The Summer Dress Edit: Must-Have Dresses You Can Wear All Season Long

By  | 

The warmer temperatures of summer have started and you know what this means fashion-wise: it’s time to bring out our summer dresses! Summer and sundresses are so synonymous that the classic sundress is universally seen as trophy apparel when the warm temperatures of summer commence. Bevies of summer dresses sashaying everywhere will be seen, making this the most popular clothing piece for the season!

 

This year, summer dress trends are a dime a dozen, but we’ll be trimming that list for you, because why follow little trends when you can go for the must-haves, am I right? So without further ado, here they are:

 

The Slip Dress

 

The slip dress is the ultimate dress for the summer season. Comfortable, stylish, and oh-so-easy to wear, you can live on slip dresses all summer long! Dubbed as “underwear as outerwear”, those bold enough to rock this pajama-dressing trend and go out in a single scrap of silk are true fashionistas at heart!

 

Celebrities, style icons, and street style fashionistas are seen wearing this trend everywhere, so what better way to join them than to confidently strut out of your house wearing this trendy dress? This is the perfect season to wear these lovely silky pieces!

While the adventurous ones will boldly go out wearing nothing but the slip dress, you can always add something to the mix if you’re hesitant to wear the dress on its own. An offspring of the trend is to wear a t-shirt under the slip dress, something street style fashion lovers and even a few celebrities like Kendall Jenner have been seen wearing. Not a fan of the tee-over-dress look? You can always wear a blazer, jacket or cardigan over it to add to the très chic vibe!

Here are a few must-have slip dresses perfect for the summer:

The Maxi Dress

 

Next to slip dresses, the maxi dress is the penultimate dress when it comes to the sartorial line up of summer dresses that sit high on the trends list. This is the perfect alternative if you’re not feeling bold enough to wear the slip dress, preferring the long hemlines and romantic, chic frills and ruffles of the maxi dress. And not only is this versatile dress on point when it comes to the trends, the maxi dress can be worn day or night, for any occasion!
