Dresses You Can Wear from the Beach to Dinner

Dresses You Can Wear from the Beach to Dinner

Summer goals: Maximize your beach time, look fabulous and pack light (we know, that last one can be tough). Here are six stylish dresses that are versatile enough to wear from day to night. Dancing at Sunset Beach later?

OFF-THE-SHOULDER RUFFLE DRESS

It’s the ultimate chic summertime look, especially if you opt for an above-the-knee hemline. It’s carefree and bohemian when worn accessory-free by day, and chic and polished when paired with statement jewelry after dark.

FLORAL MINI

There’s a reason florals are a staple: They can be dressed up or down. The growing athleisure trend also means wearing a printed mini with sneakers (even by night) is totally acceptable.

CUTOUT DRESS

Nothing says summer like some strategic peekaboo placements. What’s especially great about this trend is that it helps you keep cool even if you opt for a long silhouette.

LACE DETAILS

This look is fun and playful with sneakers during the day, but stylish and sophisticated when paired with heels in the evening.

COLORFUL SHEATH

Sheath dresses are figure flattering, and a high neckline and knee-length hem make it the perfect style for transitioning from beach to cocktails. If you opt for a bright print, you can go from day to night with little more than the swap of a shoe.

BREEZY MAXI

“Sexy” doesn’t always mean “formfitting.” You can opt for something loose and sexy by pairing a boho silhouette with a high slit. The spice of the slit will also eliminate the need for heels, even at night. Yesss , it’s also breathable and perfect for long walks in the sand.
