Trendy Summer Shift Dresses You’ll Adore!

The 4th of July has now come to a close, and one thing is definitely for sure, summer soiree and wedding guest season is upon us! One dress trend I love for summer and throughout the year is the shift dress! Like many of you, I love to purchase items that I can wear time and time again, and the trendy yet classic shift dress is definitely one of those items. Shift dresses look fabulous on everyone!

They’re perfect for summer wedding guest season, Sunday brunch with your besties, date night after work, cocktail parties, your sister’s bridal shower, Kentucky Derby inspired parties, your cousin’s baby shower and so much more! I also love that you can dress a shift dress up or down with your accessories. For example, you can dress a fun shift dress down with the hottest wedge sandals of the season, trendy platform espadrille sandals, and cute flat sandals; or dress it up with your favorite embellished heels for a glam evening out!

If you’re searching for a fab shift dress for summer wedding guest season, brunch, bridal showers and more, you’re in luck! I scoured the net and found absolutely gorgeous summer inspired shift dresses in every style, color, print, trend and price range that you’ll adore for this season and beyond!
