Four Perfect Summer Dresses for Every Body

Four Perfect Summer Dresses for Every Body

’Tis the season for summer dresses - those breezy, easy-to-wear pieces that are such a welcome change from winter’s separates and tights. Here are our four current favorites - pick up one of each, and you’ll be able to get through the week without so much as one nothing-to-wear moment. 

 Safari Dresses 

These pristine, belted dresses are usually structured and modest enough for the office, but light enough to keep you comfortable on the commute. To add a bit of personality, switch out the belt that comes with the dress and add something more unexpected, like one in red or patent leather. 

"These ultra light dresses are a cinch to pack, and can go from beach cover-up to boardwalk two seconds. "

Short-Sleeve Wrap 

Another work-friendly option that shows just enough skin to keep you cool - wear it now with flat sandals, and transition it into fall with a pair of high-heeled boots and a couple of layers up top. 

 

Maxi Dresses 

These long, relaxed dresses are ideal for weekends, but with a denim jacket and a pair of sandals, they’ll also work in a casual office. On the weekends, we’d just throw on a pair of flip-flops and call it a day. 


T-Shirt Dresses 

Like a maxi dress, you can layer this one up and head to work (this time we’d probably pick a belted cardigan and a pair of wedges), of pair it with super-casual shoes and a ponytail for a laid-back al fresco dinner. Added bonus: These ultra light dresses are a cinch to pack, and can go from beach cover-up to boardwalk two seconds.

What’s your go-to summer fashion? What are you looking forward to wearing when the temperature rises?

    I teach in a school where we have no air conditioning, and once the warm weather comes, I live in dresses- especially maxi dresses and wrap dresses. Some cute sandals and a necklace, and I look pulled together, but am still cool.
