Six Dress Ideas for Summer (See Jane Wear)

A lot of my outfits don’t make it to the blog--I just snap them on my iphone when I remember. Because I tend to err on the side of classic, I thought it’d be helpful to round out some summer dress favorites from past years.  Dresses are my staple when the weather is warm but there are so many ways to wear them–I try not to let myself get stale.  Plus, dresses are more often than not: maternity-friendly.  In half of these outfits, I’m pregnant!  My top tips:

  • Try new silhouettes! I try not to stick to one silhouette and force myself to be adventurous with new shapes.
  • I’m typically a solids gal, but as you can see above, sometimes prints and patterns are just what I need.
  • Try linen–seriously.  Yes, it wrinkles but it is such a great fabric that looks effortless, even when it’s not perfectly pressed in the summertime.

*All these outfits are from last year or the year prior so most items aren’t available – I provided similar items.

  1. I saw your insta story about fewer comments on the new site. It seems easy for me to comment, and I like the new layout!

  2. Great post! Love that Equipment dress and the whole look of that outfit.

    p.s. The site looks great—I’m just not typically a site commenter. 🙂

  3. Anna – just one suggestion if possible, would love if links to items could open into a new window instead of having to click back to where I was at on your site. Thanks!
