It’s been a long, hot summer and we don’t know about you, but we’re still adjusting to living in this permanent state of heatwave! Dressing for the UK summer can be a challenging task, especially if you’re not keen on flashing the flesh or you need to ensure you’re dressed ‘office appropriate’. Luckily Mark Heyes is on hand to offer a few suggestions towards the best dress shapes for summer. Take a look below…

Denim Shirt Dress

1. The Shirt Dress

A denim dress is a true wardrobe essential. Fling it on for instant daytime chicness - Mark Heyes
However you choose to wear it, the shirt dress is a great purchase because it suits every body shape. Deceivingly lightweight, this denim shirt dress is the perfect summer office outfit. Respectfully covering the upper arms and falling at just above knee-length. The added shirt collar brings a smart detail to the overall look, while the self-tie belt nips in the waist for a feminine silhouette. Made from pure, breathable cotton and is cut to a flattering fit and flare shape.

2. The Wrap Dress

You can’t go wrong with a wrap dress and this one is no exception. The natural shape of the dress always flatters any figure, and the those vibrant hues will work with every skin tone - Mark Heyes
With a tie waist that cinches on the slimmest portion of torso, the wrap dress gives an ultra-slimming effect. Paired with a v-neckline, the dress enhances your bust and slims over the hips, a great option for those with a pear shape or those looking to add curves. This floral mix and match hanky hem dress provides a flattering and comfortable fit. This is a great versatile sleeveless dress, wear with sandals for a day shopping or team with your favourite heels to take you from day to night.

Made from stretch jersey fabric, it is comfortable enough to wear all through the day, and is fully lined for a luxurious feel. The feminine wildflower print is ideal for summer garden parties and al fresco meals.
