breathable linen designs, and timeless white styles are some of the few categories that make up the best sundresses for women. While you likely reach for polished midis for work, billowing maxis on holiday, sundresses—with their breezy, effortless, and oft subtly skin-baring qualities—are quintessentially summer. So, you’d be wise to stock up on a range of styles, and this year, six key trends are dominating.

If timelessness and versatility are your M.O., white dresses and minimalist cuts will never fail; open backs, tiered skirts, and sweet accents will unquestionably freshen up your assortment this season. Whimsical prints and bright colors are two other must-try trends; when the mood is cheerful, a plucky shade of pink or mermaid motif is perfectly playful in the heat. Summer’s romantic trend is thoroughly dreamy if you’re craving a feminine aesthetic—think bustier-inspired detailing, puffy sleeves, and frilled accents like delicate bow ties and Broderie Anglaise. For warm-weather drama, voluminous silhouettes on tiered skirts should be part of the equation and for extra impact, seek out frilled sleeves or a sunny hue.
