Everyone knows that Amazon can be super hit or miss, but you can’t beat their prices and shipping time. If you’re in a crunch, Amazon is the perfect place to order from.

This is why I wanted to make sure I gave you the best summer dresses on Amazon that are super cute but also have great reviews. 

We all know a little black dress is a total closet staple, and this dress is the perfect twist on that for summer. The loose fit is so comfortable for hotter summer days, and the sleeves are so flattering.

These are the insanely cute summer fashion trends and outfits you need to know about to look and feel super stylish this summer.

Casual Summer Dresses

Casual summer dresses are perfect to throw on and go. They are great for a hot day too because they aren’t as hot as denim can tend to be. 

Another reason to love every day casual dresses is because they simplify the process of picking out an outfit. Grab a dress and some sneakers or sandals, and you’re good to go.

Since this dress goes up to size 2x, it is also a great plus size summer dress option. 

When you look at this dress, you’re probably instantly obsessed. What you don’t realize, is that it actually is a romper underneath. 😍This is the perfect way to wear a shorter dress without the fears that come with wearing a shorter dress.

A babydoll dress is an absolute staple and necessary for the summer. This dress comes in several colors and is under $40.

No matter what the occasion is this dress is perfect. A great thing about a babydoll dress is that it can be dressed up or down so it truly is a staple. 

For a more casual look, pair it with sneakers or flat sandals and every day jewelry. For a more dressed up look, throw on some heels and a gold necklace. 

I am obsessed with this gorgeous off white dress. It has such a beautiful cut and I just love everything about it.

flowy white dress is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. I’ve mentioned a few times about other dresses that they wouldn’t be too hot for the summer and the same goes for this one.

I can totally picture this dress for photos in the summer as well. 

Here is a great longer dress option that is super casual and would be perfect for running errands. 

This is the perfect dress if you’re on the go because you don’t have to worry about it being too short or revealing.

This can so easily be paired with some sneakers and it comes in a couple of other colors as well. 

This dress with a subtle floral pattern is adorable and so feminine. I love the simplicity of this dress because that makes it so versatile.
