The weather is getting warmer and soon summer will be upon us – meaning trips to the beach, vacationing abroad, long walks outside and ice cream. So what can you wear to keep cool during those hot days when you’re feeling sweaty? Find yourself some cute summer dresses and you’ll be having fun in the sun in style and comfort! Here is a list of the top 10 cute summer dresses you can wear during those hot summer days.
1. Maxi Dress
One of the most diverse dresses to own this summer is the maxi dress. If you’ve been invited to a special occasion, you can wear it with a pair of heels and a nice up-do, but if worn casually, pair it with some cute sandals and a sun hat. Since maxi dresses tend to be made of flowy material you won’t feel warm because of its length, in fact, your legs will be shaded from the sun which will make you feel cooler.

2. Flowy Midi Dress
Midi dresses are the next best thing to the maxi dress and can be versatile summer dresses. They aren’t too long and neither are they too short, so if you’re hesitant about both lengths these are a good choice as a middle ground. Midi dresses with buttons coming down the front or belted around the waist are mostly trending in stores.

3. Off-The-Shoulder Dress
The off-the-shoulder dress is a perfect summer dress to wear during those hot days. You can wear your dress long or short, but having the shoulders exposed makes the dress more breathable around the chest area. Style it up by getting one with ruffles or long sleeves for those cold nights.

4. Cami Dress
The cami dress has been a staple as a summer dress for years. Its thin adjustable straps around the shoulders allows air to circulate down the chest and back. It’s a versatile look, so you can wear it bare or pair it with a t-shirt or long sleeve for those cooler days.
5. Short Bodycon
The bodycon dress is perfect as a summer dress if you’re looking for something more fitted to the body. You can wear it during the day with some sneakers and a jacket, or at night with a nice pair of sandals when you’re going out on the town.
6. Loose Mini Dress
If you’re not looking for something fitted to the body, a loose mini dress is the perfect summer dress. Most mini dresses will be cut in the front in a v-neck design for the season so you can glam up your dress with some stackable necklaces or long earrings.
7. T-Shirt Dress
One of the most laid-back styles of the season, t-shirts have now lengthened to become summer dresses. Simple and clean, the look can be stylized to fit your needs. Wear your t-shirt dress with a pair of white sneakers and some sunglasses and you’ve got an effortlessly chic look.
8. Tank Dress
Similar to the bodycon, the tank dress is another popular summer dress this season. It differs from the bodycon in the type of material used and how high it can go up the neck. Usually made from thicker material the tank dress is stretchy enough to frame your body. Since it can lay high up on the chest to your neck, pair it with a simple necklace and delicate earrings.
9. Slip Dress
The slip dress has crossed the border from lingerie to casual dress. Since it’s usually made of a lightweight satin material, it can be the perfect summer dress for you. Not only will it feel good on the skin, but the look of satin can be dressed down with a pair of sneakers or elevated with a cute pair of heels. Stuff it into your high-waist pants and make it into a shirt or tie it around your waist. With the slip dress, the possibilities are endless!
10. Overall Dress
One of the cutest trends of the season, the overall dress can be a perfect addition to your wardrobe this summer. Coming in an array of styles, the overall dress can also come in a variety of materials. It can be corduroy, denim, or even linen, so you can have fun and personalize it to your needs. Pair it with a shirt underneath and some comfy shoes and you’re set for the day!
