Is it too early to start shopping for cute casual summer dresses? No, not at all.
It’s quite possible you’re reading this post while the weather outside is anything but reminding you of the beautiful summer moments we all enjoy. I’ve found myself in such a situation lately and as much as I (don’t) appreciate the cold winter months, I felt the urge to get myself some cute casual dresses for summer.
Times are changing (big time, huh) and it’s safe to say trends are too. No matter if you always find yourself impressed with the extensive glamour on the catwalk or prefer to take your shot at it, there’s something called classic style.
Get the little black dress, for example. Cliché or not, it still is the most preferred option for formal events, and it does add a certain spice to your overall look. So do the styles in this list.
Thinking about the better half of the year, I’ve gathered pieces that, with all the changes and adaptations happening in the industry, still promise you the most fashionable look this summer.
While designers have already shared their visions for the SS 2022 season, you surely don’t have to wait until June to refresh your wardrobe. Prepare in advance with the casual summer dresses I’ve carefully put together to show you in the list below.
As always, I can assure you, they are all made to last and stand the test of time. Now you don’t have to fall in love with the cute casual summer outfits Pinterest has been offering you lately. You can create one yourself.
7 Cute Casual Summer Dresses That Will Always Be In Fashion:
1. Gibson Dress
→ SHOP REFORMATION GIBSON DRESS
In case you didn’t know, Reformation is indeed the go-to destination for timeless dresses. By timeless, I mean ones that make you look stylish with little to zero effort.
This beautiful Gibson Dress is the perfect classy staple for many reasons. First, take a look at it. It’s white (read: sun-friendly)! Then, there is the beautiful straight neckline and 3⁄4 sleeves. It can easily be paired with anything in your wardrobe. Whether you want to go casual or formal, the choice is all yours.
Black sneakers and a hippie bag are necessary to complete the casual look. A pair of hoop earrings and platform heels are what you need for a more formal flair. You don’t need to be stuck with Zara summer dresses anymore, challenge yourself and try something new.
2. Midi Slip Dress
→ SHOP 12 STOREEZ MIDI SLIP DRESS
It’s safe to say that retro cuts will always be in style. While many people refrain from wearing midi slip dresses, I challenge you to add this one to your shopping cart ASAP. Why? Because it’s elegant and feminine, yet sexy and powerful.
Yes, the spaghetti straps and the sweetheart neck are no joke if you don’t have the Miranda Kerr type of body, but this piece is literally what you need for those summer party nights when it’s too hot to wear anything at all.
Maybe you can throw a (vegan) leather jacket on if you are feeling the breeze later in the evening. Aren’t cute long dresses just adorable?!

3. Rennae Dress
→ SHOP REFORMATION RENAE DRESS
If you think that summer day dresses can’t make a statement, think again. Allow me to tell you (politely, of course) that you are wrong. Very, very wrong.
Reformation’s Rennae Dress is the best example to prove my point. With its relatively relaxed and carefree fit, which breathes fresh air into your summer capsule wardrobe. This piece is what you should totally wear to all upcoming summer soirées.
Just add dark sunglasses, a couple of rings, and a small shoulder bag. Don’t act surprised if the guests start screaming ‘OH. MY. GOD’ like Janice from ‘Friends’. Okay, most likely they won’t, but your outfit will.
4. Organic Cotton V-Neck Dress
→ SHOP 12 STOREEZ ORGANIC COTTON V-NECK DRESS
As much as I enjoy seeing colorful dresses, the heart wants what it wants. Mine will somehow always be devoted to white. How could it be otherwise when it sees this Organic Cotton V-neck Dress?
Although it looks relatively simple, zoom into it, and you’ll see the draped detailing, the flared skirt, and the stunning V-neck which is no longer reserved for supermodels and only supermodels.
I see it as the perfect summer fit because you basically need a straw hat, and you’re ready to go to the beach. You know what people say, life’s better at the beach. I couldn’t agree more. Don’t forget the SPF though!
5. The Linen Open Back Dress
→ SHOP EVERLANE THE LINEN OPEN BACK DRESS
Light, breathable, casual-looking linen is what summer dreams are made of. Oh, I meant summer clothes, but this open-back dress is an absolute dream come true.
Being offered in the two most classic colors to ever exist, I’m certainly not suggesting (I absolutely am!) you should get both. The sleeveless fit makes it perfect for the days when you are slammed with business and personal meetings outside. The high crew neckline and the sexy back protect you when the sun is high and the UV levels are higher.
You take care of your cute casual date outfits by having this dress nearby. Trust me when I say your man will appreciate it as well. It’s not rocket science.

6. Oversized Striped Cotton Shirt Dress
→ SHOP & DAUGHTER OVERSIZED STRIPED COTTON DRESS
Looking for casual day dresses? Gotcha. For the past few years, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba have been practically reinventing the classic shirt dress. Telling you this, I hope you realize you don’t have to wait until summer for a stylish fix.
Pull yourself together and jump in one right now. My personal suggestion for when you want to try something different from your standard ASOS summer dresses is this beautifully striped cotton model, made of carefully sourced cotton.
As a blessing in disguise, the oversized fit helps you build the ultimate effortless summer #OOTD. Finish with light-washed denim and go for the low-rise cut if you like handshaking with the latest trends. It’s safe to say this shirt will never go out of style. Oh, and those buttons…
7. Linen Mini Dress
→ SHOP DEIJI STUDIOS LINEN MINI DRESS
It’s like 100°F outside (or worse, more like 1000), but you still have to attend the wedding of that cousin you use to play with every day when you were 9. Then the questions start coming in one by one. Where to find lightweight summer dresses? How I should wear them? Do I really have to go?
Deiji Studios’ linen mini dress has the perfect cut and length, so you can look great and try to pretend you’re not melting like Katy Perry in that slightly controversial ‘Bon Appétit’ music video. Bonus tip: don’t tie the ties, let them hang.
And as you may have already forgotten any memory of this video, you will not forget the dresses in this list, and neither will the people you wear them around.
