Dresses we wish we were wearing right now

Exposing more skin when the sun shines can be daunting, but these summery dresses are ladylike, comfortable and oh so wearable

The sun is here! We can't quite believe it, but it's actually a time to put on some tan, get the legs out and wear all the dresses in your wardrobe that usually never see the light of day.

If you feel woefully unprepared for this sudden blessing of good weather, fear not. This selection of dresses will see you through any event you have coming up. Whether you want something summery but still office-appropriate, a nice dress for a fun BBQ, or a investment piece with wow factor to wear all summer, this list has them all. And too often, the shops are filled with sundresses that are only wearable on a Caribbean beach with a knockout tan, not quite right for sitting in an Irish beer garden or for lunch in what sunshine we have. But fear not, there's not a cut out, sheer panel, or impractically high hemline in sight in this edit.
