Simple Vacation Dresses To Wear From The Beach To The Bar

When it comes to selecting simple vacation dresses we always opt for versatility. We’re choosing silhouettes that work just as well for beach strolls as they do for dinners and drinks! For example, the beautiful Barcelona dress by L*Space. This classic white shirt dress is the ultimate vacation look. Firstly, we all love a throw-on-and-go dress that looks as instantly put together as this one does. Secondly, it’s the ideal dress to throw over your swimwear. Perfect for days that include a dip in the ocean alongside other activities. Finally, this dress will look amazing with your go-to flat sandals. Just be sure to leave the bottom half of the skirt unbuttoned to create that eternally elegant split in the skirt. 

Meanwhile, if you’re planning on a more colorful lineup for your getaway, we totally get it. It’s the very reason we included the Blair belted organic cotton maxi dress by Mara Hoffman! This gorgeous coral red dress is so beautifully vibrant, not to mention perfect for slipping over your swimwear. Additionally, it’ll go just as well with flat sandals as it will with heeled ones. Therefore, you can dress it up or down as needed. Finally, we highly recommend making the most of the waist-cinching belt and plunge V-neckline. Accessorize this dress with gold jewelry to elevate its stunning summer colorway.
