Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, summer is (unofficially) here. That means it’s time to pull out your swimsuits, crop tops and short shorts. Or, if you’re going for something a little bit chicer, try a flowy summer dress. This Fashionista looks casual and cute in a printed mini dress.

This look would be perfect for going out to lunch or shopping with friends on a hot summer day. There’s nothing easier than a little summer dress. All you have to do is throw on that one piece, and you’re done. No need to worry if it all goes together. Just add a pair of sandals and some jewelry and you’re good to go. Dresses are great for those really hot and humid days because they give you a little room to breathe, especially when they’re in soft cotton.

Summer dresses look a bit more put-together than shorts and a tank top and are more appropriate for places other than the beach. The print on this dress is fun and tropical. Sometimes it’s nice to add a little color to your look, especially in the summer. A colorful little dress is an easy way to break away from the usual all-black.

A trendy choker and stacked bangles complete the look. When choosing a printed dress it’s a good idea to keep accessories simple and uncomplicated. A lot of the time in the summer, we want to be able to throw on something simple and easy. This outfit is just that.

One Simple Change: For a vacation at the beach, wear your swimsuit under your summer dress for a comfy and easy summer look. Dresses make the perfect cover-up. You’ll be ready to go from tanning to dinner in no time.
