India wears a white midi dress by Free People.

Us Brits like nothing more than to moan about the weather, and the high temperatures we’ve seen this month have made us all a bit, well, hot and bothered. The key to staying cool in a heatwave is a simple throw-on summer dress, that will look polished, but feels light and comfortable. If you haven’t found the perfect sundress yet this summer, we can help you out. Zara, Free People, Nobody’s Child and COS are four high street brands in particular which create dresses that are ideal for hot and lazy summer days.

If you like oversized silhouettes and a neutral colour palette, we recommend you head to COS. Nobody's Child has mastered the pretty printed dress, with midis and minis in cute ginghams and florals. Free People is known for its whimsical sensibility, and has lots of beautiful flowy midi dresses in vibrant summer colours, such as tangerine, lime and yellows. Finally, Zara has something for everyone from knitted minis to vibrant prints. Keep scrolling to see our favourite summer dresses from Zara, COS and more.
