You need these dresses in your summer wardrobe

With summer approaching, now is the perfect time to step up your dress game! Looking for the perfect dress to wear to your friend’s graduation? Need a cute blanket for a day at the beach with friends? Or maybe you just want a dress that looks remotely swappable to pop out of your sweatpants this summer? Whatever the purpose, I promise this article will introduce you to the summer dress you’ve always needed!

1. The shirt dress

Check out the shirt dress, otherwise known as the brunch dress of dreams.

But seriously, your friends will be all the envy of style when you arrive for brunch at your favorite café in this simple yet chic dress. Obviously, however, the versatility of this dress doesn’t end there. Dress it up in heels and head to work. Put on some big sneakers and I’ll meet you at the stadium on game day.

2. Long dress

Who said covering up had to be boring? Personally, I love nothing more than a long, loose, puffy maxi dress. Forget the struggle with hot, restrictive clothes in the sun – the summer heat won’t know what hit it when you style your summer with this must-have.

3. Puff Sleeve Dress

Should I even expand? Cute but classy. Sleek but elegant. With timeless appeal, you can’t live without filling your closet with puff sleeve dresses. If you’re not too into accessories, this is the style for you – the sleeves on these dresses speak for themselves!

4. Denim dress

Not to play favourites, but I know that as soon as the lockdown restrictions are lifted, this will be the first dress style I want to wear. Most of us love denim overalls, but I think it’s time to give the same respect to their sartorial counterpart. Button up or button down – it doesn’t matter! Your retro-chic energy will speak for itself and you’ll never be trendier.

5. Halter Neck Dress

Getting a tan has never been easier than now, with the halter neck dresses that have made an appearance. You won’t even have to think about the heat in this stylish staple, and you can go midi or maxi length depending on the occasion. I know I loved the puff sleeve dresses above, but for some, less is more, and this dress epitomizes that idea.
