Wear it Wednesday: Summer Dresses Edition

My favorite thing about summer is the ease of wearing a dress everyday for everything and being perfectly casual, chic and comfortable the entire time. Today, I'm (Adventurous Shelby) sharing my top 3 summer dress cuts for the warmer season and how to wear them!


I love a good maxi, there are no official rules on where maxi dresses and skirts are supposed to fall. I like mine just above my foot so I can walk easily without tripping over myself. And if I want it shorter, you can always tie a knot on one side, showing off your shoes, ankle and making walking easier, especially in the sand at the beach!

This universally flattering cut is perfect for those of us with a curvy lower half, as it skims past the hips, not adding more volume. Most of these dresses look great under a blazer with heels for work or with sneakers and a cross body for a casual weekend ready look, depending on the print!

If you have a long torso and feel it's hard to pull off an Aline because the waistline doesn't fit right, a shift is perfect alternative for you. You can leave it flowy and loose or add a belt at YOUR waistline! It's not essential to add anything to a shift but if you feel like you're wearing a bag then work with a few fitted tops to even it out, like a denim jacket, blazer or belt.

What is your go-to summer dress style?
