One-shoulder dresses will take through summer into autumn.

Summer is the time to play by new rules. Our usual uniforms of straight-cut jeans with a t-shirt and knit go out of the window as we prep for hot weather, dressy outdoor events and major celebrations. Invest in a statement dress – this season our favourite is the one-shoulder midi dress. Mix up your accessories with each wear to solve all of your summer dressing problems.

The one-shoulder dress is the new cult summer dress silhouette. 

Whether you’re looking to beat the crowds with a dress that no one else will be wearing, or just like the idea of an effortless one-piece that ticks all of the boxes, then look no further than the one-shoulder midi. All of our favourite designers, from Self Portrait to Rejina Pyo and new label Les Rêveries, have iterations of the season’s must-have dress. Fresh, feminine, romantic florals soften the directional silhouette while long hemlines are elegant and versatile. Choose a block colour style and swap heels for flat leather sandals for daytime or holidaywear made easy.

As summer’s fun fades these dresses will look great with ankle or knee-high boots in autumnal shades of burgundy, chestnut and navy with a fine-knit turtleneck underneath. Invest now and wear all year long.
