. Of course, at Who What Wear, we've spotted certain styles proving particularly popular in fashion circles. 

Below, you'll find 12 beautiful dresses, all of which have been given the seal of approval by multiple stylish women. The best part is even though they're incredibly sought-after, they're largely still in stock. And if you're watching your budget right now, then perhaps these dresses will remind you of the already-fabulous ones you own that you need to re-wear this season. 

From the latest offering from cult brand Rixo to the Stine Goya dress that dominated fashion month back in February as well as the Topshop frock that we know fashion insiders love, keep scrolling to see the best dresses to fall for this summer.
