Summer Dresses

Summer weather is here! Whether you are baking under the hot Texas sun, or just slightly sweating (uh, I mean glowing) in the Northern sun, there's no better way to keep cool (that's in temperature) while looking chic than the perfect summer dress. If you are going to update your wardrobe with just one item this season, make it a dress. The right pair of shoes and some accessories can take you from walking the dog, to dancing the night away, all in the same frock. Summer is the best season to really show your colors, in fun prints that is! But we'll get to that in a second. First, the basics. The LBD. Little. Black. Dress. It's just one of those things that should be in every woman's closet, any age or any style, it's a must-have. (From left to right.) We have a few great options this summer. The Groceries Apparel hemp/organic cotton Pencil Dress with a little cap sleeve works great paired with colorful Inkkas, or dressed up with a wedge. Just add some jewelry to complete either look. And the Threads 4 Thought LBDs have just the right amount of detail to update this classic look. We love the mesh waistline and straps in the Sonoma Dress, and the flirty lace overlay in the Hudson Dress.

100% vegan, 100% recyclable Melissa Shoes Doris Spikes are a great compliment to any LBD. Not only are they a super cute alternative to heels, but they are incredibly comfortable. I'm not kidding, I walked over a mile in mine the other night! And no summer outfit is complete without a pair of shades. Protect your vision with the Woodzee polarized Sierra Bamboo Sunglasses.

When you aren't keeping it classy (as if that ever happens), let's say just a little less classic, mix it up with some summer color. These styles from Mata Traders are all sourced fair trade from women working in cooperatives in Nepal. This partnership enables them to support not just themselves, but their families as well. Visit the product pages to see how the garments are actually made, using hand processes including hand screen printing.

The temperature is rising - keep cool in eco-friendly summer dress styles. From afternoons in the park, to sipping wine at a sidewalk cafe, these summer dresses will keep you looking and feeling cool all day, into the night.
