Top 10 Summer Party Dresses - with FREE lingerie bag


Ah, it's such a beautiful time of the year. The mornings are brighter, the afternoons warmer and the evenings longer. Dining goes al fresco, swimming too if you're lucky enough to live near the coast, city lido or country garden pool, and the weekends are a chilled-out mix of summer wedding parties, barbecues and picnics. Bliss!

Your summer wardrobe should be in full swing already, and this year you might have indulged in bright colours, bold prints and ultra-feminine shapes that wrap, tease and flirt. One piece you will love to pluck out is the perfect summer dress.

Whether for every day or a special occasion, like a wedding or a summer birthday party, a summer dress that you feel wonderful in is an essential item. Our summer dresses have been designed and made with the best ethics at heart, from natural, sustainable or organic fabrics, in a carefully monitored manufacturing process, and not so "trendy" that they'll last only the one season.

DeviDoll's founder Sindhu Venkatanarayanan is passionate about ethical style, carefully selecting only those designers who she feels combine great design with ethical principles. Here she picks her Top 10 Summer Party Dresses, many of which are on Sale right now, and shares her expert view on what's so lovely about each one. Go party!
