It’s always such a treat to go on vacation anywhere. Visiting a new place is exciting, and going back to somewhere familiar is friendly and inviting. There’s so much to see and do, so many stories to tell, and so many memories to make, which includes taking a ton of photos.
If you’re going to be in lots of pictures from your trip, you’ll want to look and feel your best since you’ll be looking at these photos long after you’ve come home. Whether you’re looking for petite, regular, or plus size summer dresses, there is a style out there for you. Want to leave an impression wherever you go? Here are the best dresses to wear that are perfect for your summer vacation.
For the beach
Who doesn’t love soaking up rays on a beautiful white sandy beach, overlooking the rich, turquoise-colored water? The beach is fun, light, and summery, so a dress to match might be flouncy, have a cute pattern, and sleeveless. If you really want to feel like a beach goddess, maxi dresses are the way to go. They’re flattering, they flow nicely, and are perfectly paired with floppy hats and oversized sunglasses for that chic bohemian vibe. It’s also usually pretty windy on beaches, so you might want to go with a longer hemline to avoid any unwanted accidental exposures.
For the city
When traveling through cities, it’s best to avoid looking like an obvious tourist to prevent any headaches that come with scammers and the like. Wearing similar styles as the locals is a good way to blend in while still looking chic. You might find it beneficial to do some research (also known as scrolling through Pinterest) before you travel and see what kinds of dresses are popular. Bring the ones that are similar to your closet, or buy some when you get there!
If you’re spending a night on the town and hitting up popular bars or restaurants, you’ll want a dress that’s trendy and maybe even shows off a little skin. Dazzle your date or impress your friends with a clingy knee-length (or shorter!) bodycon dress. If you’re feeling bold, choose one with a more interesting neckline, rather than the classic sweetheart or crewneck. Don’t forget to match your accessories – neutral colors are always a safe bet and always look classy.
Dresses can be a blessing on a hot, sticky day of travel, but you want to make sure it’s a practical dress, too. The most important consideration is the comfort level of the dress since you’ll probably be wearing it all day and walking around a lot. Make sure it’s long enough, so you aren’t constantly pulling it down and worrying about the back flying up in a gust of wind from a passing car. Also, make sure it’s comfortable enough that you can sit and stand in it without awkwardly maneuvering in and out of your seat. There are even dresses with pockets, so you don’t have to fumble with your purse every time you want to grab your phone and take a photo.
Dresses come in so many shapes and styles with all kinds of patterns or designs on them, so it’s difficult not to find one that’s perfect for you and whatever your travels bring. You don’t need to sacrifice your cute style while you’re on vacation!
