At Gather&See we absolutely love a good dress. A good piece that you can just slip on - dresses are some of the most important pieces in our wardrobe and of course come into their own as the weather warms up. So as we embark upon a new season here are our top 9 dress picks for spring and summer. From occasion-wear to beachwear and everything in between, there really is something for everyone but with one thing in common - they are all ethically and sustainably produced. Delve right in...
1. The All Rounder - The Astrid Dress
This dress is an absolute beauty. Made from a high quality organic cotton featuring broderie anglaise detailing, a maxi length and flattering cap sleeves. She can be dressed up or down depending on your mood and is available in black or white.
2. The Summer Nights Dress - Moksha Kimono
These dress could have been made for tropical nights. In a vibrant green and blue silk it is cool and comfortable but packs a serious punch thanks to the wrap shape and deep v front.
3. The English Summer Rose Dress - Eva Dress
This dress has some serious Bridgerton vibes going. Think empire line, florals and even a couple of bows thrown in there. Perfect for summer garden parties.
4. The Ultimate Beach Dress - Syros
To be honest anything by A Perfect Nomad could fit the bill here - all beautiful flowing natural linens in earthy tones. But Syros, with its low back and dramatic train has to be one of our our all time faves.
5. The Undressy Dress - Brodie Dress
There is something just so cool about this shirt dress that we think will appeal to people who don't usually do dresses. It has a loose fit, decent length sleeves (always a good thing!) and the grid print makes just the right statement.
6. The Picture Perfect Dress - Short Sleeve Shirred Dress
This dress is so flattering - the shirred bodice tucks you in a bit whist the fuller skirt balances the fluted sleeve. Just a touch of skin shown at the back plus it has pockets - always a bonus for us. Choose from navy or cream.
7. The Wear Me Forever White Dress - The Fairy Dress
We will forever be sold on white dresses for summer but we think the brilliantly named The Fairy Dress is a real classic you will come back to again and again. The loose fit and pretty embroidered neckline gives it a vintage feel.
8. The Wedding Guest Dress - Mabel Dress
Damson Madder always do a good events dress and this summer's Mabel Dress is no exception. With it's pastel colours, maxi shape and removable collar it is super sweet on the eye.
9. The Summer Work Dress - Etta Shirt Dress
Black and white gingham will always be a winner for us but this shirt dress also features a sharp contrast collar and belt which makes it smart enough for work whilst also being on trend.
