Lulu’s aptly named “Easy on the Eyes” maxi dress is the ultimate feminine staple for this summer. Here is a style that will carry you comfortably from a beachy picnic to a sexy date night. It works equally well dressed up with classic wedges, or dressed down with a pair of easy slides. Choose between a variety of colors – yellow, cream, red or green with a delicate flower print.

We love the structured style of this pleated mini dress from Zara. Details like a lapel shirt collar, elasticated cuffs and a contrasting belt all add to the summery allure of this style. Throw in a flouncy hem and buttons all down the front and you’ve got a verified summer winner that belies its bargain price.
NAVY BLUE NOTIONS
No matter what the weather, sometimes only a little black dress will do. May we suggest a lighter summer alternative? This A-line design from ShopBop comes in elegant navy blue and has that same edgy sophistication usually seen on classic LBDs. Pair this mini style with shimmery metallic jewelry for a summer glow like never before.
Snap this one up asap! This midi slim-fitting style from Bershka has all the must-have summer stylings. Vertical stripes of contrasting densities work wonders for slimming down the figure, while a cheeky strappy halter-neck on the bodice adds a flirty twist. Pair this dress with everything from sturdy wedges to slinky Perspex block heels to switch up the look.
IN LIVING CORAL
When the temperature hits boiling point, only a lightweight, draped dress will do. This vintage midi style by Free People is available from Revolve for a steal. Classic details like its deep V-neckline and sash tie accent at the bust make this one second to none. That’s not even mentioning the rich coral hue – the perfect accessory to show off a golden tan!

Not much is needed to style this white cover-up dress from Nastygal. With its easy free-flowing silhouette and lightweight fabric, this dress works equally well over a string bikini as it does paired with summer wedges and a denim jacket.
Did someone say sunset sundowners? We have just the outfit. This glittery sequined dress from H&M is the perfect choice for a summer night on the town. All that’s needed are your trusty stilettos to round off the 90s look. It’s even got a svelte jersey lining to keep you comfortable all night long.
