Amazon is our first stop when it comes to stocking our closets with fun and affordable clothing. Our carts are full of leggings, a Skims bodysuit dupe and other fashion finds. With warm weather here (and not going anywhere anytime soon), we’ve got our eye on Amazon summer dresses, too.
Amazon’s wide range of dress styles and sizes all come with an affordable price tag and hundreds (if not thousands) of rave reviews to back them up. Plus, you can’t beat Amazon’s easy return policy and quick shipping, especially if you’re a Prime member.
One-Shoulder Dress with Bow
The best Amazon summer dresses are the ones you can effortlessly throw on and pair with almost any shoe in your closet. As if this cute Zesica one-shoulder dress couldn’t get better, it has a charming bow on the shoulder to add some elegance. Plus, this red color is called watermelon, which basically screams summertime.
“I absolutely love the dress,” writes Courtnie Newcomb, a verified buyer. “It’s a gorgeous color, the fabric is high quality, it fit true to size and was extremely comfortable to wear. It was the perfect day-to-night look that can be worn in so many different ways. The dress is a must-have spring and summer dress.” Pair it with one of these summer accessories from Amazon.
Lacy Smocked Midi Dress
Think of all the occasions you can wear this puff-sleeved summer dress. How about at a wedding, baby shower or date night? The textured chiffon fabric and smocked bodice create a romantic look while the midi length and arm coverage ensure it’s an appropriate match for fancier events.
“I loved this little number,” writes five-star reviewer, Sheila E. “It has a comfortable, relaxed fit, but is still flattering and can be easily dressed up or dressed down to suit a variety of occasions. I paired it with gold sling heels and gold jewelry, and received a bevy of compliments on the dress.”

Ooh là là! Between the open sliver of midriff and the mid-thigh slit, this Pink Queen ribbed frock is the flirty, flattering dress that’s been missing from your wardrobe. It’s available in 36 color options, including unexpected combinations (like orange and pink and blue and green). Amazon summer dresses like this one are on-trend and made to pack for a summer vacation. Keep in mind that it hugs every curve, so you might feel most confident pairing this dress with shapewear underneath.
“Honestly, I am beyond impressed with this dress!” says reviewer, Austyn. “As a mom of two who is not lacking in the hips, booty and lower belly area, this is so flattering.”
Swiss Dot Tiered Maxi Dress
Thinking about how to swap your go-to Bermuda shorts for something dressier? We suggest this ruffle summer dress, which is equally pretty and practical for warm weather. The ruffle sleeves lend a feminine touch while the Swiss dots add texture. Good luck narrowing down which of the 23 colors and patterns you like best. (We love them all!)
Above-Knee Surplice Dress
You can reach for this goes-with-everything Amazon Essentials dress all season. It’s ultra comfortable (thank you, elastane) with a flattering V-neck and swingy cut that hits just above the knee—perfect for summer’s sultriest days.

It’s always flattering no matter how I’m feeling that day. You will not regret this purchase.”
Sleeveless Boho Maxi Dress
This sweet-as-can-be floral maxi dress is the answer to the, “What should I wear?” question for any dressy occasion this summer. Reviewers rave that it can accommodate busts of all sizes (with the right type of bra), and we appreciate the flexible smocked waistline and bra-friendly straps, too. The toughest decision won’t be whether or not to add it to your Amazon cart (obviously, yes), but which of the 40 colors and patterns you love the most.
“I am 100% in love,” says five-star reviewer, Steph. “It’s beautiful, flowy, flattering and just the right thickness to keep you cool but not show everything.”
Off-the-Shoulder Half-Sleeve Dress
You’ll feel so ladylike wearing this R. Vivimos midi dress. An empire waist gives the illusion of height while the square neckline and shirred bodice are flattering on every body type. It’s partially lined, ensuring no peekaboo underwear moments, and a lightweight cotton-blend fabric adds breathability in hot and humid climates. Another plus: the gently puffed sleeves that can be worn on or off the shoulder, offering two different looks in one dress.
Striped T-Shirt Dress
Never again stare into your closet grumbling about what to wear. The answer, whether you’re running errands or getting brunch with friends, can be this knee-length T-shirt dress, which comes in a slew of striped color combinations. The belt can be tied in the front or back, highlighting your curves and keeping you comfortable. Did we mention it has pockets?

Square-Neck Maxi Dress
This ruffle maxi dress is all about feeling confident while looking effortless.

Bonus for new moms and moms-to-be: This dress is maternity0 and postpartum-friendly, too. It’s currently available in 30 colors, each one a versatile addition to your wardrobe.
“This dress is absolutely perfect. The color, the size, the sheerness is all perfect,” raves five-star reviewer, Kim H. “The bodice is stretchy and comfortable, and the fabric overall is nice and not see-through. Love love love!”
Sleeveless Maxi Dress
Name a summer activity—any summer activity!—and here’s betting this casual maxi sundress will pair perfectly with it. A backyard grill out? Definitely. A beach day? Absolutely. Thanks to a flowy cut, it’s incredibly versatile, so dress it up with heels and jewelry or down with sandals and a sun hat. You may like it so much that you add a couple of the 23 color options, which include solids, stripes and florals, to your cart. (Psst! Because of the thin, halter-like straps, you’ll probably want to wear a strapless bra or a spring jacket with this dress.)
Five-star reviewer, Cindy Scanlon, is a fan. “Super-cute summer dress and very comfortable” she says. “I get lots of compliments on the pattern and color. You will definitely love this dress.”
Crewneck Swing Dress
When comfort and coverage are key, reach for this throw-on-and-go tiered summer dress. It’s as cozy as your favorite T-shirt, but adds extra effort into your look.

Strapless Maxi Dress with Lace Trim
If you love strapless dresses, give this lace-trim maxi dress a try. The shirred bodice stays perfectly in place while a scalloped eyelet detail and tiered skirt cement its position as a summer must-have. Wear this dress with an eye-catching necklace and strappy sandals for a pool party or a tropical vacation. (Just think: no awkward, accidental tan lines!)
Wrap V-Neck Sundress
Oh, the wonders of a wrap dress! The classic silhouette of this V-neck midi sundress is flattering on all shapes and sizes, making this style a wardrobe essential.

Floral One Shoulder Smocked Maxi Dress
There’s nothing shy about this bold, one-shouldered midi dress, and that’s what we love about it.
