Spring & Summer Dresses for Under $100

Hi, good morning! How was the weekend? We dipped back into the low 50s, and even saw a few snow flurries. Ew. So, I’m just over here dreaming of summer (even spring would do!) and all the dresses that come along with the change in season.

Affordable Spring & Summer Dresses Under $100
one | two | three | four | five

I love, love, LOVE wearing dresses during the warmer months. I mean, it’s essentially an entire built-in outfit – you put one on, and bam – you’re finished.

So, regardless of the number of dresses that I have hanging in my closet at any given time, I always can justify purchasing a new one (or five) since that’s pretty much what I live in through August. Plus, they’re easy to grab-and-go for any last-minute getaways or weekend trips.

I recently found a few spring and summer dresses that could be total workhorses once the weather cooperates, and even better, they all are under $100!

I saw Taylor wearing this dress to her surprise bridal shower, and it also comes in the prettiest coral color – I love that it has sleeves so you don’t necessarily have to worry about an extra layer or a jacket. I’ve been admiring the off-the-shoulder trend on everybody else, so I think this one from Loft is a great option – I might even be able to pull it off since there’s a waist tie for some added shape.

And, this maxi currently is on its way to me! Duh, it’s blush and has stripes – that was a no-brainer. I’m hoping that the front slit isn’t too high, but I always can sew it to a more appropriate length, if necessary. I think this dress will work great for any upcoming special summer occasions, like baby showers and weddings, but I’m sure I’ll be wearing it casually with a pair of sandals and a messy bun most of the time.

Are you a fan of spring and summer dresses? Do you have your eye on any specific styles?

    i love dresses for the same reason, but i don’t get to wear them as much. i do tend to grab a maxi when we are going to run a quick errand or something because it looks so much better than, say.. my pjs. lol. that number 3 maxi dress… SO pretty. need it.

    Love this roundup! The chambray dress will definitely be mine this summer. I ordered the Wayf Midi dress, but I’m just too short to pull it off so back it went haha. The LC dress you got is gorgeous, too!

      Oh rats, I bet that dress looked so pretty on you, though! I kind of want to order it in the coral color, but I definitely need more of a tan first.

    It’s so cold here too- where is spring? 🙁 I love three and five & could definitely use a few more maxi dresses in my closet.

      I just ordered #5, so I’m excited to get it and report back to all of you about it. And, I know – spring needs to get its act together!

    I can’t wait until it’s time for dresses and I’m stunned that time hasn’t come yet! Not quite snow but it got SO cold here yesterday. I love that off the shoulder blue one.

      I know, usually by now I’m wearing dresses pretty much everyday. Guess the weather has other plans for us this year!

    Snow in May? I could not even imagine that! I love dresses for spring and summer – they’re so easy for just about anything! I’m loving that coral maxi.

      Right? Everything would be better if the weather started cooperating. I ordered #5, too, so I’ll report back on it once I get it!

    Dresses are my go to in the summer. I feel so much better in them than I do in shorts. Loving your finds! I have that white one on order.

    I agree with you about the weather we’ve been having lately, so over it!! Cute dresses here today, you are lucky that you can wear dresses well – me, not so much!

  20. 5.16.16

    Such a great round up! Love that off the shoulder one!

  21. 5.16.16

    Love #3 and 5! I was also just at Loft yesterday but did not see that dress. I like wearing dresses during the summer too. It is supposed to get nice again here today and then chilly again tomorrow. But then back to the 70s. I hope that it gets nice again there too!!! I’m so over this rollercoaster weather haha. Hope that you had a nice weekend too. 🙂
