Ok, it’s officially summer and we are ready for some sun, surf and style! Here at Apples & Pears we love the chance to slink into something more summery so let us bring you our top five pieces for the season:


The Red Maxi Dress
​We defy you to put this dress on and not want to dance – it’s so swishy and the layers feel luxurious and ever so slightly louche! The straps are detachable so you can choose to wear it bandeau style, perhaps for shoulder tanning purposes, or maybe add a pop of contrasting colour with a lime green or neon orange bikini underneath – after all, it’s perfect as a beach to bar cover up. Our absolute holiday must-have.


The Pansy Print Swing Dress
​Honestly, if every year you’ve got weddings or garden parties to go to then this white and violet print swing dress is going to be the answer to your perennial prayer. It’s so sassy and sweet, with just enough detail to stop it being simply another floral frock: The cut-out neckline and cap sleeves take it to the next level – pair with a white bolero jacket and violet heels for the ultimate summer sartorial statement

​The Coral Crinkle Maxi Dress
​Oh, this one is just crying out for an armful of bangles, some big hoop earrings and a pair of gladiator sandals. If there is a better colour to wear on summer skin than coral we’ve yet to find it – and this maxi has a v-neck – perfect for those who don’t do spaghetti straps. The material is super easy-care, easy-wear too – you can literally scrunch this one up and stuff it in your suitcase. Holiday heaven.

The Lemon Print Sundress
​We can’t help it – we love this dress so much. It has lemons on it… lemons!! How can that fail to make you smile? Elasticated back and wide skirt (pop a petticoat underneath!) give a vintage vibe to your silhouette which perfectly suits lazy summer afternoons with a cocktail or two. Max out on the sherbet by adding a pair of yellow pumps and a denim jacket.

The White Beaded Tee
​Ha! See?! We’re not ALL about the dresses! This is our new favourite top – it somehow manages to be cool, classy, different and festival-ly all at a once! We’ve never seen anything quite like it and the way the beading sits over the bust line is just too cool for school. Wear it with daisy-dukes, a white gypsy skirt or fem up your combats – you’ll be sure to catch everybody’s eye.

Have a happy summer season, curvy girls!
