There's nothing quite like the purchase of your first summer dress to bring the promise of sunshine, bare legs and good times ahead. Right now, my favourites are these from H&M.
I love the pop brights on the strapless number, the hidden side pockets and the price - just £24.99. Don't worry if a strapless dress isn't quite your style - the coolest way to wear this is over a tight white tee. Alternatively, with a little bit of sewing, you could turn the belt into a halterneck. This is the perfect summer festival frock.
As for the dress at the top, it's the graphic print I'm crazy about. Even more so, the pleat-front skirt. It's this tailored detail that makes the dress so special and worth every penny of it's £34.99 price tag. Oh, and the fact that it's got adjustable bra straps, a boned corset-style top and is fully lined. This dress is the perfect figure-shaper and definitely one for cocktail hour.
All that's left to do is add a tan!
