There are dozens of amazing dresses on the high street this month, with plenty of different styles appearing regularly on our Instagram feeds. If you are a fan of the COS aesthetic, and tend to favour minimal pieces with boxy and at-times-ugly silhouettes in muted colours, there is one trending dress style in particular that is worth paying extra attention to— oversized smocks.
Of course COS is in on this trend, with a billowing black smock with puffy sleeves and a tiered skirt that I’ve seen several fashion girls wearing with velcro sandals and a bucket hat to complete the nana-on-a-cruise vibe. John Lewis and Partners has also created an amazing smock in a navy windowpane check print, with an even more oversized silhouette than the COS dress. If you are into the shape of this dress trend, but want something a little bolder, then ASOS White’s butter yellow wrap smock dress is a brighter alternative. Complete the look with a pair of Teva sandals and if you’re feeling particularly brave, a leopard bucket hat.
