With so many brunches, barbecues, and picnics to attend this summer, you’ll need the perfect dress to rock all season long. A button-up dress is a breezy casual option that you can dress up or down. Fair warning: once you find your perfect cut and fit, you’re going to want to wear it on repeat this summer!
Here are some of our favorite styles and how to wear them:
Achieve a laidback vintage vibe by picking up a black and white polka dot midi. Dress this outfit up with some dainty accessories for extra style points.
Pump up the drama in a colorblocked version with sheer lace details.
Wouldn’t you agree that this pretty little number is worthy of any wedding or celebration?
White midi dresses with big buttons have been all over the fashion scene, and we definitely don’t mind.
There’s something to be said about dressing for success. The quarter sleeves, dress length and collar on this dress make it work-appropriate, and it’s cute enough to wear to dinner right after!
This simple short button-up dress is cute and comfy for the everyday fashionista.
A midi dress is a flattering and versatile piece for a busy summer season—wear it to all your barbecues, music festivals, and summer date nights. It’s the perfect effortless piece to throw on for any occasion. Not too short, not too long, casual with sneakers, and more dressed up with sandals, it’s easy to see why midi dresses are a warm-weather staple.

For those grab-and-go days, throw on a breezy striped wrap dress and a low heeled sandal, and you’re ready for anything the day throws at you!

Clueless about what you should wear to that end-of-summer wedding? No worries—I’ve put together not one, but six different options. Here are my favorite wedding guest outfit ideas for your next love-filled celebration:
A floral number that hits above the knee is a perfect choice for attending a wedding in. Pair it with an adorable clutch that holds your essentials.
If the dress code calls for something more formal, lean towards a dress in darker colors. Rock an A-line off-the-shoulder dress with your hair swept to the side for a polished, timeless look.
When it comes to the late summertime, don’t be afraid to wear a dress that has a bit of sass to it. Opt for a dress with a small cut-out or slit to keep it flirty yet appropriate.
Keep it minimal and chic with a simple dual-toned dress.
A wedding reception is the perfect opportunity for you to bring out that vintage piece you stored away. Your look will be unique and one-of-a-kind!
For an outdoor wedding, an off-the-shoulder dress in a light, breathable material is practical and fashion-forward. Not only will it photograph well for Instagram, you don’t have to worry about it getting too hot to wear.
A slip dress is one of those rare, versatile pieces that be styled for any occasion in any season. A classic wardrobe staple, it can be layered over a simple tee for a casual look, dressed up with your favorite fun heels for a date, or layered under a chunky knit in the cooler months. Lately, I’ve been searching for the perfect slip dress to add to my wardrobe using my favorite bloggers as inspiration. Take a look at some of my favorite slip dress outfit ideas!
Aimee, Song of Style
Aimee shows the versatility of her midi slip dress by layering it over both a white tee and denim. For a simpler look, you can leave out the denim and just layer it with a white tee. Check out Aimee’s favorite ways to style a slip dress in her YouTube video here.

I love Camille’s dusty rose slip dress paired with a simple tee and sneakers. Perfect for running around town all day in style!

A slip dress with gathered details like Jenny’s stands perfectly on it’s own.
Madelene, The Basis
I love how Madelene takes her slip dress into fall simply by adding a classic coat and a hat.
Cecilie, By Krog
A classic, everyday look, Cecilie pairs her slip dress with a tee, denim jacket and slides.

Create a structured, modern look by adding a blazer to your slip dress. Wearable from the office to date night, you can’t go wrong with this look!
