1 H&M’S Bud­get Blues

No girl should be with­out a trusty denim frock, and H&M is packed to the rafters with some of the best on the high street. We’re swap­ping our dun­gas for this but­ton-up ver­sion, which is a dead-ringer of AG Jeans’ cov­eted style – and a tenth of the price. £12.99, H&M

2 Mango’s round-the­clock Frock

Whether you’re in the of­fice, headed to brunch or gear­ing up for a big night out, Mango’s lit­tle white dress will make sure you look suit­ably chic 4/7. Part of its Com­mit­ted range, it’s also eth­i­cally made. Sold? We thought so. £69.99, Mango

3 M&s’s Waitlist Won­der

Fash­ion ed­i­tors lost it when they locked eyes on this show­stop­per at Marks & Spencer’s press day back in Jan­uary, and now it’s fi­nally hit the shelves! Ruf­fled, bright and splashed with an ex­otic flo­ral print, this dress is a sum­mer must-have. £59, Marks & Spencer

4 new look’s Backin-stock steal

Is it Ref­or­ma­tion? Is it Réal­i­sa­tion Par? No, it’s New Look! This dress sold out so quickly, not even the most ded­i­cated in­flu­encer man­aged to get her hands on it. For­tu­nately for us, NL’S brought it back in bulk. £27.99, New Look

5 self-por­trait 2.0

Last year you likely got smashed play­ing the ‘Spot The Self-por­trait Dress’ drink­ing games at all those sum­mer wed­dings. No? Just us? Now, if you’re look­ing to win the best-dressed guest ac­co­lade, forego the brand’s 01 spaghetti-strap style and usher in this ruf­fled num­ber in­stead. £300, Self-por­trait


Of­fi­cially the la­bel to be seen in right now, we rec­om­mend adding a Rixo frock to your wardrobe ar­se­nal be­fore ev­ery­one else catches on. Our fave? This leafy dream that comes com­plete with a plung­ing neck­line and a sexy scoop back. Beaut. £325, Rixo Lon­don

7 next’s De­signer Homage

Vita Kin’s em­broi­dered tops were all the rage last sum­mer, and now we can carry our ob­ses­sion over into 017 in dress form. Next’s black and tan smock-frock has al­ready started crop­ping up on so­cial me­dia, so hop to it. £50, Next

8 Millie Mack’s in­sta in­vest­ment

When MIC vet­eran Millie Mack­in­tosh launched her own fash­ion col­lec­tion, we’re sure even she couldn’t pre­dict the chaos it would cause. Six sea­sons and count­less sell-out pieces later, its her ging­ham off-the-shoul­der frock that’s caught our (and ev­ery­one else’s) at­ten­tion. For ob­vi­ous rea­sons. £110, Millie Mack­in­tosh
