As summer months really heat up, the first item I reach for in my closet is a lightweight casual dress I can throw on. I have picked out some favorites I already own and ones I might just need to add to my closet. Here are the top 25 Casual Dresses for Summer!
Blue Ruffle Sleeve Dress c/o / Clear Sandals / Silver Bracelets / Staud Mini Shirley Handbag
If you are a regular on the blog, I recently shared a post on What to Wear for 4th of July, highlighting lots of festive and fun summer items and accessories. In the July 4th post post, I mentioned that I was able to try on some new arrivals at a local Dallas boutique, Avara. One of the pieces I absolutely fell in love with was this blue dress. The ruffle sleeve is uber flattering. The dress is lined but still light and cool. If it comes out in more colors, I might just have to make it my new summer uniform!
I also fell in love with this chambray smocked dress. I wasn’t 100% sure on this dress, but now that I have worn it a few times I am hooked. This dress fits like a dream, and I feel very confident in it. I’m wearing an XS.
Another light and airy dress you have seen me in before is this soft light pink terry dress from my recent collaboration with Southcott Threads Summer Capsule Collection. This cool, easy fit dress can take you from day to night with a simple change of accessories. It is available and cotton candy, kiwi and white.
White French Terry Tunic / Sandals / Similar Basket Bag / Minnie Bracelets / Turquoise Bead Bracelet / Tres Gold Bead Bracelet / Gold Margaret Bracelet
Terry dresses can feel a bit heavy at times, but this French terry dress from my AWL Essentials Collection from Cabana Life will quickly change that thought when you slip it on. It has a tighter loop than a normal terry cloth fabric which makes it feel light like t-shirt material. All three colors are must haves!
White Shirt Dress/ Alicia Necklace / Alicia Earrings in Gold / Sandals / Woven Tote
The shirt dress has also made a big presence in the casual dress category. I have received a ton of compliments on This white shirt dress from Cabana Life. It comes in both the white and an adorable navy/white stripe version. Love this for an easy everyday look. Other shirt dresses to consider is this very cute belted number and this plaid dress with removable tie. It comes in a cozy-chic linen so it is light for the summer. And the good news is plaid never goes out of style!
Navy sleeveless dress/swim coverup c/o / Nude Sandals /Similar Straw Tote
This Helen Jon Navy dress is also the perfect throw and go for all summer long. I have listed many other options from tie dye, to tie waist t-shirt ones and both midi and mini ones so be sure to check them out in the boutique below!
