Do away with any transitional wardrobe woes and flounce your way through to summer with our edit of statement dresses on fenwick.co.uk.
Pondering what to wear when the weather’s not quite Riviera enough for a sundress, but too warm for layers of non-breathable knits? Us too. With the temperature warming up (albeit slightly) we’re in need of a springtime saviour to rescue us from these transitional wardrobe woes, and keep us feeling cool, calm and collected. With that being said, let us present the [statement dress](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/women/clothing/dresses). A one-piece styling solution you can wear whether the sun’s shining brightly or it’s that (all too familiar) British grey outside. It’s time to play dress up. Providing minimum effort and maximum effect; an easy, breezy eye-catching frock is just what the doctor ordered. And, with this season's dresses offering a Renaissance revival of some of our favourite retro trends - think big sleeves, flirty frills and ice-cream parlour pastels - they'll certainly be packing a punch. So, to help you flounce your way through to summer, you'll simply have to indulge.

Sweet Spot

Reminiscent of ice cream parlours and 1950s desserts, sugary pastel shades have returned. And for dresses, we're feasting on Angel Delight-esque pink, baby blue, lilac and limoncello. With a head-to-toe pastel look, playing with texture is key, like this light and airy Vanessa Bruno dress, tiered to add movement and texture.

All the Frills

Continuing the occasionwear-as-casualwear trend, we're falling for all things flirty, feminine and frilled. Be it lace, ruffles or broderie anglaise, dresses are a flight of fancy, and we couldn't be more overjoyed. Like this peachy Three Floor number that will take you from business lunches to salsa dancing and everything in between. Need we say more?

Primped-up Prints

This season prints have had a makeover, with electric neon hues, hyperdramtic florals and abstract graphic designs plastering the lengths of trousers, skirts and dresses. All that distraction means you can be a bit more daring with the details like this fiesty plunging Borgo de Nor dress, emitting both summertime dressing and red-carpet suitability in equal measure.

Nodding to the imminent summer days, this season's sun-drenched colour palette is enough to transport us to the rich hues of the desert. Up the temperature of your wardrobe with dresses soaked in golden yellow, orange, pink and bronze, like this flattering-fit Stine Goya dress in a "move me to Morroco this minute" mustard yellow.
