I personally think there is nothing more effortless than a summer dress for the hot days of the upcoming months. After the first sign of spring, I start building a collection of dresses for summer, and this year has been no different. Luckily the options have been better than ever. My latest favorites are tie front pieces, off the shoulder, and one shoulder styles. There are also some updated wrap & faux wrap designs that I adore.

Below I am sharing ten of my best summer dress picks followed by a tie front midi dress outfit from my own collection. I hope you discover something you love among these gorgeous pieces too that you’ll love wearing during summer days & nights.

I also want to point out that the famous Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is LIVE!! I am so obsessed with their online store, and their sales, and can’t wait to receive all I am ordering.

How pretty are these dresses? I already have the midi I am sharing below, kept this one shoulder from my latest Trunk Club, & ordered this printed beauty from the sale.


I always look for dresses that have a little twist, or design detail that set them apart from the MANY (and I mean many 🙂 ) I own already. I did not have a similar tie front dress with this lightweight of a fabric, and midi length.

Style Tip: As I mentioned in the beginning, the main reason I LOVE summer dresses (besides how cute they look of course) is their ease in terms of styling. With a summer dress, you just need the right accessories, and you’ve got yourself a quick, and put together outfit.

Here I styled my midi dress with neutral wedges that add height. Midi length can be tricky, especially if you are not really tall, and  the wedges provide that welcome lift which balances the proportions. Taking my cue from the shoes, I added more neutral accessories with my bracelets (get FREE MONTH of Rocksbox here) and introduced some sparkle & shine with the metallic gold shoulder bag. (similar bag here)
