It might seem like the summer, and warmer weather is still quite a way away, but the truth is, this weather and those lovely long summer days are closer than you may realise. 

This means that if you want to make sure that you are feeling your stylish self, you will need to start thinking about updating your summer wardrobe. 

To help you to look fabulous, we have put together our guide to some of the most affordable and on-trend SS21 summer dresses for you to buy.

Open Back Dresses

There is something deliciously summery about an open back dress. Not only does it give you the chance to show off some skin, but it also helps to top up your tan.

Whilst you can get open back summer dresses that are completely open, this particular animal print mini dress from ASOS has a strappy back, which you might need to be careful with when it comes to those tan lines.

Puff Sleeve Dresses

Just because you may spend the summer feeling floaty in a dress, that doesn’t mean that you can’t try and make a bold style impact. We love puff sleeve dresses because they are dramatic whilst still being feminine and flirty. This midi dress from Next features not only puff sleeves but also a shirred body detail. Best of all, you can rock it in the daytime or the evening, just by changing up your shoes and accessories. 


You may think that summer means bright colours, and whilst this is true, it doesn’t mean that you have to forget your love of monochrome. We adore how beautiful the contrast of black and white dresses can look against a stunning blue sky and plenty of sunshine. If you want to bring a slightly different touch to the monochrome style, check out this offering from River Island. Whilst it keeps in with the black and white theme, it combines this with polka dots, making it a lot more fun!

Bold Prints

Moving away from monochrome, we have the complete other end of the spectrum with bold and bright prints. The thing to remember with bold print summer dresses is that you should never be afraid of colour. In fact, embrace it as much as you can. There are so many high street brands that offer bold printed dresses; however, one that we really love is this maxi dress from Mela available at New Look. A bardot style dress, it comes with a tropical print that brings a touch of summer to your wardrobe. 

So, what are you waiting for? Welcome in summer with open arms by treating yourself to a beautiful summer 2021 dress. Of course, the good news is because you have
