Midi Dresses for Summer

I think this might be the summer of dresses. They’re so easy and effortless I find myself reaching for a dress most days. I’ve always loved a midi length dress because they’re so easy to style and wear. Work, the beach, going out to dinner, even just running errands, it’s classic and chic without feeling too fussy. I rounded up a few of my favorite midi dress styles for summer that are light, breezy and versatile. Are you feeling a pull towards dresses too? Months of staying inside have me wanting to dress up a bit!


Midi Dress for Summer

Madewell Gingham Sweetheart Midi Dress

This dress is comfortable, great quality and really cute. I wear it at least once a week. It fits pretty true to size (maybe a little big) and it’s machine washable. Shown above with these Madewell sandals.

Sézane Zarri Dress

An organic cotton, linen blend this midi dress from Sézane is a breezy, gorgeous white dress for summer (it also comes in black and yellow). I love the v-shaped back detail and the embroidery. So pretty for any occasion casual or dressy.

Hill House Home Ellie Nap Dress

Can you tell I’m excited about the nap dress? I can’t stop talking about it so I really hope it lives up to the hype. The newest drop features their Ellie nap dress in an artist designed custom print. I love the ruffle detail and smocking. They have sizes for little girls too. I ordered one for Marin.

Reformation Talita Dress

I love the updates 90s feel to this dress with the tiny floral print. It has smocking in the back with adjustable tie straps. Perfect for beach to dinner or a backyard BBQ.

Amour Vert Knit Dress

This striped midi dress looks very similar to one I got several years ago that I still absolutely love. It’s super comfortable and easy for hot summer days. This one comes with an adjustable waist tie.

Handmade Linen Wrap Dress (Etsy)

I love the silhouettes from this shop I found on Etsy. This linen wrap dress looks so breezy and comfortable for summer. It has thousands of 5 star reviews. There’s a gorgeous variety of colors to choose from too.
