Summer Dresses from



I have decided that Spring/Summer is just round the corner, despite what the weather may be saying.  It is sleeting yet again here in the spa town of Buxton!

I intend to brighten your day with a little selection of summer dresses from Phase Eight.  They all look so beautiful in reality and I hope these images do them justice.


I saw this particular dress in the John Lewis store and my heart sang.  It so reminded me of Spring with the green and just a touch of colour.  It would look lovely in late spring with a little cashmere cardigan.

This little dress has all the vibrancy of Summer.  If you happen to be a typical pear or triangle shape then this dress would suit very well.  It falls flatteringly from a highwaisted band; the skirt is just full enough to hide slightly awkard hips and thighs without being too full.

An inverted triangle shape, where the shoulders are more prominent requires a lighter approach on the neckline.  This stripy maxi dress would be perfect.


I so love the lacy look that is around at the moment.  This fabulous long sleeved dress is simple and elegant relying on the fabric alone for interest and elegance.  It is just perfect for a more apple type lady.

The sleeves are a god send to all who are not so comfortable with their upper arms.  The lace of the fabric gives an airy, lightweight feel – perfect for the summer. Wear it with flats or heels.


For a slender little column shape I really do like this navy and white dress.  The detailing and tucks add plenty of interest and ‘susbstance’.  As a column myself I sometimes do feel better with a little added susbstance!

And last, but not least, this is the ultimate summer dress – perfect for all hour-glass ladies, petite or full in stature! I want to drink afternoon cocktails in this but unfortunately the cut is just not for me..
