Last Bank Holiday weekend confirmed two things for us: Sunburn isn’t cute, and we’re low on summer dresses! So naturally, after a slathering of SPF, we spent the following days scouring the New in section at SilkFred for the most picnic-friendly offerings, whittling them down to just ten (that part was difficult.)
1. The dream cream
We don’t like to play favourites, but… It has pockets. The others didn’t stand a chance.
2. Fresh mint
What happens when you mix the colour of the season with the print of the year? £39 less in your account, probably. But this minty animal print number is worth it, no?
3. The long and the shirt of it
Summer workwear is hard. Correction: was hard, until we saw this cool slouchy shirt dress.
4. That’s a wrap on animal print
This wrap dress never met a beer garden it didn’t like. We have that in common.
5. Breezy, tiger
When it’s warm enough to get your legs out or arms out, but not both at the same time, this tiger-print neon midi dress is your guy.
6. In case of weddings
If your recent searches include ‘Willowy angel fairy type dresses’ we think we’ve found it…
7. When 2 become 1
This hummus-friendly wrap dress is picnic ready, and so are we.
8. Last animal print, promise
Think leopard print can’t be fancy? We need to introduce you to this midi dress from D.Anna…
9. Polka face
Nothing revolutionary about a polka dot dress for summer, but this button down midi with light blue spots does put an ocean-fresh take on the O.G monochrome.
10. All whitey then
The LWD has officially taken over the LBD as we approach summer. This deep V neck midi is set to feature in 70% of our Insta feed for next three months.
