Lime green dresses will make summer arrive early (and we’ve found the best mini, midi and maxi styles to shop now)

Posted by for Fashion

Meet the zesty lime green dresses you can rely on to make you feel more summery, no matter the weather. 

When the likes of Versace and Bottega Veneta both put a certain shade on the runway for spring/summer 2021, you can rest assured it’s set to be big news. This is exactly the kudos lime green dresses gained as soon as models stepped out wearing the zesty shade. Hardly a wallflower moment, the bright colour screams summer from all angles. 

With the innate ability to transform any style, when you invest in a lime green dress you’re also investing in uplifting your mood. Breathing freshness into humble mini, midi and maxi dresses, it’s all about feeling those summery vibes as soon as you put them on. 

Need some inspiration to see how to wear the bold, statement colour IRL? Model Isabelle has kept the look 90s with a spaghetti strap slip dress and flip flops. With the weather as consistent as our mood lately, of course the UK may not allow us to wear full summery outfits just yet. But this is where the knitted dress comes in. 

Style influencer Nnenna proves how you can wear the summery lime green shade already with a long sleeved knit dress. Whatever the weather, lime green frocks are here to take your outfits straight into summer territory – from Finery London’s puff-sleeved tea dress to H&M’s smocked style, these are the lime green dresses that’ll kickstart your summer wardrobe.
