Beautiful sundresses for work, play and everything in-between

Women who wear jeans in the summer were cut from a different cloth. Like, if I was made from a cool cotton, then they were made from a how-could-you-possibly-not-die-of-heatstroke-in-that-outfit material. Now that we’re in the thick of summer, finding stylish looks is hard. What do you wear when sweat is pooling under your bra, your legs are sticking together, your hair is frizzy and wild, and your mascara melts off your lashes before you even make it to the car?

When it’s hot outside, your inner fashionista has to get creative. Jeans are (obviously) out of the picture, and black Nike shorts and oversized T-shirts aren’t really going to make it on any #OOTD boards. The perfect summer outfit is simple: sundresses! They are pretty, keep you cool and look great no matter what – from running errands to going to work. Give your denim a break and give some of these amazing dresses a try!

For Date Night

Whether you’re going to a concert with your hubby or grabbing drinks with that cute new guy from the office, you can’t go wrong with this gorgeous maxi dress from Target (for just $29.99!). This spaghetti-strap dress is pretty in pink, with a ruffled hem, cut-out back and rainbow-hued florals. Don’t let the price tag fool you – this dress is effortlessly sophisticated. Pair with hoop earrings, strappy wedges and a beaded bracelet to complete the look.

For Church

Jesus doesn’t care what you wear to His house, but it’s still nice to dress up for worship. This red Vince Camuto A-line dress ($138 from Macy’s) is beautiful and church-appropriate. The flowy number features a ruffled hem and tie-shoulders, with dainty white flowers sprinkled all over. Wear with your favorite cardigan or jean jacket, nude heels and silver jewelry.

For Work

Walk into work on Monday feeling confident and composed with this ice blue dress from Ann Taylor ($159). Highlights of the knee-length dress include: a pleated skirt with a breezy hemline, a short V-neck top with buttons and flutter sleeves, and a cinched waist. It is professional enough to don without a jacket, so you can look great and not overheat at the same time! Add a simple necklace, your favorite stud earrings and white pumps, and you’re ready to go.

For Vacation

Packing for vacation is so hard. It takes a special kind of outfit to go from a messy hair, sand-all-over, beach bum look, to dinner at the nicest ocean-view restaurant. We have the answer: this white sundress from J. Crew ($118)! The all-white gown features a deep V-neck and criss-cross back with gorgeous blue embroidery trim. It’s just right for a sexy night out or to show off your cute bikini underneath. Wear it with casual sandals or matching white sneakers.

For Errands, Brunch or Impromptu Photo Shoots

Everyone needs a go-to dress that is perfect for going grocery shopping, meeting friends for mimosas and waffles, or taking impromptu photo shoots when you happen to walk by colorful, Insta-worthy walls. Although technically not a sundress, this BCBGMAXAZRIA faux-wrap dress ($328) will meet all of your summer needs. It’s comfortable, it’s unique, it’s totally amazing. The maxi-length gown has loose-fitting, three-quarter length sleeves with a faux wrap and tie waist – like a fancy robe – and high slits up both sides. The red, blue and yellow stripes complete the one-of-a-kind look. You’ll be slipping on this dress for any casual or special event coming up, guaranteed.
