Forget waiting for June, you’ll find that shops are brimming with summer dresses right now - so much so that the selection can be overwhelming. From the classic floral tea dress to a more of-the-moment silk slip and from off-the-shoulder silhouettes to elaborate silhouettes and bold sleeves, there’s a style to suit everyone - even those who don’t identify as dress lovers.

Although our mini heatwave was extremely short-lived here in the UK, I've still jumped at the opportunity to don some of my favourite dresses already:

Last year's dress trends were bold, statement-making and full of drama. The good news? The trends for S/S 18 are every bit as fun to wear. If you're in the market for a new showstopping, mood-lifting frock, you've come to the right place - I've rounded up the best styles to try now with boots and in August with sandals.

Now all we need is a little bit of sunshine back in our lives.

Maldives anyone?
