If you close your eyes and think of summertime, the first things that pop into your mind are probably moments of easy, breezy fun! From fruit cocktails and delicious barbecues to lazy lounging on a hammock and long walks on the beach. With the long year that’s come before this, a taste of summer represents all the things that we’ve been longing to have.
Treat yourself to a little retail therapy. If you’re already daydreaming about your next vacation, then what better way to get into the summer mood than shopping online for some summer dresses?
Here’s three of our favourite unique summer dresses, guaranteed to brighten up your wardrobe with a dash of fun. Vacation vibes are just a few clicks away!
1. A maxi dress with a twist on classic batik
Batik is one of the oldest fabric techniques in the world. We love it for its rich heritage that truly makes it a treasure of Southeast Asia. It’s not just any one kind of pattern, but a craft that’s been passed down for generations. Far from being something that’s just traditional, it’s a nice way to incorporate interesting cultural motifs into your wardrobe.
There’s many vibrant designs of batik to choose from that will elevate your look beyond the ordinary. This Sleeveless Batik Maxi Dress features a fresh and sophisticated take, with a bold blue reminiscent of tranquil ocean waves.
2. A hand-painted dress that makes floral fab
It’s time to embrace the floral fantasy. When you buy women’s dresses online, the word ‘floral’ might conjure up images of drab granny prints. However, the right kind of print can easily be fab! As a pattern, florals are truly versatile — it’s all about the way you see them. Floral designs are back in a big way, having become one of the biggest trends of the year.
There’s just so many flowers to be inspired by; one of our favourites is the tropical orchid. Just a glance at this Nusa Dua Strap Dress and you’ll feel ready to whisk off on an island escapade.
3. A dress inspired by tropical food for your tropical mood
If you like to get down and funky, then get a bright and bold print to match. Tropical fruits provide some of the funkiest inspiration around. From the boldness of dragon fruits to the quirkiness of bananas, there’s no doubt that these are fruits that stand out. That’s why they’ve got us absolutely inspired.
The Miranda Pineapple Print Dress is a fruity pink dream, equal parts feminine and fun. You’ll be bringing the party wherever you go.
