Summer is coming, and with it comes vacations, beach trips and long days in the hot sunshine. To help you get ready for the warm weather, we compiled a list of the best sundresses on the market that can be worn for a morning brunch or an afternoon at the beach!


  1. Zara Flowy Printed Dress, $69.99



If you aren’t into the typical pastel colors that usually dominate the spring style scene, this printed dress is perfect for you. Featuring a modest v-neck collar and long sleeves, this dress offers full coverage without seeming demure. A thigh-high slit adds a sultry flair that makes this great for any date night.


2. Perfect Florals Sage Multi Maxi Dress, $108



This halter-neck dress is exactly what you need for Sunday brunch with your girls. Style it with a cute pair of strappy sandals and a straw hat, and you’re ready for a morning of mimosas and avocado toast!


3. Endless Summer by Free People 200 Degree Minidress, $88



Short and sweet, this dress features crocheting detail that adds a bohemian vibe. With a loose, flowy skirt, open back and v-neck, this dress can be worn as a cover-up and paired with flip-flops at the beach, or styled with a jean jacket and woven wedge sandals for a fun evening at a tiki bar.


4. Black Halo Bethel Sheath Dress, $375



The most expensive item on this list, this sheath dress from Anthropologie is worth every penny. A fitted, knee-length dress with a fun floral print, this can be dressed up with a pair of heels and a cute clutch for dinner on Easter Sunday, or dressed down with a pair of flats and a cardigan for an easy daytime look.


5. Cindy Floral Border A-Line Dress, $48



Got a hot date at the beach? This A-line dress is exactly what you need. The keyhole cutout and blue floral border add a flirty touch that makes this perfect for a night out with your sweetheart. Finish off the look with block heels, a cute tote and a layered necklace.


Whatever your plans for this summer are, you definitely need to add these dresses to your shopping list!
