We spoke to the EziBuy buying team about their key influences when selecting the dresses for the season ahead. And which ones are their favourites....

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes a call for easy and effortless style. Another essential factor in a good summer wardrobe comes down to the versatility of your outfits-cue the dress…

Versatile, flattering, and easy. Only one thing to choose from, and no mixing and matching required, which can make for a much more time efficient process in the mornings. Plus, they are easy to wear and very often provide great day to night options. Our latest catalogue speaks just to this point and offers pages and pages of options on dresses.

This week we spoke to our buying team to discover what were their key motivators when selecting the dresses for the season ahead. As it turns out, a big part of the design process came down to versatility and fabrication. Think cool, breathable linen fabrics. As well, an ability for the dress to work for a range of body shapes and sizes.

Below our buyers share some of their favourites for the season ahead.

The Shirred Midi Dress.

“It has been our bestseller this season, and we have a second drop arriving this week for those who missed out the first time around.

The shirred bodice means it is a comfortable and flattering fit, while the prints are happy and bright, perfect to wear in spring with a denim jacket or on its own through the heat of summer. “



The Grace Linen Panelled Midi Dress

” I love linen because I feel like I’m holiday when I wear it. It breathes, has a lovely natural slub texture and a lustre that looks sleek when it’s freshly pressed. The midi length and tailoring give this dress a contemporary, feminine look making it a versatile dress”



Sara Linen Cocoon Drape Dress

Sara Linen Blend Drape Dress

These two are my favourites this season, both are in a soft drapey Linen Blend fabric.  Linen as a fabrication is a must this season and I love it because it is durable and breathable its and easy option to dress up or down.  The rust is rich and vibrant in colour and the Emerald spot has a fresh summer vibe.

Both of these shapes flatter the curvy woman with sleeves that cover and a flattering drape to the body of the dress.

The Euro V Neck Midi

The Euro Edit V Neck Midi, is my current favourite, it makes me feel like summer is on the horizon. The shape is flattering, and I like the way it accentuates the waist. Plus, who doesn’t love a little black dress? Easy to wear and provides a great silhouette.

Last but not least, a word on the wrap dress. This iconic style works for all body types, all women and almost all occasions and events. It combines effortlessness, femininity, casual and sophisticated style. Plus its easy to get into and out of.
