Double Thumbs Dresses #64

Hello dress fans! It’s time for the first Double Thumbs Dresses of 2016! Partaaay! So, without further ado, I present to you the top frocks that we consider worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval.

Tea and Macarons Dress £75 from Yumi
Tea and Macaroons Dress £75 from Yumi

Oh HELLO! We always love a bit of Yumi here at She and Hem but they have truly excelled themselves with their latest offerings. This Tea and Macaroons dress is the stuff my dress dreams are made of. With its beautiful pastel colouring, delightful twirly fit and print that features teacups piled high with macaroons, it really is a wonder frock. It does also appear to come with straps, if that’s a deal breaker for you. This appears to be a House of Fraser exclusive (fancy) which is great news for me as I’ve been sitting on some HoF vouchers for about 8 months. Happy New Year, me.

Cactus Print Skater Dress £65 from Yumi

And so the Yumi fun continues with this super cute cactus print! This skater dress is so cheery thanks to all those fab colours. I’m pretty potty about those pots!

The Potteries Dress £60 from There's Only One Amy Laws

Want more pots? Your Potteries luck is in! Another of our favourites, There’s Only One Amy Laws, has just added this beautiful Potteries skyline print dress to her website – defo one for all those die hard Stoke-On-Trent fans out there! I adore the hourglass shape and there’s just so much lovely detail to this dress. Even the smoke is pretty!

Patterned dress in Yellow £19.99 from H&M
Patterned dress in Yellow £19.99 from H&M

I am such a fan of this H&M dress (and no, not just because I’d get change out of a twenty pound note – although that does help!). I love the combination of colours and the a-line shape looks lovely with those long sleeves.

Cobalt Ladybird Print Dress £50 from Next
Cobalt Ladybird Print Dress £50 from Next

I feel like this Next frock might be my perfect Winter work dress! Cute but subtle novelty print? Check. Super long sleeves to keep me warm? Check. Colour dark enough to disguise any tea I may or may not throw down myself? Check. The adorable pleating is an added bonus!

Botanical Floral Shift Dress £45 from Warehouse
Botanical Floral Shift Dress £45 from Warehouse

I keep spotting people wearing this divine floral print, which is no surprise really when you consider Warehouse have whacked it on three tops and two dresses. They obviously like it as much as I do! Personally I love the shift dress but the midi appears to be the more popular choice! But whatever tickles your pickle, it’s all about those glorious blooms!

Chaney Woodland Jersey Dress £45 by Louche at Joy
Chaney Woodland Jersey Dress £45 by Louche at Joy

Yay! It’s The Animals of Farthing Wood in dress form! It’s woodland creatures a-go-go in the brilliant dress by Louche! There are squirrels, deer and racoons to admire, as well as what looks to be Little Red Riding Hood? Amazing.

Backless Sheer Sleeve Tulle Embellished Maxi Dress £185 from Needle and Thread at ASOS
Backless Sheer Sleeve Tulle Embellished Maxi Dress £185 from Needle and Thread at ASOS

Last but not least is this simply stunning dress by the tully scrumptious Needle and Thread. I mean, it’s ridiculous. Just look at all that tulle! And the embroidered detailing is to die for! If you’re getting married anytime soon, just wear this and spend the money you’ve successfully saved on cake. Cake forever.
