From LBD's to shocking graphic prints, there's a different dress for every type of girl. So get ready to raise your hemlines and reveal those glam gams with our list of the hottest 10 dresses you'll want to incorporate into your summer wardrobe.
Hotter Than an LBD
Attempting to move away from a routine is always difficult, especially when it comes to wardrobe choices. However, during the summer, breaking fashion rules, clashing prints, and showing bright colors comes naturally, even to the most stubborn fashionistas. For those city girls who prefer all black all the time, use the warmer season to break away and explore a brighter option like this tangerine Rag & Bone dress. The bright bold hue is offset by the asymmetrical shutter pleats, a combination that feels young and right now. Sexy sheer mesh inserts further highlight the waist for a flattering fit. Pair this dress with neutral sandals with sporty accents or silver flats for a full on modern look.
Sweet and Sexy
Not your typical chambray, this Charlotte Ronson dress has the 3 S's: sweet, sassy, and sexy. The silhouette and feminine print make for a girly frock but the subtly sexy cutouts at the waist and lace up details turn the girl into a woman. Since chambray is made out of cotton, this dress feels airy and comfortable against the skin. As a result, you will find yourself wearing this practical and versatile piece all summer long.
Art Meets Fashion
Sexy doesn't cut it when explaining this striking shift dress from McQ Alexander McQueen. Meant for those who enjoy the spotlight, the bold and bright colors including a splash of neon pink and deep navy, make for a psychedelic print that is captivating, to say the least. The molded scuba navy shoulder panels break up the heavy print and give this dress a touch of elegance. Pair this artistic dress with black sleek pumps and strong black accessories that won't compete with the sensational print.
Dazzle in one of the season's hottest colors, pale green, by wearing this fabulous sequined mini-dress from Alice + Olivia. While the dress is certainly dazzling, the pastel hue keeps the look from heading into disco territory. As a result, you will be able to shimmer in this dress both during the day and at night. As if this frock did not ooze enough sex appeal as it is, turn around to reveal a deep V back and an alluring tie closure. Pair this super hot mini with rose gold toned shoes for a contrasting look.
Show off your feline side in this figure-flattering animal print dress from Topshop. This versatile and classic print works every season, making this affordable buy a must. The sexy print becomes subdued and daytime appropriate thanks to feminine features like cap sleeves and a full skirt. To transition this frock into evening attire, cinch the waist with a studded belt and add black pumps.
Red is For Lovers
Red hot is an understatement when referring to this seductive lace dress from Lover. This high neck faille dress features scalloped eyelash edges at the lace bodice overlay that feels both vintage and very fashion forward. The scarlet color is seductive and beautifully complements any skin tone. Pair this alluring dress with gunmetal accessories for a finish that is modern and sexy.
Your New LBD
Looking for a new LBD? Try this killer lace bodycon dress from Free People. Made from a comfy textured knit, this short dress features a lace overlay that is both romantic and sexy. For those who refrain from bodycon shapes for fear of revealing too much, the ruched front seam on this LBD is super flattering and will hide any unwanted area. Another big plus? This LBD is versatile and can go from glam to edgy to sexy merely by switching up your accessories.
For those of you who prefer to go summer white, don't look further than this sweet LWD from L'Agence. Refined and polished, this ladylike dress is perfect for a romantic date or a girl's night out. The pristine white color feels like summer and is the perfect way to show off your new tan. This versatile piece works in a professional environment too. All you have to do is put on a structured jacket and sleek pumps and voila! Pair with fluorescent accessories like a neon clutch for a trendy look.
It's a Bold Summer
Summer is the season to go bold. For starters, work a cheery tropical theme like this printed dress from Zara. Zipper details at the shoulder and an open back lends this fun dress edge and city-appeal. Rock this dress on more than one occasion during your summer getaway by switching up your accessories or putting on a cardigan. This affordable frock is unique, sexy, and more importantly, guaranteed to make your closet happy.
Sleek and Sporty
For those city girls, who like their LBDs even blacker than usual, check out this super sexy dress from Alexander Wang. Mesh inserts gives off a sporty vibe while the fold over collar is puritan-chic at its best. While this textured knit is certainly uber sexy and revealing, the dark color makes it work in the most fashion-forward way possible. Pair this city-chic dress with sleek black pumps for the ultra monochrome look.
