On those days where the temperature eclipses 90 degrees we know we’re reaching for a summer dress. Cool and comfortable, summer dresses are the easiest way to beat the heat and still look cute without having to do much work. These breezy dresses only need the right purse or sandal to complete their look and then you’re ready for anything. Wear these dresses to work, as a beach cover up, or styled up for a night out.
1. Blouson Dresses
During the summer we need a little more breathing room. Blouson dresses are styles that have an adjustable tie at the waist so that the top fabric gently blouses over the waistband. This extra bit of space is really comfortable for the muggy summer months and it can take the focus off any trouble spots with our figure. Try this Maxi Dress with Blouson Waist by Tiana B. for a cool, tropical look.
2. Shift Dresses
The A-line cut of a shift dress like this Printed Jersey Dress may not look like it would fit your silhouette but once on it flatters almost every woman’s figure! Now silhouettes asides the reason we love this dress for summer is that it’s so comfortable and easy to style! With its looser fit throughout you won’t experience any sticky and clingy fabric situations. Throw on a pair of sandals like these Jeweled Demi-Wedges by Vince Camuto and this outfit can work for casual occasions or a nice dinner.
3. Maxi Dresses
More fabric would always make us hotter right? Wrong! The wonderful style of maxi dresses is that the extra coverage actually transfers the heat off our skin and into the air to cool us down. It also doesn’t hurt that they are seriously stylish with their graceful sweeping lengths. Be a summertime goddess in this Maxi/Skirt dress by Curations Caravan that can easily be transformed into a skirt when you want to change up your look. For a pop of color use an accessory like this Glazed Print Tote by Sigrid Olsen Studio to give your look a more summery feel.
4. Peasant Dresses
In the summertime we are freely excused to show off a little more skin and peasant dresses find just the right balance. With an elastic neckline this printed peasant maxi lets us bare our shoulders for a cooler style that has a hint of rustic romance to its look. With a chiffon knit, this dress will be lightweight and ideal for strolling around town. Drop necklines like this peasant style are great for highlighting your favorite jewelry too.
