Essential Minimalist Summer Dresses

It took me till my mid-20s to figure this out, but all I want to wear is dresses. Whether it’s running errands, meeting the in-laws, lounging around the house or going in to work, nothing fuses the feminine and comfortable quite like a dress. But sometimes, it’s a challenge to navigate the summer as a stylish woman who can’t get on board with the boho-gypsy trend.

Enter Nique.

Each expertly crafted in premium, natural fabrics, the dresses are mindfully designed with the future in mind- made to wardrobe staples for years to come. Focusing on timeless silhouettes and form, the dresses are each a one-piece outfit in themselves, perfect for easy summer styling on days so hot you can hardly think.


With plenty of warm days and balmy nights on the horizon, consider picking up a few of our best summer dresses to live in all season long.

The White Fumita Linen Dress

A white dress is synonymous with summer, and our bestselling Fumita is the mini dress of your summer romance dreams. Imagine floating through summer in a lighter-than-air sundress- hot beach days that turn into barefoot dancing on the grassy hills by the shore. The asymmetrical hems with gathering creates an irresistible amount of movement that will have you twisting and twirling through the night. Oh, and it has pockets!

Style note: Looks good with bare feet dipping into the ocean

The Black Aimie Line Dress

We try not to play favourites here at Nique but the Aimie dress is our golden girl. Stand out of the crowd in this oh-so-special midi dress, which features a flattering square neckline and back strap detailing, meaning you look just as good from the front as the back. Rendered in a beautifully light linen with a 100% cotton lining, the dress ensures day long comfort, earning its salt in wearability.

Style note: A minimal statement dress, the Aimie will subtly transform you into ‘that girl in the dress’.

The Smoke Blue Hanae Linen Dress

Expertly crafted from durable and breathable linen, the Hanae is the sensible choice for any summer engagement or errand. The forgiving silhouette and convertible belt of this easy linen number means it can be styled to your mood, and capped sleeves ensure modesty even for a shorter length dress. 

Style note: Wear to your local farmers markets on the weekend, followed by lunch in a new neighbourhood.

The Black Glider Midi Slip Dress

At Nique, we know how to find beauty in simplicity. Our instant classic Glider midi dress returns for another season in the sun- exuding both romanticism and nonchalant grace. Starting at elegant shoulder straps, the Glider falls gracefully to a longline silhouette, moving with fluidity as you walk- courtesy of our signature vegan silk fabric.
