19 Stylish Pieces Of Clothing That Simply Scream Summer

Because the best parts of summer are twirly dresses, cheery prints, and brand-new swimsuits, IMHO.

1. A loose pocketed polka-dot maxi dress that's a ~spot-on~ choice for anyone who values comfort and style equally, especially on sweaty days.

Promising review: "Not for me but...an honest review for you?? I hesitate to give 3 stars since I dislike when reviewers give mediocre (or awful) reviews based on things that are either just personal preference or things the seller has no control over but, alas, 3 seems fair.To start: I'm 5'4" & ~115, i got the Small/US 4 in Mint. My first impression upon opening was that there was only a slight smell (if you put your nose right up to it) and that the mint is actually more of a muted sea foam which, personally, isn't a bad thing to me but, other may find it useful.Even still folded I was surprised by the material. I live in FL and it's going to be 96° today so the fact that it's lightweight would usually be a good thing; however, once i opened it, boy, so many thoughts. Ok:1. It's unlined and, think of like a well washed handkerchief, you'll get an idea for its thinness. Depending on what color you get, 'see-throughness' might be an issue.2. It's a loose fit, i get it, but something can be loose and still be flattering. This was...not so much. (Honestly, my first thought before i tried it on was 'muu-muu')3. There are no extenders on the shoulder straps so, depending on your body type, if you want to be a little more bold, or a little more modest, not gonna happen. ON ME THOUGH, the 'coverage' was fine as the straps were short enough. I have NO idea how larger chested women will do in this, though (i am A...sommmmetimes B).4. Oh hey, pockets. Cool. Not deep pockets. Think lip gloss and a credit card not car keys and cell phone.5. It has a zipper back...i'm not really sure why, it's certainly not fitted enough to not be able to just slip off and on. Zipper goes about halfway down and is small, concealed, and seems durable enough.Overall, if you're buying this to wear around the house or just to throw on as a beach cover up, it'd be fine. But if (like me) you're trying to add some cute new dresses to your jean-filled wardrobe, I would definitely pass. I'll be returning this since i really don't have need for anymore pajamas.*i bought this. no discounty weirdness for my review" — liddlest

2. A drapey, spaghetti strap midi dress with adjustable straps and an elastic waist for a perfect fit. Throw it on and go - spending less time fretting about what to wear and more time actually living your best summer life.

Promising review: "Perfect for short girls! Wow! As a short girl (5'0), it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find maxi dresses that I don't step all over, even with heels on! That's why I decided to try this one, because of the unique length and the slits. This length is absolute perfection! Plus, this is SUPER flattering. I'm quite curvy with large hips and an hourglass figure and many dresses are a no go for me and make my hips look enormous. I just returned a couple other dresses because of this. This dress, on the other hand, is very flattering on a short, curvy body, which is hard to do! It's also very light and comfortable, perfect for summer. I can also see it paired with a jacket and boots for fall. Can be dressed up or down. It's very versatile. I'm going to get another color since finding dresses I like is so rare. 5 stars from me. I'm 5'0", 145 lbs, size 10 jeans, usually size s/m tops, 34C and I got a Large, which is what the sizing chart suggested for me. It fits pretty perfectly. I'd say it fits a little smaller than a typical Large, but it's accurate to their sizing chart. I ordered both red and black. I'll probably order another color too because this dress is that good!" — Katizig

3. A classic sunflower print romper that will look great with every cute pair of sneakers and sandals you own.

Promising review: "I love it, but the straps are cheaply made This romper is CUTE!!Quality: I love it, but the straps are cheaply made. I don’t understand why they come undone? And I tried to adjust them but it wasn’t working. So I’m not sure. This also has a zipper.. which also doesn’t make much sense.Sizing: I always size up once w Amazon. I’m a size 12 in jeans and a size L in tops. I bought an XL. It fit a little big in the hips and waist, but was a perfect/ a teeeeeensssie but snug in the chest. I also am a 36DD so that could be why.Overall I definitely would recommend buying this, but don’t think it’s going to last longer than this summer. Which isn’t horrible w the price tag it has. I also would suggest hand washing it since it’s a thin material and has the poms on the bottom. I would recommend buying your size if you have a smaller chest and if you have a larger chest going up one size." — Katie J

