These summer dresses on Walmart.com will make you want to give up pants! I made quite the roundup with several fashionable styles that work for everyday errands or your next special event. One of the benefits of buying clothes online from such a large retailer is they generally make styles that look good on a large percentage of the population. When you combine that with designer-inspired colors, trends, and design details you have a winner for your wardrobe. Check out my professional stylist-approved styles for every body type, all under $50!
EMPIRE WAIST SUMMER DRESSES
Empire waist dresses look good on 9/10 women. If you’re petite, an empire waist visually starts your waist higher elongating your leg line. Empire waist dresses also do a great job of hiding a poochy tummy.
This one-shoulder style has pockets, and a fashionable tie on one shoulder, and comes in this fuss-free wrinkle-resistant crinkle cotton.
This v-neck style is so flattering because it’s not too poofy through the body, but is loose enough to float over it. The pink is sold out in XS but comes S-2xl. You can still score the preppy stripe in al sizes.
This designer-inspired knit dress is so flattering. It has wide straps to cover your bra and a nice open neckline. The wrap illusion and umpire waist are so slimming.
SHIRT DRESSES FOR SUMMER
Shirt dresses never go out of style. This summer they are on everyone’s wish list. Make one part of your work wardrobe or a new casual outfit cornerstone. I’m 5’4″ and wearing an xs in the pink stripe. All of the shirt dresses I’m sharing are 35 or 36″ long. This is a good length for most women.
Busty Body Types – This long-sleeve summer dress fits loose and runs roomy. This style also has a flattering open neckline and sleeve length for busty body types.
Small Straight Body Types- I just got this dress in the mail and love it! It looks so expensive. The belt can be tied tight to show off a small waist. You can even substitute the fabric belt for this cool woven style. The eyelet texture and puff sleeves add femininity and volume to a small straight body type.
Pear Shape or Square Body Type- The flutter sleeves give some shape to your shoulders and keeps this dress from looking too boxy. However, my favorite thing about these $17.98 dresses is their washable cotton polyester blend fabric. I hate ironing and this seersucker fabric is a dream, right out of the dryer.
Petite Hourglass Body Types Tip- Try belting and blousing this style.
This might be your new favorite little black dress for work! Look at the quality design details including a covered button placket and darts!
After-Hours Accessory Swap
Trade in your work bag for this fun summer tote and your heels for these stylish sandals.
SUMMER SLIP DRESS
Any Body Type- It’s no secret that the summer dress style I suggest the most is a slip dress. The most expensive styles are cut on the bias. This fun floral slip dress isn’t, but it does have adjustable tie straps. The straps are so pretty and practical! You can easily adjust the neckline to accommodate any body type.
Wear one to a wedding with a pretty white blazer or out to dinner with a jean jacket and sandals. Give the straight silhouette some shape with a belt or style it loose over a tank or tee like me.
