If ever there's a fail-safe wardrobe winner, the summer dress is it. I've found myself buying more and more dresses lately as they're just so easy. Slip on a pair of flat sandals, your favourite sunnies, a denim jacket and you're good to go.

Or you could get this, instead.

Equally as chic (and a bit like my Isabel Marant one from Vestiaire, regular readers might remember - I just squeaked with joy at the memory of it somewhere with my summer clothes at my parent's house). It too, has pockets.

Look, I'm not sponsored by Next or anything, I just really like a lot of things there at the moment. I'm (almost) tempted by a pair of denim dungarees in there, too...
But anyway, this dress is amazing. A flirty drop waist, teamed with a loose fit which makes you look slimmer than you are, plus a bit of a Gucci Cruise print going on: I love it. For those that just don't 'do' yellow: it comes in black, too.

Okay so WITBlog found it first...but I bought this last week and, if you're planning on going away this summer, you should probably buy it, too. Just add a straw trilby and Birkenstocks.
If you're not a fan of shoulders and bare decolletage...then I apologise now. But spaghetti straps and off shoulder tops/dresses are a thing. Not only is this probably the only dress you'll ever find in Whistles for under £100, it's also the coolest. This shot is styled to perfection: take note.
Ever the minimalist, I love this dress for so many reasons: it will go with everything, it will hide a multitude of sins and it's not actually denim - it's jersey. The ultimate city-break dress - it won't crease and will look great with trainers.
