Amanda's Edit: What to wear when it's hot, hot, hot

So I am buying our Spring/Summer 23 collections this week in a scorchio London. I knew it would be baking hot so I packed light and I only packed dresses. I added in two shoe options - a pair of trainers for running between appointments and some flat pumps. In my bag? Well, sunglasses of course, my laptop and, probably rather dangerously, my big bottle of water. Enjoy my edit of some hot in the city dressing options!

I love the flattering cut on this floral Hunkon Maxi - the tie-front gives it a lovely shape on every figure.

 This Lollys Laundry Dress has been such an easy all-rounder this summer while I've been travelling. So light to wear and easy to accessorise up and down depending on the occasion.


Pink City Prints dresses are a proper failsafe when it comes to dressing for a heatwave. I always pack one for my travels this time of year as they just exude summer.

My favourite dress of the summer was a Hartford Maxi, which has now sold out. However this sweet tie-strap detail Part Two Povla Dress is a super alternative.


I've kept my accessories to a minimum so that I could pack light. Clockwise from top left: Bellerose Nyra Bag, £175, Shoe The Bear Valda Trainers, £130, Freedom Moses Venus Sandals, £40, Part Two Nille Sunglasses, £29.95.
