Last week, in the midst of boiling temperatures, I had a meltdown. Like a scene from a low-budget rom-com where the unlucky-in-love protagonist finds she has nothing to wear ahead of a 'big date', I emptied the entire contents of my wardrobe on to my bed and wailed at the clothes before me.

Dramatic, but true. I had overlooked an entire season - summer. Locked in the perennial drudgery of lockdown, I had bypassed staple summer dresses and instead added more leggings and Lycra to cart.

It was when I contemplated cutting a pair of discoloured Nike leggings into shorts that I realised the need for breathable, stylish, light-weight pieces.

Whether you're excited by a puff sleeve or prefer ruffles and cut-outs, Savida has always been the trend-led brand in Dunnes Stores' style aisles. Committing to premium fashion at an affordable price, the collections interpret the season's top catwalk trends into wearable everyday styles. Meaning you can look forward to a season of colourful printed frocks in standout brights and eclectic prints with more than a hint of a designer finish.

First on my Savida hit list was a tiered midi skirt and top: €45 for an outfit that is more reminiscent of Dolce& Gabbana than Dunnes. The essential crisp white dress was next.

Dresses to live in all summer long - and not a stretchy legging in sight.
