One of life’s few certainties is that when summer bursts onto the scene, so do the cute dresses.
While forever synonymous with floral print and polka dots, summer dresses also encompass pastel colors, ruffles and other details that tend to hibernate in the winter. If a piece is lightweight, bright in color or shows at least a hint of skin, now is the time to wear it. (Bonus points if you can twirl in that perfect dress.) There are a ton of cute summer dresses out there to complement every woman's wardrobe, style and silhouette.
With those guidelines in mind, we’re looking at the sunny weather ahead and planning what fashion to wear for the rest of summer. ET Style has picked some of the best summer dresses including styles and fashion silhouettes, including a flare dress, a floral maxi dress, a V-neck dress, a mini dress, a sleeveless dress, a sheath dress and many more for you to add to your closet this season.
From fun and flirty to pretty and polished, shop our favorite summer dress trends below.
This midi dress is a girly girl’s dream: a vibrant pink hue, a refined square neckline, slightly puffy sleeves, a tiered ruffle skirt and a bow at the waist to tie it all together. The side slit on this pretty dress prevents it from venturing into overly sweet territory.
We’re getting major “the hills are alive” vibes from this free-spirited cotton midi dress. Whether you dress it up with sandals or down with sneakers, be sure to frolic in this pretty dress to your heart’s content.
We don't often think of HSN as a place for summer essentials, but we stand corrected thanks to this great dress. This easy-breezy chiffon maxi dress has elastic at the waist, meaning it's equal parts comfy and flattering.
When you want an outfit that's more relaxed than a button-down and pencil skirt, reach for this lightweight, breathable mini. It’s all in the details here: delicate lace trim, button cuffs, and a chic tie keyhole at the neckline.
Yes, you can still wear black in the summer and exude a fresh, fun vibe with this floral dress. This off-the-shoulder Billabong midi is a perfect example of how to do it with a pop of bright color. (You might want to keep a cute jacket on hand with this one.)
