The Bold, Printed Maxi Dresses To Wear On Repeat All Hot Weather Long

Bright, fun and summery are all words to describe these frocks. These aren't for the lighthearted but they will keep you hooked for the season and the ones to come.

Pop your head into fast-fashion stores like Zara or Mango, and you’ll probably be able to spot a linen button down dress. You know, the one that quite literally everyone’s wearing, in different variations from thick straps to the puffiest of sleeves. It is almost as though it was quietly but unanimously declared that linen is the material of the summer.

Look, we get it. They’re pretty and breezy, two things that outweigh everything else when it comes to dressing in sticky, sweaty weather. But, we like to mix it up. We like to see what else is in store. We want much more than this linen-filled life. Dressing for a summer that goes beyond denim cut-offs and tank tops can be extremely tricky, but prints definitely make the process easier – the print itself is half the job done – and can be easily twisted for a variety of occasions.

We’re fully aware the downsides of wearing prints. Sure, people might notice when you wear them again and again, but if your favourite street style stars proof that it is absolutely okay to re-wear pieces, you’re fine. Plus, changing up the accessories will get you more wears out of one dress. Strappy heels, basket bags or even over a swimsuit are just a few examples of how you can shake it up. Below, shop all the best ones of the season.
