5 Lightweight Dresses for Summer Days

Lightweight linen dresses

As the days get warmer, we are starting to think of our summer wardrobe and the lightweight pieces we can wear in the sunshine. Here are our five essential dress shapes you'll want to travel and lounge in when the sun comes out.

Ankle Length Sleep Shirt 

This popular shape is a customer favourite, which is why it's restocked regularly. In a modest length somewhere between our Long and Full Length styles, this nightshirt has a flattering rounded hem and a lengthened button placket. It can be worn as a beach coverup, day dress, or nightshirt, and looks great belted with a pair of flat sandals. 

Chic cotton day dresses

Flared Sleep Shirt 

This newly added shirt dress features a high low hem, slash pockets and a three-quarter length sleeve. Designed to be roomy like our classic nightshirts, the Flared Sleep Shirt is perfect to be thrown on as a day dress and comfy enough to sleep in. Available in a variety of cottons and linens, this shape is one of our favourites for the new season. 

Oversized Kaftan 

Nothing says summer holiday like wearing a kaftan on the beach. This shape was designed to be a loose, comfortable, chic piece you can wear at home, poolside, or even out as a dress. The oversized, flowing kaftan evokes the ultimate feeling of summer.

Flared Ruffle Nightie 

A re-designed version of our adored Ruffle Camisole, the dress features the same v-neck front and racerback back, but has been lengthened below the knee to create a feminine A-line shape. The nightie or dress is also be available in a variety of cottons and linens from our classic and seasonal fabrics.
