Style Challenge Summer Holiday Shopping Part 2!

It is time for part two of my Summer Style Challenge, and this week it is all about the Dress! For me the dress is probably the most important part of the holiday shop as it is the perfect way to get glammed up for a post tanning day night out! 
And the beauty of dresses is there are styles to suit every shape and size, which makes them even more versatile and can be worn day and night whiter it is hitting the beach or bars. 
For the last couple of summers I have worn little casual day dresses as beach cover ups and they have been perfect, I always hit Primark for these as it they are really well priced and you don't get stressed if you get sun tan lotion and sand all over it! 

For this style challenge, however I have focused on 3 types of summer holiday dresses that are bang on trend for this season  Neon, Maxi,and Short! 
Here are my picks....

Cut Out Dress- Topshop £46 
Skater Dress- Miss Selfridge £39
Tunic- H&M Conscious Collection £59.99

Floral Maxi-Miss Selfridge £42
Red Maxi- River Island £20
White Maxi-Topshop £95
Feather Print Maxi-River Island £25
Leopard Print Maxi- Topshop £28

Short (prints and colours)
Tie Die- H&M £14.99
Chili Print Dress- Glamorous £29.99
Print Tunic- H&M Conscious Collection £14.99
Peach Cut Out- Missguided £25.99
Fringe Dress- Topshop £75
Spotty Dress- ASOS £46
Tribal Print Dress- River Island £20
Floral Dress- Boohoo £20
Pleated Dress- Glamorous £40.99
Animal Print Dress - Boohoo £20

It was really hard to try and narrow down the search for this challenge, there are so many great summer dresses, but my big decider for every outfit is would I wear it? And I would wear these! 
I think my fav dress trend this summer has to be the Neon, this will look the best with a tan and can be styled up with some really bold and daring accessories! 

I hope you like my picks and I hope you are all ready for the weekend?(I know it was only a four day week, but it has felt long!) I am going out for a meal with my boyfriend and Parents tomorrow night and think it will be the perfect time to try out my new print/ pj trousers, so keep checking in for my outfit post, and my final instalment of the Summer Holiday style challenge!

Happy Weekend/ Happy Shopping!
