20 of the best linen dresses to invest in for summer, from £24.99

Our plans may have had to change this year due to the ongoing pandemic, but we can still hope for some great weather with lots of sunshine. And what better time to treat yourself to a new dress, and ideally, one which is suited to the hot summer heat? 

Linen has always been hailed for its cooling properties as it allows air to breeze through it freely, thus keeping our bodies at a lower temperature. While the weather has been unpredictable for the last week or two, there’s apparently plenty of sunshine on the way, making it a perfect time to snap up the great linen dresses on the rails now before they sell out. 

Linen was once associated with less stylish silhouettes, but it has since cropped up in all sorts of designs and officially become chic again. From mini dresses to midis and maxis, the options are endless when it comes to this versatile fabric. 

We’ve selected the 20 best linen dresses available online right now, starting at just £24.99. So whatever your budget, you can rock a linen dress this summer no matter what the occasion. Pair yours with some simple sandals or espadrilles at the family bbq or socially distanced picnic with friends for that ultimate summer look.
