The cult 90s brand has had a makeover and is back and better than before.

From a recent sell-out collaboration with Laura Bailey to another sought-after partnership with Marks & Spencer, there’s just something about cult 90s brand Ghost and its ability to make clothes plainly vanish from the virtual shelves.

Originally a dress-centric brand, Ghost was founded in 1984 by designer Tanya Sarne and has experienced a renaissance in recent years, in part due to a string of celebrity endorsements including Carrie Symonds and Holly Willoughby. And the figures don’t lie: sales on Ghost’s website were up 95% in 2017 compared to 2014.

In fact, should you currently be perusing the high street for a new fanciful frock, one that’s perfect for the summertime, Ghost is the perfect place to look. Its iterations are summer-friendly, infinitely wearable and primed for making a subtle, yet no less impactful, sartorial statement, which is why we’ve rounded up the Ghost dresses we’re adding to our baskets to buy now and wear forever.
