    For the past week, I’ve been in Hawaii (Oahu), celebrating my son’s college graduation, and enjoying a little rest and relaxation.  When planning for the trip, I knew I wanted to be cool, comfortable, and of course stylish, so for me, cute summer dresses were in order.  I’ve recently become a big fan of maxi dresses, and although it’s not officially summer yet, in today’s post, I’m sharing this check print tie-front maxi dress that I love, along with 5 dress styles you’ll love for summer vacation and beyond.

    It seems that the current trend for summer dresses is all about prints and details.  From checks and ruffled hemlines, to florals and front and shoulder ties, summer dress trends seem to be full of features that make them stand out.  While shopping for summer dresses for my trip, I noticed a few dress styles that are definitely perfect for the coming summer season, and in today’s “Style Guide,” I’m sharing five dress styles you’ll love for summer vacation and beyond.

    Style Guide:  5 Dress Styles You’ll Love For Summer Vacation & Beyond

    A Maxi Dress – The maxi dress is definitely a summer dress staple, because it’s super chic, and can be styled in a variety of ways.  You can simply wear it as a dress, or style it open over shorts or ankle pants, and even style it as a swim cover up.  I love these other maxi dresses here and here.

    A Midi Dress – The midi dress is always a classic dress style that can take you from lounging by the pool or at the beach to dinner.  I love these midi dresses here and here.

    A Floral Dress – Floral dresses are definitely going to be a carryover from Spring dress styles, and they are perfect for vacationing in tropical places and beyond.  I love these floral dresses here, here, and here.

    A Linen Dress – Linen dresses are always cool and stylish, and gives you that effortless chic look for vacation or simply all summer long.  I love these linen dresses here and here.

    An Off The Shoulder Dress – An off the shoulder dress screams summer, and is certainly the perfect dress for vacation in warm climates.  I love these off the shoulder dresses here and here (Lilac).

    So, if you’re looking for summer dresses for vacation and beyond, I hope this post was helpful.  For today’s look, I’m wearing my Check Print Maxi Dress, also in petite here, (Limited Sizes Left, Now 25% Off); Also, love these similar styles here, here, here, here, and here, and I accessorized with my Bow Top Espadrille Mules (Sold Out); Similar here, here, and here; Also love these here and here.
