Long Beach To Bar Dresses That Deserve A Top Spot In Your Suitcase

When it comes to the ultimate beach to bar dresses, you can never go wrong with maxi silhouettes. Firstly, they look undeniably elegant from the moment you slip them on. Secondly, they’ll keep you looking and feeling cool from morning until night – especially important in the summer sunshine! With that in mind, we’re turning our attention to dresses like the Extratropical maxi dress by Free-Est. This perfect pink silhouette ticks all the boxes both in terms of style and comfort. The floaty A-line style is simple yet beautiful demanding attention with its vibrant shade of pink. Meanwhile, the open back with triple strap detailing and tiered, ruffle-trimmed skirt are a match made in heaven. Wear this dress with bare feet on the sand, then, simply add your go-to flat sandals for dinner and drinks at sunset.


Additionally, since you can never go wrong with a classic white dress on vacation, the Juliet midi dress by Tove is a must-have. Firstly, with its chic strapless neckline, fitted bodice, and flared A-line skirt, this dress is undeniably flattering. Secondly, we love how incredibly versatile it is! Not only will this organic cotton dress work perfectly thrown over swimwear for laid-back summer days, you can also dress it up with flats for exploring or even a pair of heeled sandals for dinner! And, for those who won’t buy a dress without them, the Juliet dress features functional pockets!
