Sleeper's Cult Dresses Are the Comfiest Thing You'll Wear All Summer

Despite spending more time indoors over the last 12 months, our appetite for pretty dresses certainly hasn't settled down. With the first signs of summer (in July no less), many are now putting away their loungewear and leggings in favour of throw-on dresses, as they are the easiest way to get dressed but still feel relaxed whether you're at home, hanging out in the park or meeting friends for dinner. Enter the brand of choice, Sleeper. This label was founded as a pyjama brand, so naturally, it creates the comfiest nightie-style dresses around.

Sleeper's most popular dresses have puffy, short sleeves and look like something straight out of a Dickensian tale. The brand has updated the traditional white nightdress with bold colours and prints. We're especially taken by the dusty-pink and lemon-yellow versions. The Instagram crowd proves that these nighties are the perfect throw-on dresses for days working at home in the heat or casual picnics in the park. They're ideal for those days when you can't waste any time deciding what to wear.
