I like summer mainly because of: music festivals, summer blockbusters, mobile ice cream trucks, the smell of freshly applied sunscreen, etc.

One of our favorite things this season is the chance to wear the quintessential sunny uniform: a summer dress. It's a lightweight, effortlessly flattering piece of clothing that will keep you cool and look stunning on the hottest of days.

You can wear this versatile summer dress for a night on the town or a quick trip to the corner store. This summer dress needs no accessories other than your favorite strappy sandals, but can be paired perfectly with your floppy sun hat, turquoise jewelry or flower crown. This outfit will have you wowing every time you step out.

For a slightly more subtle example of a bubble dress look, we love this design from ASOS. It not only has a romantic, slim cut and flowy skirt, but also an elegant interwoven jacquard pattern.

Free People Cross of Sunlight Mini Dress 

A visit to Free People is guaranteed to accidentally buy three new dresses you didn't know you needed - so proceed with caution. The sunny cross is the perfect example of one of their irresistibly cute summer skirts. With a sweetheart neckline, puffed sleeves and cutout sides, this dress is a date night must-have.

Lace Surplice Cutout Mini Dress

Forever 21's lace twill cutout mini dress can be paired with flats for a daytime look, or heels and elegant jewelry for a special evening. No matter what you decide to wear, you'll look summery and sweet.

The Grace Tiered Ruffle Mini Dress from Francesca’s enchants with its swishy skirt and sublime sage color. Pair it with flip-flops or wear it barefoot for a look that is pure summertime.

The Jane Puff Sleeve midi dress from Urban Outfitters is the summer fashion trifecta: cute, comfy and cooling. It features a romantic floral print and bow detail, as well as a swingy skirt and puff sleeves.
