I love wearing dresses in the summer. Not only are they cool on hot days, they make getting dressed a “no brainer.” There’s nothing easier than slipping into a breezy frock and dressing your ensemble up or down with shoes and accessories. I especially like dresses that won’t wrinkle when I pack them for a weekend getaway to the beach or mountains.
Here are my favorite comfortable summer dresses (and they are all currently on sale):
- Softwear by Swann® Suddenly Slender™ Knit Dress
Available in solid black, maroon or black with white polka dots (my personal pick), this adorable dress is oh-so-forgiving thanks to a ruched waistline. The easy-care polyester-spandex knit is wrinkle resistant, making it perfect for traveling. Pair it with our Classic Cardigan Sweater and wear it into the fall.
- UltraSofts® Mia Sailor Dress
I love stripes, and the combination of horizontal stripes on top and diagonal stripes on bottom along with a v-shaped waistline make this dress super-flattering. Made of our easy-care, cotton-polyester interlock knit, which won’t wrinkle in your suitcase, it’s another good pick for traveling. Pair it with one of our nautical accessories. (See my blog post “5 Must-Have Nautical Accessories” for ideas.)
- National® Crinkle Cotton Dress
Why do I love this dress? Let me count the ways. First, it comes in a rainbow of beautiful colors. You can’t go wrong with any of them. Second, it is lightweight, all-natural crinkle cotton, which means there is no need to iron it—ever! Finally, it is flowy and easy to wear with a pretty ruffled hem and patch pockets to hold essentials, like my keys, cell phone, and some tissues.