Promising review: "Great dress for warm weather, perfect for travel too. I love this dress! Thank goodness I read the reviews about sizing. I am 5' 9.5" and wear a 16-18. I always buy tall XL and prefer XXL. I like my clothes loose. I am including a picture of me in a large wearing boots with 2" heels. I love the fit and flow of this dress. I carry my weight in my hips, so I think I willl probably stitch up the pockets and snip them off. The material is very stretchy, and light weight, but not see through. I love that this material doesn't wrinkle, perfect for packing!" — Gretchen

10. Easy, breezy, and comfy elastic waist wide-leg pants available in so many cute prints, you won't be able to pick just one (and at under $30 a pair, why should you?). You truly can't beat an item that works for an outdoor date, the office, or lounging on the couch.

Promising review: "Gorgeous! OMG, where do I even start? I was looking around for some lightweight, comfy pants that look nice enough to wear in a business setting. As usual, I was hesitant but Amazon's awesome return policy really helped sway my decision and gave it a try. I'm so happy that I did! I've received so many compliments at the office that I've even shared the link of these pants with some of my co-workers. My only wish is that add even more patterns because I really only like the one that I purchased. I'd also consider purchasing solid color options too! For reference, I am 5ft, 4in, 140 lbs and ordered a medium. They are a bit long but length is just right with a small heel" — Vanessa C.

Promising review: "kept my big boobs in place with no bra! Absolutely love this dress! I am not a thin girl, curvy size 38E bra, big boobs, big butt, mom pooch belly, back fat rolls and all. I normally cover my arms and my back fat, but for some reason in this dress I felt so beautiful and comfortable. I received TONS of compliments. Even though one of the straps in the back broke, I still give it 5 stars because I received even more compliments because when that happens it gives you a slight sexy peekaboo side boob action without being too revealing. And it still held my girls up without a bra. It is slightly see through just wore pasties and the right underwear and I was fine. Getting more colors asap!" — izzesparks

Promising review: "The perfect summer set! I am so obsessed with this set! I am 5’3 and around 160, usually wear a size 10, 36D and bought a large which was the perfect fit. I own it in orange (gorgeous shade!) and loved it so much that I ordered the teal - the teal is darker than depicted and is more of an emerald color so I’ll likely be exchanging for a different color. The material doesn’t have much stretch and feels similar to linen; it’s super lightweight and perfect for summer - the side slits on the pants allow for great airflow and make this outfit heat&humidity approved. I wore it in Charleston during a heat wave and didn’t sweat to death, so you can take my word for it." —

Promising review: "Tall Girl-friendly I’m absolutely in love with these shorts! I was super hesitant at first because of the length and the fit in the hips. My waist measures at 35 inches and my hips at 46 inches, and i am 5 fr 8.5 inches (with most of my height being in my legs). Therefore, finding shorts long enough for me to be comfortable in but in the high waisted style I like has been a challenge for me. But these are perfect! I’m definitely going to get great use out of them this summer!" — shadow

Promising review: "So fun and versatile! So versatile!! I purchased this in a size small since it was adjustable. For context, I am 5’9, 140 lbs and usually a SM-med in tops. The shirt is a great stretchy material. My favorite aspect is it can be worn in 3 ways depending on what you’re going for. As pictured is the most “exposed” version- the straps can also be tied in the back, similar to a wrap dress which shows a lot less skin. Lastly, you can flip the shirt around and rock it as a high neck, backless blouse- also very fun!" — Stacey Gebler

Promising review: "Perfect summer dress! Buying in more colors! I bought this hoping that it would work out, but not getting my hopes up because of how many clothes I have to return on Amazon. This dress. Is. Amazing. I love the material - it's stretchy and doesn't feel thin, but at the same time isn't thick and heavy. It would be see through if you wore dark or bright colored panties, but with light colors you're just fine (see in the second photo). That being said, if you pull the dress tight against your body, you can see the color and panty line through the fabric, but as I said, I had to pull it tight to see that. With normal wear, no issue.The medium fit perfectly. The elastic on the back makes the bodice just right (not too tight or revealing for work) and the waist line hits perfectly for me! I'm 5'6, about 145lbs, and rather hippy so waistlines on dresses are normally the deciding point for dresses. I love the length and the depth of the pockets. So, so pleased with this dress and can't wait for more colors!" — Mary
