Summer Dresses for Less than £30

With warmer weather finally upon us in the UK thoughts will now be turning towards summer dresses. Bright colours, floral patterns and light materials are essential for the season and we have a collection to match those requirements. If you’re going away on holiday, planning to spend time in the garden or looking for something comfortable to wear day-to-day we have exactly what you’re looking for.

Many of the mainstream retailers offer a lovely collection of summer dresses, but they’re mass produced. If you want something a little more unique and different for your wardrobe we can help you.

Popular styles this summer will include maxi, bodycon, skater, shift, swing, bandeau and midi dresses.


Our Collection of Summer Dresses

My partner regularly raids our stock room to find something new to wear to work, out to a party, for hen do’s or even for a stroll around town in the sun. Many of our summer dresses are multi purpose outfits and for less than £30 each you’re getting a real bargain.

Here are my hand picked favourites from our collection. Many of them are available in UK sizes 8-20 and we ship all orders received before 4pm the same day, so if you’ve got a late notice party or event to attend we’ve got you covered. All orders are also sent with 1st class recorded delivery, so you should get your order the very next day.


1. Patricia Pink Halterneck Dress – £29.99

This is one of our classic summer dresses and is perfect for a prom, party or a vintage event. The sweetheart neckline and halterneck is great for warmer weather and the swing dress will ensure you stay cool and comfortable. It’s also fully lined and is sold with the wide white belt.

The pink cotton blend means you can wash it time and time again without the colour fading and the design is very versatile.


2. Joyce Floral Swing Dress – £29.99

I’m a huge fan of floral dresses and this is my personal favourite from our collection. We offer a similar dress with lighter colours but the darker contrasting colours on this outfit really stand out. It looks fantastic with or without a petticoat and the top portion of the dress is boned.

The skirt isn’t lined to ensure that it remains light and airy, which for a summer occasion is ideal. Match this outfit with a pair of light coloured heels and you’ve got yourself a wonderful look.


3. Judy Floral Swing Dress – £29.99

This light white cotton dress features a beautiful floral print and a mesh lining on the bottom of the skirt. The print is simple and elegant, so it’s a great all year round fashion option. The basic black ribbon belt works well. Alternatively you could switch it out for a thin black belt to accessorise it.

Kat wore this dress to a burlesque night recently with a pair of striped stockings and some cute vintage black and white shoes. She also has vibrant red hair, which contrasted well with the colour scheme.


4. Laurie Floral Tea Dress – £29.99

Tea dresses are a classic summer choice and this floral number is a real treat. Made from a strong cotton blend this strappy dress looks good with a white petticoat (as pictured) and has a stretchy back to comfortably fit your figure.

The high waist on this dress allows for extra flair on the skirt and the red, white and blue flower pattern really pops.


5. Red Polka Dot Audrey Hepburn Dress – £29.99

Lady wearing a red polka dot Audrey dress.


With its classic Audrey style design and vibrant red colour this polka dot dress is a sure fire summer hit. The high neckline and sleeveless design make it very comfortable to wear and leaves your arms free to gain a tan. Don’t forget the sun cream!

The outfit is supplied with a simple red buckle belt though the dress looks equally stunning when worn without it.
