Aside from escaping to a beach whenever possible, wearing cotton dresses is how we survive the blistering summer heat. Nothing is as uncomfortable as sweating through a thick shirt, whether it be tweed or suede, in the depths of June, July, and August. There’s a season for every fabric, and this is definitely the summer of cotton dresses.
We love them because they are lightweight and airy. Plus, if you’re headed on a vacation or work trip, the fabric is easy to fold and pack up. If you don’t want to break the bank on a new dress, we curated a selection of our favorite cotton designs under $100. These reliable pieces will become your summer uniform, no doubt.
