When it comes to dresses, we’ve quite literally seen it all. There is, however, one brand that stands out from the rest for possessing a certain je ne sais quoi - and that’s Rat & Boa, the London-based dress brand that has a knack for creating cool, sultry dresses that are A-lister approved.

While Rat & Boa isn’t exactly new to the scene, the brand's influence continues to skyrocket, with some of the dresses reaching icon status. Take the Adriana, for example, the brand's ultimate best-seller which is almost always sold out thanks to its 90s-inspired silhouette. Influencer-favourite Paola slip dress is another cult favourite, its black lace detailing and unique floral print landing it its (much-deserved) internet virality. But don’t just take our word for it - plenty of influencers, celebs and certified cool-girls have long basked in the glory of Rat & Boa, too.

Lila Moss and Stella Jones are amongst Rat & Boa’s star-studded fan base, a fact proven at Glastonbury this year. Both were pictured wearing pieces from the brand over the festival weekend, with Moss wearing the yet-to-be-released-retail Beatriz dress, £145 and Jones wearing the Palonia Top, £150 and matching Trousers, £145.

Kylie Jenner is another Rat & Boa devotee, having been pictured on Instagram wearing the Valentina dress, £160 - a silk, slightly sheer animal print maxi with a signature Rat & Boa cowl neckline that's - to our utter delight - still in stock.


So, if you're looking for summer dresses that possess that extra something, then look no further. Here are the best Rat & Boa dresses that'll see you from beach, to bar - and beyond.

Shop: The Best Rat & Boa Dresses

This Rat & Boa number is a popular choice amongst many celebs, namely Victoria Secret models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Elsa Hosk. The Gisele dress is a 90s-inspired cowl neck maxi, made with sheer polka-dotted silk.

Back in 2018, Kylie Jenner introduced us to Rat & Boa's Valentina dress, and we've never looked back. This bold maxi is made from a silk blend, featuring a pretty cowl neckline and a daring animal print.

When it comes to finding a dress fit for a formal occasion, Rat & Boa's Selena maxi should be top of mind. Featuring feminine frills in a bold black hue, it's no surprise this dress is so popular, with Irina Shayk being amongst its many fans.

It's fair to say that puff sleeve dresses are amongst some of the most popular dresses on the market, and we can see why - they're ultra-feminine and flattering on any figure. That's why we'd recommend Rat & Boa's Magnolia dress, a flattering puff-sleeve frock with a sultry thigh-high slit.

To say that Rat & Boa's Rafinha dress has become one of the brand's bestsellers would be an understatement. Why? It's a true showstopper of a maxi, featuring a signature Rat & Boa cowl neck, scooped back and barely there criss-cross straps.

There's no denying the popularity of the Cecelia maxi dress. It's a head-turner that has proven itself time and time again as a fan favourite. This delicate dress, much like the Selena dress, is made from a silk blend and features frill detailing from top to bottom.

We've seen plenty of replicas of the Fabienne maxi dress, but nothing comes close to the real thing. Crafted with silk chiffon, this technicolour printed dress has a classic cowl neckline and open-back detailing - similar to the Valentina dress. It's no wonder then, that celebs like Kaia Gerber have been spotted wearing this showstopper of a gown.

Rocky Barnes is a fan of this Rat & Boa maxi, and it's no surprise why. It's extremely flattering - featuring a plunge V-neck, intricate button-up detailing, and voluminous sleeves.

Elegance meets sex appeal with the Ophelia maxi. This slip dress has a cowl neck and cowl back adorned with chain detailing for an elevated look.

The Adriana is a certified trendsetter - we've seen plenty of high-street retailers replicating this watercolour-inspired number, from Zara to Mango.

The Lupita dress won't leave much to the imagination, so we'd suggest wearing something underneath it. Unlike many of the other Rat & Boa dresses, this number is crocheted from Lurex and finished with sequins that'll catch the sun every time you move.

Rat & Boa's Donyale Dress is a one-of-a-kind plunge maxi that'll take your breath away. This captivating black satin gown comes with a deep cowl neckline, scooped back and tie halter neck straps that is sure to make a statement.
