The Shirt Dress…

The Shirt Dress… The crème-de-la-crème of lightweight dresses! The white version of this dress is perfect for showing off your tan, and makes accessorizing effortless – add tan gladiator sandals and a cute necklace, and you’ll be ready for any temperature without a fuss. If you fancy more color, opt for the duck egg blue version. Pastels are totally gorgeous in the sunlight! Both are available at Anthropologie.


The Polka Dot Dress…

The Polka Dot Dress… Got a waist that needs defining? This is the dress for you. It’s super comfortable, and the fabric is light and floaty, with that feeling that makes you want to twirl. The sizing is good, too – there’s plenty of room in the chest area, without the dress becoming much shorter. The polka dots give this a retro vibe, and I love the subdued take on the look – gray and light blue are super easy to coordinate. Dreamy. Get it at Anthropologie for $118.


The Draped Dress…

The Draped Dress… If you love the hi-lo hemline, you’ll adore this Anthropologie dress. Super lightweight, the comfortable and flattering fabric ensures you’ll stay cool and collected, and the ruching and wide shoulder straps make it perfect for everything from relaxing on the beach to going for a moonlit walk. It’s just perfect. For the evenings, add sparkly shoes and a long necklace. In the day, go for ballet flats. Win.


The Crazy Print…

The Crazy Print… Prints are everywhere this season, and this dress is the perfect way to rock them. The nude and cream pattern reminds me of elegant France, and that bold blue is the perfect way to spice it up. If you want vintage elegance, this is the pencil dress for you! Just add some dainty earrings and nude pumps, and let the dress do the talking. Find it at Anthropologie for $138.


The Retro Dress…

The Retro Dress… What do you think of when you picture a vintage beach? Candy stripes, right?! This dress captures them perfectly, with bold, bright colors that coordinate well and spruce up the neutral dress. It’s lined to give it that vintage shape, and to hold the fabric away from your body – perfect for staying cool when it’s hot outside. This dress is ideal for wearing to work, to the beach, to visit your parents…that neon embroidery will impress everyone. Strappy wedges and a statement necklace are essentials to finish the look! You can get the dress and the accessories at Anthropologie.


The Lace Dress…

The Lace Dress… Lace is everywhere this year, and your wardrobe should be no exception. There’s a definite 1920s feel here, with the swing dress shape looking elegant, but it’s been given a wearable feel with the addition of boho fabrics and romantic embroidery. It’s a totally wearable and gorgeous look, without the effort! It looks great worn with sandals, or play up its charms by layering on some delicate necklaces. It's $188 at Anthropologie.


The Tailored Dress…

The Tailored Dress… Looking for lightweight dresses that you can rock in meetings too? Opt for something tailored, yet still comfortable. This Anthropologie dress is actually a gorgeous dark navy in person, and the fabric is thick enough to smooth out bumps and flatter your figure without making you sweat like a pig. To keep cool, ditch a jacket and rock it on its own with court shoes and a satchel. A bold necklace – I’m thinking orange would look gorgeous with the navy and cream – will finish the look perfectly.

Finding lightweight dresses that are stylish, comfortable and easy-to-wear can be a challenge, but with this selection, you can’t go wrong. Anthropologie is definitely on fire this year! Have you found any great lightweight dresses? I’d love to see what you’re lusting after!

I like the tailored dress, very pretty.

I think I get the lace dress @ anthroplogie to get married in.

The tailored dress is nice and many of them are. It's beautiful, but yes it seems expensive. It's great to be inspired though. :)

I love Anthro! 4 & 5 are to die!

The 4th one is soo unique, I LOVE THAT!!

Would have been nice to see another brand than Anthropologie ... Do you work for them ?!

This seems more like an advert for anthro than what the title suggest.

These are expensive can we get a list similar for people on a budget
