Our Best Summer Dresses

19th Jun 2019

Mother Nature has finally blessed us with sunshine and that means it’s time to start living in dresses. We, at Northern Reflections, are big fans of the effortless look that summer dresses offer. Be it a flowy maxi dress, a casual black dress or a lightweight denim dress – there’s no easier (and quicker) way to look stylish and put together than throwing on a dress!

Lucky for you, we’ve curated a list of our best summer dresses so take a scroll and treat yourself to something new for the warmer days ahead! 

A Floral Dress for Weddings & Parties


Everyone needs a versatile special occasion dress that’s casual enough for dinner with the gals yet dressy enough for an outdoor wedding. We recommend the Hi-Low Mesh Maxi Dress; our take on the little black dress.


We’ve taken the classic black dress up a notch by adding a bold, placed floral print on a sheer, high-low mesh skirt overlay to add a layer of interest and elegance. And, did you know? A v-neckline and empire waist are flattering (and comfortable) on almost every-body so you will look and feel your best in this dress.

A Perfect Dress for Your Weekend To-dos


Weekends are all about catching up with friends, tackling the to-do list and relaxing on the patio. We’ve got a dress that will check all the boxes; the Box Pleat Printed Jersey Dress. With a chic geometric print in universally flattering corals and a slight stretch to the fabric, this summer dress is as cute as it is comfortable to wear from morning to night; wherever the day takes you.


BONUS: This dress has pockets! POCKETS!!

A Sporty Take on Your Maxi Dress


Looking for a dress that’s a classic with a modern twist? Meet the Sleeveless Striped Maxi Dress. One of our most beloved maxi dress silhouettes has been updated with chic yet sporty, athleisure styling details. We’re loving the “just the right amount of” red and white contrast stripes and the geometric waist detail (that has a visually slimming effect).


Pair this with your favourite white sneakers or heeled sandals and you are ready for a ball game or a work meeting. With the attention to fashion and fit details, this dress will definitely become the MVP of your summer wardrobe.

A Tropical Dress with Romantic Details


Dreaming of a tropical paradise? Let this Tropical Print Dress take you away!


An incredibly comfortable black knit dress with a semi-sheer, printed chiffon overlay that will have you feeling (and looking) like the beach babe that you are. The mysterious turquoise tropical print is inspired by island nights and the delicate top layer mimics the beach breeze as you move, thanks to the split back detail. This is a perfect dress for a weekend getaway, destination wedding or date night.

A Fun & Flowy Style to Lift Your Mood


Handkerchief hem made a comeback for spring 2018 runways and they’re here to stay for a reason...


There’s something about an uneven hem that feels effortlessly fun and feminine. But for our Patch Print Handkerchief Dress, we didn’t just stop at an asymmetrical hemline; we added subtle thoughtful details like a modest v-neckline, and slightly broader shoulder straps for coverage.


We're quite confident that it’s soft draping and a boho-chic patchwork print will instantly put you in a good mood every time you wear it.

Summer Denim Dress


We bet you reach for your favourite denim jeans in the summer, right? But that heat! What if we gave you the perfect alternative in our V-Neck Frayed Hem Dress? This casual-chic piece combines the best of both worlds - the comfort and longevity of denim fabric and the on-trend silhouette of a casual dress.


Plus… since the tencel fabric is extremely lightweight and designed with a relaxed fit, this dress will keep you cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.

The Timeless Shirt Dress


For work-wear dresses, you may want to opt for solid (but bright) colours, structured silhouettes and quality fabrics. It’s a good thing that our Sleeveless Poplin Shirt Dress has all that plus, some pretty eyelet details and a collared neckline for an added dose of sophistication.
