The Perfect Strappy Summer Dresses

Style Theory: Strappy, cotton sundresses are my summer go-to. They are cool, look great and mean you can waft around without overheating. Perfect to fling over swimwear and wear out in the evening with flat sandals, the one dress you need to pack on are some of my favourites...
Free People £140
I love the boho fabric of this dress, it has a low strappy back so can be worn with a bandeau bra or over swimwear.
Free People £88
I am seriously into smocking at the moment, it is so comfortable on, looks great and if you are small chested (like me!) it means to can go without a bra. I have ordered this dress..
Topshop £85
This black silk dress is incredibly chic and timeless, I would pair with black wedge espadrilles for a beautiful evening holiday look.
Topshop £30
The thin multi coloured stripes make this dress the ideal beach to bar dress, dress down with flat, tan sandals, dress up in the evening with colour pop espadrilles,
&Other Stories £59
A linen dress is a must on a really hot day, this mustard colour looks stunning against sunkissed skin.
Sezane £125
The double layer of this dress makes it really flattering.
Zara £25.99
Wear this Zara dress with flat tan sandals for a super chic, casual but dressed up holiday look.
Zara £29.99
So not particularly 'strappy' but a cream dress is such a useful thing to pack for holidays (if you are good at keeping things clean - I am not) This one is understated, I would team with pale tan espadrilles.
Mango £49.99
Khaki looks great on holiday paired with the usual tan sandals and a basket bag.
Free People £120
This dress has the most beautiful straps with bows at the back, made of lightweight cotton it will be so cool on warm nights.
Monsoon now £39
This dress caught my eye in store, such a fab beach dress, super easy to wear..

These are all pretty perfect dresses to pack for your holiday, I am a huge fan of a day to evening dress, it appeals to my 'can't be bothered to dress up' nature on beach holidays! 

As always I love to hear all your thoughts and comments, thanks for reading Fran xxx


  1. Love all of these! I've always worried about not wearing a bra under strappy dresses, but I've recently discovered a cheap little bandeau from M&S (I actually think it's in the teen section) for a tenner which does the trick. So now I'll be buying ALL of these :)
