One of my favorite things about summer is wearing bright prints and colors, especially in dresses. I am a dress girl. I mean, who wants to wear pants if you don’t have to, right? Plus, there is nothing better than putting on a pretty summer dress. I have seen so many gorgeous summer dresses this year, and it has me so excited.
One of my favorites that I came across was this maxi off the shoulder floral number from Forever 21. This dress is such a show stopper! It is perfect for any tropical vacation that you have slated on your calendar this summer. The sheer panel at the bottom provides a touch of sexiness without being overtly sexy. The colored band helps to break up the floral print nicely to give a great shape to the dress. The dress runs true to size. I have paired it here with gold jewelry and round over-the-shoulder straw bag.
The next dress that I am sharing is this bright pink maxi dress from Forever 21. The dress is super comfortable, but it is a little bit more daring than the floral dress above. The back of the dress is completely out with three bands going across the back. This shade of pink is so perfect and would look amazing on a variety of skin tones. The dress runs true to size as well.
Another great summer dress is this deep green one. I love the ruffle and button details, which are very on trend for this year. This dress is from Old Navy and runs true to size. I love where the length of the dress hits right at mid-calf.
Keeping with the ruffle trend, I wanted to share this white ruffle dress too! While I do love the color for summer, I also love a good simple white dress. This dress is from Target and runs a bit large. I would suggest to size down a size. I have paired it here with a brown belt to add a little more shape to it. This would also look adorable with white sneakers, a blue jean jacket, and a hair ribbon.
Another great summer dress is this blue jean button dress from Walmart. Check out my #skbthriftyfind post to read more about it it.

As I complete this post, I realize that I did not shoot any short dresses. I think I will do a separate post on short summer dresses. Let me know below in the comments if you would like to one.
