Summer Dresses

How do you keep cool as summer temps rise? With effortless summer sundresses from Macy’s, of course!

Perhaps you’re headed to the pool. Or maybe you’re a guest of honor at a summer wedding. Whatever you’re looking for, from summer maxi dresses worthy of a special event to beach dresses that double as swimwear cover-ups, Macy’s summer dresses fulfill the need.

If you want some ideas, read on, then shop our selection of formal and casual summer dresses.

Casual, Cool and Collected
You’ve already stocked up on sunscreen, hats and flip flops, and you’ve got your towels and summer reading material in the bag. But what will you throw on over your swimsuit?

We suggest starting with casual summer dresses that can be worn as both cover-ups and stand-alone styles. That way, you can pair them with sandals, sneakers and other women’s shoes when you’re not headed to the beach or the pool.

To get the most wear out of these two-in-one summer dresses, search for sundresses that are fully opaque (i.e.: no skin showing through). Or you could pick out a beach dress that can be layered over a slip if you prefer sheer styles.

Designed for Maximum Impact
Okay, now that we’ve covered casual summer dresses for women, we’re ready to graduate on to evening and special occasion styles for warm-weather events.

For date nights, birthdays, anniversaries, 4th of July and Labor Day parties, the obvious choice would be a maxi dress. The ankle-length hem makes a dramatic statement whether you choose a form-fitting maxi dress or one that’s loose and free-flowing.

For guests of summer weddings, put a full spectrum of color and pattern on display. Dresses in saturated hues and romantic prints are especially nice for warm-weather occasions. Just be sure to check the event’s dress code (it should be on the invitation or on the wedding website) before you shop.
