Summer Style: Beat the Heat in a Swing Dress

Summer Swing Dress

Summer is just beginning and it’s already heating up around here. Swing dresses, also known as trapeze dresses, are my favorite thing to wear on sweltering days when the temps are hitting 90-plus. They’re lightweight, loose and breezy, and all one piece, so there’s no tucking or adjusting anything. And, depending on where you shop, you can usually find cute ones for under $30! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite swing dresses to keep you cool all summer long.

Basic Black Swing Dress

A black swing dress can take you anywhere! With fashion sneakers or sandals, it’s great for errands and can even pass as a beach cover-up. With accessories and heels, you’ve got a showstopping LBD for date night. My black swing dress is a core piece in my vacation capsule wardrobe.

Striped Swing Dresses

Striped swing dresses can be really fun, and they look great with a denim jacket or cardigan in the fall and winter. Recently on a trip to Walmart, I found these adorable Time & Tru striped swing dresses for just $9.96 each! Couldn’t decide which striped color to get (black, gray, olive, or pink/orange), so I got them all!

These cuuuute, comfy Walmart dresses also come in 5 solid colors and 1 other print! I was tempted to go home with more than just 4 of them at under $10 each. You can shop them at, too!
