I Am a Dress Obsessive, and These Are My Favourites for Summer

My wardrobe is approximately 50% colourful printed dresses, and as an editor at Who What Wear, I'm lucky enough to spend a lot of my time indulging this obsession. Out of work, I help my friends to find wedding guest dresses and little-known dress brands and am regularly sending links on WhatsApp as an unofficial personal shopper. As I sit writing this story, I am in a pair of jogging bottoms I have worn for three days and so am well aware of how few of us will be wearing dresses right now. But that doesn't mean we aren't looking at them. Within my role as editor, I look at the stories people are reading every day, and the topic that is still the most popular right now is summer dresses.

Weddings are a sensitive topic for many right now, as most ceremonies have been pushed back to next year and plans remain uncertain. However, with my 2021 wedding diary filling up rapidly (I currently have eight for next year), I'm using this time to do my research and find dresses I really love. So the edit below includes casual everyday midis you can wear at home and more formal looks that I have my eye on for 2021 and beyond. 

Keep scrolling to shop my edit of all the summer dresses I love this year. (A warning: It's a long list and will require a lot of scrolling.)
