We’ve waited all year for bright-colored florals and chic woven textures, and it’s finally warm enough to wear them! Whether you’re looking for dressier dresses for special events or resort-ready looks that you’ll be thrilled to debut on vacation, we’ve got you covered!
Dressy: It’s All About the Print
If you’re looking for a feminine look for a dressier night out or a day debut as a wedding or shower guest, a printed dress is always a winner. Summer prints in everything from modern florals to girly gingham are colorful, eye-catching and sweet. Look for figure flattering elements like a puff or flutter sleeve for a little arm coverage or a smocked waist to show off your curves. While the warmer weather is a great opportunity to pair shorter looks with statement heels, don’t disregard an easy to wear tiered ruffle midi. We love pairing vibrant prints with a neutral pair of heels or platforms for all day comfort.
Semi-Dressy: Pretty Printed Tops Paired with Trendy Jeans
For an effortless day-to-night look, you can’t go wrong with the classic combination of a straight leg jean paired with a colorful printed top. When selecting women’s tops in Summer, cool comfort is key—always opt for a lightweight fabrication in a great pop or color or compliment-worthy print. Thoughtful details like embroidery, smocking, flutter sleeves or a high-neckline make for an on trend, flattering look.
Summer denim in white or a lighter rinse and open toed shoes complete your look. June through September were made for your ankle-length, cropped jeans which pair beautifully with everything from ankle strap wedges to comfortable flat sandals. We recommend tying it all together with a woven straw clutch or tote for a beachy Summer vibe.
Casual-Cute: Shorts to Day Dresses
Keep it casual and cute this Summer in a great pair of cute women’s shorts or day dress. Whether it's running errands around town or strolling the local shopping district on your beach vacation, denim cutoffs are always a winner. Dress down your day to night printed tops with a flattering pair of jean shorts—we recommend a mid to higher rise with a 3” to 3.5” inseam. From a feminine puff or flutter sleeve to an elongating v-neck, denim shorts go with everything. Pair with your favorite white sneakers or flat sandals for a look that’s practical and will keep you comfortable all day.
When the heat is on, there’s nothing we love more than an easy, breezy day dress. From tiered ruffle midis to breathable baby doll dresses, there’s no better way to keep you cool and comfortable than wearing a flowy, lightweight dress. Maxi dresses are a great option, too, especially in solids that can be paired with colorful accessories like great earrings, colorful bracelets or a great hat. Let your favorite white sneakers and neutral sandals shine with your casual yet chic summer outfits and don’t forget a cute woven tote, clutch or straw hat to tie your look together.
