4 Summer Dress Style Tips You Won’t Want to Miss

As soon as the forecast has even a mention of sun, we turn to the piece that’s synonymous with the season: the Summer Dress. Our version of the classic maxi sundress, its dreamy silhouette and collection of colors situates itself as the ideal attire for anything from poolside days to evening dinner parties—but the true beauty of the Summer Dress is its built-in versatility and ability to make it your own. Whether you’re dressing it up with heels or keeping it casual with beach day basics, let these four outfit equations serve as your point of inspiration for looking and feeling your best this season.

Outfit Equation # 1

We’re all about looks that you can wear just about anywhere without missing a beat—this outfit equation checks those boxes with ease, making it the perfect ensemble for nights out with friends, afternoons with your mother-in-law, and brunch with your BFF. We love the Alpaca Cocoon Cardigan any time of year, but pairing it with the Summer Dress in black is a surefire way to ensure you’re prepared for any chance of cloudy skies, while the elevated Oiled Leather June Block Heel will swiftly transform an everyday outfit into something special.

Outfit Equation #2

With a casual flair that exudes California-cool, this outfit is all but essential when it comes to seasonal style. It’s easy to see why the Summer Dress in the cool shade of navy exemplifies the many feelings of coastal living, and we find that leaning into this aesthetic calls for one thing: versatile accessories. Our Canvas Skater Sneaker gives this maxi dress style a relaxed touch that’s undeniable—don’t forget about the Safari Hat to finish it all off.

Outfit Equation #3

We love monochromatic moments—full stop. That’s what makes this cozy and classic equation a top pick in our weekly rotation. Grab the Cashmere Boyfriend Sweater in willow and pair it with the Summer Dress of the same shade for a style that’s nothing short of a perfect match. Chase that spring feeling with our footwear of choice: the Oiled Leather Strap Sandal that will ground you (and your outfit) in the quintessential stylings of the season.

Outfit Equation #4

A classic in its own right, the Summer Dress works in perfect harmony with two iconic pieces: a good pair of Mules and a bucket bag. We love the way the Mini Oiled Leather Bucket Bag in laurel pops against the white Summer Dress, but the look really finds its footing with the most understated and essential piece of all: the Suede Mule. If you want some height (or you’re feeling fancy), try our Oiled Leather Kitten Heel Mule for a reimagined take on a classic.
