The 7 Most Timeless, Ageless Dress Styles Everyone Should Own

The heat wave sweeping the UK has us dreaming of the ocean breeze in Ibiza while we're actually crammed into someone's armpit on the central line. This said, we've had to do a serious revamp to avoid melting in the heat. A go-to dress makes the perfect frock to wear to the market and pub on a Saturday, and can make an easy transition to the office when paired with the right accessories.

With so many gorgeous dresses out there, it's important to familiarise yourself with the styles that will stand the test of time, and find out which ones are best suited to your personal style and taste. And, whilst perfect for this sweltering heat, a dress makes the perfect wardrobe companion all year round. Just pair with opaque tights, chic socks or knee-high boots for a look that will walk you comfortably through autumn and even into winter.

Have a scroll through the dress styles we're certain will be in fashion for decades to come, and shop the pieces that suit your taste the most.

Next up, the ultimate autumn/winter trend report.
