These Pastel Color Designer Dresses Deserve All Of Your Attention For Summer

It finally feels like summer is just around the corner and these pastel color designer dresses are all you’ll want to wear. From pretty pink midi looks perfect for brunch dates and summer soirees to beautiful blue mini silhouettes you’ll live in on off-duty days.   I’ve browsed thousands of designer dresses to find the best pastel designs this season has to offer. And, whether you’re jetting off to sunnier climes or just updating your closet for the sunny weather ahead, your new favorites are just a scroll away…

Designer Pastel Color Dresses With Pretty Ruffle Detailing

How could pastel color designer dresses be even prettier? With a little ruffle detailing! Luckily, dresses like the floral ruffle chiffon high-low dress by CeCe exist. Firstly it boasts the most beautiful, and unique double ruffle straps. Secondly, the allover pastel floral detailing brings this eternally flattering dress to life. Additionally, I’m swooning over the gathered sweetheart neckline and a chic high-low hem with a flounced edge. Style this dress with pastel-colored accessories for daylight soirees this summer. I highly recommend the Arianna peep toe heels by Dôen and the Jackie Notte mini crinkled patent-leather shoulder bag by Gucci.

Meanwhile, when only a mini dress will do, opt for the Avignon ruffled corset mini dress by V. Chapman. Made to flatter your figure with a corset-style top and a tiered ruffle mini skirt, this dress wows from angles. Not to mention, the soft lilac hue and subtle floral print couldn’t be a more perfect fit for summertime. Add silver shoes and accessories to compliment the soft purple shade. The Lynn embellished PVC mules by Cult Gaia and micro bow-embellished metallic leather tote by Self Portrait will look amazing with this dress.

Pastel Color Designer Dresses To Style Up Or Down

I love everything about these pastel-colored designer dresses with midi-length hems. Especially the fact you can wear them no matter the dress code. For example, the Venus dress by Dôen. Firstly, it’s the quintessential vacation dress for walks along the beach and low-key dinner plans. Secondly, it’ll work just as well with flats for weekend plans closer to home this spring and summer. If you do feel like dressing it up with heels for evening plans, I’d go with the Ibor leather sling-back sandals by Neous. Finally, finish off this dreamy look with the Gaby zipped pouch by Saint Laurent.

Lastly, I can’t wait to embrace the soft yellow dress trend this summer and the Adoni sleeveless mesh midi by Bardot is perfect for it. Pair yours with flats for casual weekend plans or with modest heels for dressier RSVPs. Pro tip: add The Attico’s Ester leather sandals and Valentino’s embellished raffia shoulder bag to your cart before they both inevitably sell out.
