THE ULTIMATE CASUAL DRESS GUIDE FOR BRITISH WEATHER

KENDALL BLACK SHORT T SHIRT DRESS
As most of you know I live in England and usually I'm running at least ten minutes late for most obligations, for that reason my style is very minimalist. I tend to always gravitate towards dresses that will pair well with ankle boots or trainers and tights or no tights in the summer. It is that easy, if you're someone who likes a more casual approach some days here are some great dresses that can look great just worn alone with a cool pair of shoes and even better with some extra effort. Don't forget to comment below your favourite pieces. First is this really simple slouchy fit Kendall T-shirt dress (£21) with a pocket over the left breast. I love to wear this on train journeys because it is so comfy and not too tight but also just the right amount of loose to look slouchy and not shapeless. I particularly like the short sleeves, allowing most of my arms to get some sunlight and a nice tan whilst providing coverage for my upper arms which is an area of my body I like to cover.

BLUE WOVEN BARDOT DRESS
This Blue Woven Stripe Tassel Belt Bardot Dress (£18) is such a summery dress and the different shades of blue just shout Grecian vacation to me, the colours are loud enough that the dress doesn't require any extra accessories. I would personally pair it with my favourite metallic silver footbed sandals that are the comfiest shoes in the world, but you could pair it with nude heels, converse or your favourite sandals as well. The exposed shoulder allows you to douse yourself with your favourite highlight as well, win win.

KIM HEATHER BLACK DISTRESSED SWEATER DRESS
Another of my favourite black pieces, can you tell I really like to wear black? Is the Kim Heather Black Distressed Sweater Dress (£30). I never thought I could be someone that would casually wear an intentionally ripped dress but I love the style. The medium size is quite oversized on me so I would recommend if you are a size 8-12 to get the small. I personally like the longer length and looser fit and it looks really great with sheer tights and opaque boots and I will definitely style it with patterned tights if I want to add some detail to my look for the evenings. For summer, I actually think this dress would look really cool with a statement boot, there are so many great colourful boots on the high street right now. 

MIRACLE WINE LACE UP SWEATER
This Miracle Wine Lace Up Sweater (£33) screams autumn to me, technically we are still in April and as such April showers are a very real thing and this is the perfect sweater to help you feel cosy when it feels nothing like summer and barely even spring. This also comes in a variety of shades and I highly recommend the grey option, the lace up design on the shoulders is such a cool element of this piece and I get complimented on it a lot. I wear it as a dress, but you could wear it as a sweater as well. As a dress it is quite short so I do tend to pair it with tights and a pair of high heeled boots. 

V NECK POLKA DOT DRESS
This V Neck Polka Dot Black Dress (£20) is ridiculously cute from the spotted design to the adorable little tie sleeves. Again in summer, I like my arms to tan but I am quite insecure about the top of my arms so like to keep them covered as much as possible. For this reason, I love short sleeved dresses like this, especially if they come in black and a cute little print. This would look good in so many different ways and would be suitable attire all year round I think. I can imagine wearing it with white trainers in the summer and some oversized sunglasses or layered with a chunky cable knit sweater, thick tights and heeled ankle boots in winter. 

RED STRIPED RIPPED BODYCON DRESS
I love the style of this Ribbed Bodycon Dress (£15). Normally for casual every day wear I like a loose fit and I tend to steer away from bodycon styles completely. It just makes me really self conscious, but the horizontal stripes are actually quite slimming and I think this red striped dress would look great as a layering piece peeking under a black coat and paired simply with some old trainers in the summer. It just looks very effortless but still fun and colourful, which is needed as I am someone who is constantly drawn to black clothes as they require little thinking on my part.

Thank you so much for reading this little haul and very casual style piece, I would love to know what your approach is to style. For me, in the summer especially when it gets really hot on those rare days I want to be as comfortable and cool as possible. Leave a comment below and have a great week next week. This post was done in collaboration with Shop Tobi. Check back on Wednesday for my next post, thank you for reading. Take care. 

What is your go-to outfit in the summer?

  1. Dresses that one can wear in the summer but also pair with boots and tights when it's cold are the best. I really love the bardot dress and the polka dot one, they're so pretty and perfect for summer. The black sweater dress is super cute too. xx Coco Bella Blog

  4. The first one and the striped bodycon are my kind of style. When I was living in London, one of my favourite pieces to wear when I'm out in the city was wide-legged pants like culottes! Comfy and casual :)
