We don’t know about you, but we’re still very much into shopping for the prettiest summer clothes. And while we love to ogle at all the fancy $300 beach dresses, they just aren’t always practical—especially when we’ll be schvitzing in them the second we step out the door. Enter: These ten reasonably priced numbers, all available at (you guessed it) Amazon. Ringing in under $37 apiece, we can’t help ourselves from adding multiple to our cart. And you know what? They’ll still be less expensive than one overpriced maxi. Who said shopping sprees always lead to buyer’s remorse?

I’m 5’1” and This $27 Amazon Maxi Dress Is the Only Thing I’m Wearing This Summer


1. Yesno Women’s Bohemian Floral Print Maxi

PureWow’s own SVP of content, Jillian Quint, bought this maxi at the beginning of summer and has been racking up compliments on it ever since. She explains, “The length couldn’t be more flattering for my petite frame: It hits right at my ankles, meaning there’s no fabric trailing behind me and I can actually show off my summer sandals.”


2. Ecowish Women's Printed Wrap Dress

Wrap dresses are flattering on nearly every body type—big boobs, small boobs, curvy, straight, you name it. This $30 boho dress is no exception to that rule. It comes in 24 different colors and prints, so you might just want to treat yourself a few from the get-go.


3. Yobecho Women’s Ruffle Sleeve Mini Dress

The fluttery cap sleeves create the illusion of toned arms, while the smocked panel just under the bust makes it super stretchy and comfy—no matter how many s’mores you have after dinner.


4. R.vivimos Women's Long Sleeve Floral Print Midi Dresses

Last year, this dress took over the internet, and it still hasn’t lost steam. It comes in 15 colors, with a delightfully bohemian print for every personality. Still not convinced by the hype? The 1,500 positive reviews should seal the deal.


5. Vergoodr Women's Backless Long Bohemian Dress

Wearing a dress in the summer shouldn’t turn you into a sweaty mess. This maxi offers maximum breathability thanks to gauzy, lightweight fabric and a backless design (with three straps to hold it in place).


6. Milumia Plus Size Short Sleeve Wrap Dress

Look what we have here, another flattering wrap dress. This one features an asymmetrical ruffle hem for all the flowy vibes as you strut down the boardwalk (or around the back deck).


7. Vergoodr Women's Patchwork Beach Dresses

If we didn’t know any better, we’d assume this was a $100 Free People dress. The flowy, backless cut strikes that perfect balance of carefree and (a little bit) sexy for the most humid days of summer.


8. R.vivimos Women’s Floral Print Puff-sleeve Midi Dress

This puff-sleeve number gives us major Belle from Beauty and the Beast vibes, and we are so here for it. We’ll be wearing this one in the South of France…as soon as we can travel again.


9. Zaful Women's Spaghetti Strap Mini Dress

More of a mini dress gal? This minimalist design hits around mid-thigh and skims the body, to really highlight your curves. But that doesn’t mean it’s uncomfortable. It features a smocked back for extra give around the bust.


10. Happy Sailed Women’s Ruffle Layer Swing Mini Dresses

This flowy, ruffled frock was plucked right out of our sartorial dreams. It’s light and beachy but can be easily dressed up for your best friend’s socially distanced backyard nuptials later this summer. The worst part about it? Settling on just one of the 10 gorgeous color options (and picking between long-sleeves or spaghetti straps).

Um, H&M Has the Cutest Summer Dresses and They’re All Under $30
