10 Best Summer Dresses

I already put together a capsule wardrobe for this season, and now it’s time for the most fun part: the best summer dresses! As a new Mom, I’ve been reaching for a lot of dresses because of how comfortable and effortless they are while still making me feel polished – I do think we can all relate to that though. Here I wanted to curate a mix of maxis and minis, solids and prints. There’s something for everyone!

MINKPINK Zinnia Mini Dress

I absolutely love the bold aqua in this dress! The print has a tropical look to it that’s perfect for summer, and so is the lightweight silhouette.

Madewell Linen Sundress

This Madewell mini is definitely one of the best summer dresses. Linen is the ideal summer fabric, and the pink is flattering on nearly every skin tone.

J.Crew Factory Strappy Tie-Back Mini Dress

I think this is a great “throw on and go” dress. Marigold yellow is becoming more and more popular, and I love the contrast between the vertical and horizontal stripes.

9 Seed St Barts Dress

Light and airy, this is one of the best summer dresses for vacations because of the versatility. You could easily wear it as a swimsuit coverup, as well as around town and at dinner.

Hyacinth House Monomoy Maxi Dress

A maxi like this is fairly timeless and can be worn for many summers to come. Plus, the bold red is SO beautiful! I also love the pockets.

Show Me Your Mumu Johanna Mini Dress

Another great coverup option is this mini dress. The cotton is super light without being see-through. The braided halter adds an elevated touch!

Petal + Pup Ava One Shoulder Maxi Dress

A white dress is the epitome of summer style! With this one, the fit is quite forgiving and the shoulder tie makes such a statement.

Reformation Bucatini Linen Dress

From the slightly scooped neckline to the buttons on the back, the feminine and classic touches on this dress make it stunning. I also love that it comes in lightweight linen.

Abercrombie & Fitch Emerson Poplin Wide Strap Midi Dress

Abercrombie has actually been one of my go-to sources for the best sundresses. I can see myself reaching for this midi all summer long. I also appreciate how it comes in petite, regular and tall lengths.

LOFT Striped Flutter Button Tiered Swing Dress

This dress is forgiving with feminine details like ruffled sleeves and a tiered skirt. The stripes add a little extra interest to the white fabric.
