Best smock dresses

by Aimee Jakes |

After a stressful and weird AF start to 2020, we want our summer wardrobe to be uplifting, uncomplicated and BREEZY.

NGL, bodycon dresses didn't make the list.

Enter the smock dress which is the perfect antidote to a hard six months for 1) its 'chuck on' factor 2) its ability to conceal pasta-induced bloating 3) it almost doubles up as a blanket when things get a little too much.

Get a dress that does all three, honey.

Don't just take our word for it, Instagram is awash with the voluminous frock...

Here are the best high-street smock dresses to float through summer in.

Trends to look out for this summer:

Victorian necklines: Thanks to the resurgence of Little Women and Downton Abbey, high necklines and vintage details are having a moment. Perfect for when you're pretending to be wholesome.

Racer checks: Be a formula one hun and sport one of the coolest prints around RN. Stick to a monochrome vibe for easy-dressing, or go full-thwack neon if you're feeling adventurous.

Chunky shoes: Toughen up your spring frock with a sturdy shoe. Whether you're a chunky trainers gal or are never not in boots - think Primary School vibes for a bang-on-trend look.
