How You’re Styling Summer’s Must-Have Dress

We’re just a month shy of summer’s official start, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead on perfecting your summer style. For the warmer months ahead, our focus is always on versatile pieces that are flattering, comfortable, and work as an all-in-one outfit so you can go from sunrise to sunset in style without missing a beat. Any guesses as to which piece is our pick? Hint: it’s the Summer Dress. Whether you’re wearing it in willow, navy, black, or white, when it comes to the Summer Dress, the styling opportunities are endless. Let these four looks serve as proof that the key to unlocking sundress style relies on one single element: you.

1. Elevated in Neutral Tones

For seasonal entertaining and days out and about, we take notes from Samantha Wennerstrom’s stylebook and pair like with like in the form of lighter shades and neutral tones. Add some casual structure to the Summer Dress silhouette with a sweater tied around your waist. Plus, you’ll be happy to have a cozy layer as the day stretches into the evening.

2. Coastal Meets Bohemian

Nothing says summer style quite like the soft, earthy shade of willow. Hayley Feldman pairs this seasonal neutral with a textured knit and a woven hat, adding an element of interest and day-to-night ease that is destined to work with absolutely anything that’s on your sunny day itinerary. Try playing around with different shoes and accessories for a reinvented look every day of the week.


3. Dressed-Down Ease

Days are simply better in the Summer Dress—especially if that means you’re lounging about in your very own home. Daniella House takes this mindset to heart with a decidedly effortless look in our navy favorite with special accessories. Add a pair of everyday earrings and a layer in our best-selling blue for a cozy and comfortable take on summer’s finest.

4. Sunshine Simplicity

One of the best facets of the Summer Dress is the fact that it works as a standalone outfit in a mere instant. For Megan Karp, looking put-together only requires the Summer Dress and a dose of sunshine. Be sure to bring along a hat and a pair of sunglasses and you’ll be well on your way to having your best-dressed day.
