Double Thumbs Dresses #78

Hello hello! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our roundup of the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted double thumbs seal of approval! Let’s crack on….

Double Thumbs Dresses #78 | Deckchair Print Dress £65 by Emily and Fin at Aspire Style
Deckchair Print Dress £65 by Emily and Fin at Aspire Style

I think you all know how much we love Emily and Fin by now (a quick glance at their website will reveal we even have our own edit right now) so it’s no surprise to see them sitting pretty in the top spot this week. This divine deckchair print is oh so summery and I love the colour! So pretty! I’ve really been favouring their Scarlett shape (which you can find on Aspire Style) recently with the lovely button down detail, I find it really flattering and easy to wear. American readers (or those who just hate buttons) can find the same print in the Claudia shape over on Modcloth.

‘Bernice’ Paris Border Swing Dress £45 from Lindy Bop

Lovely Lindy Bop have also been adding fab new prints, like my bank account stands a chance of coping. I don’t know what it is with me and ‘swimmer’ prints recently but I seem to be spotting them left right and centre – clearly SS16s unsung trend. I’m loving them though so keep them coming! I’m also seriously swooning over that Parisian border. What an Eiffel!

Double Thumbs Dresses #78 | Apples and Pears Cotton Pleat Front Dress £75 from Cath Kidston
Apples and Pears Cotton Pleat Front Dress £75 from Cath Kidston

We always love a fruity number from Cath Kidston and this apples and pears number is no exception. How lovely are those yellows and reds together? It makes me feel all nostalgic as I’m sure I had a similar print dress when I was a child. I really like the look of this new shape too, with a sweet cotton pleat-front style.

Double Thumbs Dresses #78 | Floral Smocked Shift Dress £39.50 from Marks and Spencer
Floral Smocked Shift Dress £39.50 from Marks and Spencer

I am totally obsessed with this floral print from Marks and Spencer! I think the pops of yellow and blue along with that delightful lace waistband really make this dress stand out. Loving the long sleeves too! It’s just a bit pretty isn’t it?

Double Thumbs Dresses #78 | Hartley Beach Scene Cotton Dress £49 from Sugarhill Boutique at John Lewis
Hartley Beach Scene Cotton Dress £49 from Sugarhill Boutique at John Lewis

An excellent novelty print from Sugarhill Boutique who have come over all seaside chic with this deckchair and seagull festooned frock. There are even some cheeky beach huts to be found! So adorable.

Double Thumbs Dresses #78 | Ombre Ditsy Skater Dress £55 from Oasis
Ombre Ditsy Skater Dress £55 from Oasis

Last but not least we have this beautiful ombre floral affair from Oasis. I really love the sweet high neckline and the pleats are fab too. The print is really rather special and I am seriously swooning over the ombre detailing. It’s absolutely stunning.

    • Hiya! Yes definitely, I wear a lot of the longer Emily and Fin dresses to work. The Isobel and Claudia both fall below the knee but I also wear the Sophie and Frankie shapes which are a bit shorter so they might be fined depending where you work! I think the only shapes I’ve got which I wouldn’t wear are the Lucy and Abigail as they really are too short 🙂 All the shapes are on the Emily and Fin website (https://emilyandfin.co.uk/category/dresses) and they list the lengths too. Hope that helps! Jx
