Dresses are a staple in my closet, especially during the summer. They’re easy to throw on and feel comfortable but still be put together. These are six styles of mom friendly summer dresses you can try.
Being a mom doesn’t have to mean wearing grubbies all day. This summer, ditch the sweats or pajamas and try a dress! Dresses are so quick and easy, it’s literally one item you toss on and it will keep you comfy and cool all day.
Pair your dress with a pair of sneakers or sandals to keep your outfit casual and perfect for running errands, or running after kids.
Mom friendly summer dresses
Below I’m sharing 6 different styles of dresses to elevate your momiform look.
T-shirt dresses are a favorite of mine for easy everyday dresses. The Merrick White Collection dresses are THE BEST, with buttery soft fabric, machine washable, long enough to chase kiddos without flashing anyone, and a really flattering shape in contrast to the standard boxy and shapeless t-shirt dress that accentuates every lump and bump.
Shirt dresses are a great option, especially for new mamas that need breastfeeding access. Some shirt dresses are more dressy or feel more workwear appropriate, but a casual one like the one I’m wearing above is a great option that’s casual, comfortable, and mom friendly.
HENLEY NECKLINE DRESSES
If you don’t own a henley neckline dress, you need to remedy that right now! It’s a great option for a breastfeeding friendly dress, but also adds a little fun detail to an otherwise simple dress. This one from Merrick White Collection is so cute and has the most buttery soft fabric.
CHAMBRAY or DENIM DRESS
A denim or chambray dress is a great mom friendly dress. It’s easy to dress up or down, and comfy while still looking put together and purposeful. This one with the embroidery is so darling.
Maxi dresses are a great option for days when you’re hanging around and just want to feel like you’re wearing a blanket. This one is super soft and stretchy and lightweight. This boxy shape doesn’t accentuate the waist and can be unflattering if you carry weight in your middle or hips, so if I’m wearing it out I’ll often tie a shirt around my waist for a little extra shape and coverage.
SMOCKED TIERED DRESSES
These dresses are extremely popular right now, and they’re a great option if you’re looking for a nice-casual dress for family pictures, or mom friendly dress you can dress up or down.
I hope that helps you find a dress that works for your life!
