10 High Street Dresses You Need This Summer

From holidays to weddings, summer requires a repertoire of dresses. And right now we’re looking to Warehouse to get kitted out for the season ahead, with the high street favourite’s selection of statement maxis and pared-back midis ticking all the boxes. From glamorous lace designs to wow-factor pink pieces, here are the ten styles that will keep you covered for every occasion…
 

Classic Navy Shift

You can’t go wrong with a navy lace shift, with its grown-up structure ideal for work and smart functions alike. Add heels and a simple clutch for a day-to-night look.

Bonded Lace Midi Dress, £44.25 (was £59)

 

Pink Broderie 

This pink broderie midi is a must for all those with spring weddings to go to. Add statement gold accessories for a modern twist.

Linear Dress, £55.30 (was £79)

 

Cold-Shoulder Maxi

Proving that off-the-shoulder dresses are still big news, this black maxi style has us planning our holiday wardrobe. Add an oversized hat and heels for a glamorous beach party look.

Deep Bardot Maxi Dress, £32

 

 

Velvet Slip

Velvet is back, but this time around opt for pastel shades for a more seasonal look. We love the ruffle detailing and spaghetti straps elevating this slip. Simply layer over a tee for a cool off-duty vibe.

Crushed Velvet Cami Dress, £49

 

Red Florals

Red floral dresses were propelled onto the fashion scene last year by the likes of Réalisation Par, and this Warehouse offering reminds us why we loved them. Both feminine and cool, add a chunky belt to this cinched style for a simple work-to-play effect.

Floating Floral Midi Dress, £55

 

 

Structured Shift

Another navy shift, we love the crepe fabric and belt detailing taking this formal style down a notch. Make like Chiara Ferragni and add cool girl accessories for an unexpected daytime edit.

Cotton D Ring Dress, £55

 

Off-The-Shoulder Beach Chic

Another cold-shoulder hero piece, this style is ideal for throwing on over bikinis for long lazy lunches. We The People Style teams hers with espadrilles and an oversized straw bag for a chic beach look.

Off-Shoulder Dress, £29

 

Pale Blue Lace

This pale blue midi style is giving us Self-Portrait vibes – we love the intricate laser-cut floral design. Wear casually à la Sincerely Jules with white sneakers, or add luxe gold heels and jewellery for a glamorous event-ready finish.

Premium Lace Sleeve Dress, £132 (was £165)

 

Hot Pink Hero

Fuchsia is this summer’s hottest shade so this ruffle-bottomed Warehouse piece ticks the trend box. Layer with a chunky grey knit and brogues for a seasonal twist on workwear.

Ruffle Hem Dress, £36.75 (was £49)

 

Bold Canary Yellow

Canary yellow is another designer favourite for SS17. This midi dress has the wow factor. Keep accessories minimal and wear for everything from garden parties to vacation dinners for an eye-catching look.

Tie Detail Cotton Dress, £39
