The Best Summer Dresses To Buy For Every Holiday Destination

Whether you’re going to be strolling the streets of Rome or partying in Ibiza, these are the best holiday dresses to wear to each of Britain's favourite vacation hotspots...

When the weather comes around and we’re about ready for a well-deserved break, every British girl orchestrates these two steps: first, an excited visit to Skyscanner.com, second, an eager quest to shop for clothes to pack for the holiday they just booked. As far as portable pieces that are perfect for stuffing in your suitcase for the trip, without a doubt, dresses go the furthest way. There’s never an instance on holiday where a dress isn’t appropriate- unless of course you’re in the middle of water sports… or a hike. Nonetheless, for general lounging around the way you’re meant to on a break, a dress will always get you through- but which dress you should bring to which location is the real question. A white linen midi dress to keep you cool in Crete, or a yellow ruffled bardot to look graceful in Algarve? Wherever you go, and even if you’re staying home, these dresses will see you through the summer in the chicest of ways- so be sure to get a few.

Ibiza

The party capital of Europe, this island is famous for showing off its innovative party style every summer. A look that will get you through the tedious pool parties is something that shows off your spunk and individuality, like this metallic gold bodycon mini dress. Perfect for shimmering with every movement as you dance into the late evening at a boozy pool party.
Pair it with:

Paris

Although a little strayed from beachy shores, this city escape is still amongst one of the most popular places to visit by Brits, and those who have been will most certainly have harped on about how lovely it is in the summer. To channel some romantic, Parisian vibes, go for an off the shoulder mini dress, paired with some strappy sandals and resin earrings.
Pair it with:

Algarve

As a popular Portuguese beach destination, this region offers all the best of the Mediterranean, from fantastic food to breath-taking scenery. Get in touch with your surroundings by wearing something natural-inspired, like a floral tiered mini dress, paired with a simple pair of Birkenstock sandals and of course your favourite bikini underneath, for the expected spontaneous dip into the water at midday.
Pair it with:

Rome

In this historic cultural wonderland, you’re going to be doing lots of wandering, from landmarks to the medially magnificent side streets, so wearing something you can comfortably move around in is key- but at the same time, we refuse to lower down a level of charming Italian style we aim to achieve in the capital. What’s the solution? A satin slip dress of course. Paired with some comfy mules and a big sun hat, this flowy wonder will help you survive your strolls in the intense heat of these Roman streets and look timeless while doing it.
Pair it with:

Crete

Any person that’s visited Crete knows how unbelievably stunning this island is- and how hot. In a coastal Grecian setting like Crete, nothing will keep you feeling cool and looking incredible like a white linen dress. Simple, breathable, and oh-so-stylish for those endless Instagram pictures you’ll be taking all holiday long.
