With Spring here and Summer just around the corner. Vacations are not far off. So now is a good time to start thinking about your summer wardrobe. If you are like me and like to find quick and easy outfits for the summer and especially summer travel, then you will like this post. Today I have put together 5 great summer dresses for your vacation, weekend getaways or just running around town. Summer dresses make getting ready a breeze. So here is my list of why summer dresses can be a great staple piece in your summer wardrobe. I tend to choose dresses that are at the knee or above; however, these same rules applies to the longer dresses which are also popular.
#1 – Easy Dressing
No mixing and matching tops and bottoms. Makes getting dressed a breeze especially if you are busy mom, career woman or just running errands around town. This dress pairs well with flats or sandals. A simple dress is the way to go. The above dress is from Title Nine and I actually own this one and I love it and have had many compliments on it.
#2 – Toss in the Washer…..No Dry Cleaning
This has to be my favorite thing about summer dresses. I love to just wash, wear and repeat. I have several that are made out of the quick drying material and they are great.
#3 – Packs Great
Summer trips are the best and what better way to enjoy them than in a cool summer dress. For weekend getaways or summer vacations dresses pack easy. You can roll them up and put in your suitcase and when you arrive at your destination. Take them out and hang them up. No wrinkles, no ironing. Just put on and go and have fun. I always pack several summer dresses when I travel. They don’t take up much room in your suitcase, which makes room for your vacation purchases.
#4 – Day to Night
Another great advantage to a great summer dress is that you can dress it up or down. And a lot of dresses can go from day to night with just changing out your jewelry and shoes and then adding a light jacket. Totally changes the look and you can easily do that with a black dress.
#5 – Great as Swimsuit Cover Ups
The last great thing I love about summer dresses are they can be used as a swimsuit cover up. When you get to the beach or pool, just roll it up and stick it your beach bag. Then when are ready to go in for a cooling cocktail, just throw it over your swimsuit and you are ready to go. I love this idea because you can make your dresses work double duty, plus it really does look better than a regular cover up.
I hope you have enjoyed this post. I would love to hear how you wear and style your summer dresses.
