Styles of Summer Dresses

There are a variety of dresses that are popular for summer outfits (and year round), and depending on the look and fit you’re going for will keep you cool, comfortable and looking beautiful in the summer season.

Maxi dresses are long dresses that reach your ankles or sometimes the floor. They are form fitting at the top, while the bottom of the dress tends to be flowy and loose. They are popular because they are free flowing and comfortable.

A midi dress is a dress whose hem ends halfway between the knee and ankle. A midi dress allows you to flaunt your flats or your heels, depending on your mood. You can even pair a midi with high-strapped boots for a night out.

A flattering wrap dress is a dress with a front closure formed by wrapping one side across the other, and is fastened at the side or tied at the back. It follows your body, enhancing and concealing at the same time, which is why it is great for all body types.

A casual cotton t-shirt dress is a soft and light dress similar to t-shirts but longer. They are great for lounging around home or pair it with a Jean jacket for a casual look if heading out. They come in a variety of neck styles including crew neck, v-neck, bateau, and scoop. Sleeve lengths also range from sleeveless to capped, short sleeved, 3/4 length, and long sleeved.

Shirt dresses look like a shirt. these typically have buttons that go all the way down, as well as a collar and pockets on the breast. It’s like an elongated version of a button-down work shirt, which is usually belted at the waist.

How to Wear a Summer Dress

An easy and chic way to style a flowy summer dress is by pairing it with a cropped or fitted outer top piece such as a denim jacket or sleeveless denim vest.

Wearing a hat and other summer accessories that compliment the colors of the dress will go beautifully as well.

What Kind of summer dress is best?
