On the plus side: Fashion Director Rivkie Baum gives her lowdown on the best plus size summer dresses in rainbow colours

With the heatwave well and truly in full swing, this is the moment to embrace the best plus size summer dresses and inject a rainbow of hues into your wardrobe.

As the temperatures soar, darker colours will absorb heat where as whites and brighter hues will hopefully keep you that little bit cooler but still looking hot.

I’m a big fan of plus size summer dresses for an effortless and chic one stop look and this summer the high street is full of lovely and pretty, colourful, plus size dresses.

Don’t worry about thigh chafing as I have rounded up some perfect solutions for that, here.

Embrace colour this summer to cheer yourself and your wardrobe up.

The trick with Shein is to go based on garment measurements. So whip out your tape measure, jot your own measurements down and then compare to the sizing chart per item you want to order. This dress is adorable.

This vibrant green is perfect for the summer. Dress down with sandals or wear for an occasion with heels and a fascinator.

Orange dress, £42, ASOS Curve

I love the ruffle detailing on this dress. While it will definitely work for a summer micro wedding guest look with a pair of heels and a fascinator, I think you could easily wear it to dinner with friends with a pair of plimsolls for an easy summer look.

For those that don’t know, Studio 8 is the sister brand to Phase Eight and so you know you get the same great quality and fit. I really love this brand, it’s only a few years old but it has really grown and developed its signature style alongside Studio Eight and this dress is neatly £100 off!

Dress, was £27.49 now £15.70, Yoins

A shirt dress is perfect for the summer and great if you’re heading back to the office and want to look professional without getting too hot.

Frill hem dress, £45, Simply Be
