Although summer is a time usually associated with taking a few extra vacation days and relaxing in the warm weather, it’s easy for your calendar to quickly fill up with cookouts, family reunions and carting the kids to what seems like a billion activities! Before you know it, you’re constantly on the run, it hot temps no less.
Picking out a cute outfit that keeps you cool and looks put together when you’re in a time crunch isn’t easy. Our style tip? Easy, breezy summer dresses! One piece and you’re done. They are SO easy to slip on and style with your favorite pair of sandals or sneakers. Tie the look together with some delicate gold layered necklaces or earrings and you’re out the door!
If you're looking for a comfy and casual dress that is effortless, yet chic, look no further than our The Electric and Rose Catalina T-shirt dress! This 100% cotton dress is staple as both chic and incredibly versatile. The relaxed fit is extremely comfortable and breezy for those hot days. The 90s are having a moment, making these adorable cuffed sleeves super on-trend. Make a statement with a pair of bright sneakers (you know we love Golden Goose) or throw on a pair of sandals for a beachy vibe. Remember how we said it’s versatile? Throw on a pair of biker shorts underneath – perfect for more coverage on active days!
Looking for an elegant, yet still laidback option? One of our fave brands, Rails, makes the most beautiful (and breathable) lightweight midi dresses! The Rails Flower Vines Renata dress is a great option for a date night or evening cookout. Even though it has long sleeves, the lightweight fabric is so airy and keeps you cool. Extra details like fabric covered buttons, a smocked waistline, tiered skirt and floral vine print makes for a charmingly feminine look.
Tie dye is a MAJOR trend this summer. We love the Rebecca Minkoff Marta Dress in Coral Tie Dye for a subtle and pretty take on the trend. You’ll love the flattering obi belt for a cinched waist. BONUS TIP: We still have a few sizes left in this beautiful heather grey as well for the same great fit in a versatile neutral.
