Long Casual Summer Dresses to Throw On and Go

We’ve been spending more time in Austin, Texas over the past few months as my sister and brother in law prep to welcome their twin girls. There’s a certain energy to the city that lends itself to relaxed style you can quickly throw on and go in. On our most recent visit, my sister put me on to a few long casual summer dresses she keeps on repeat to stay cool, including an older H&M maxi dress (available in green, but I ordered the white on Poshmark so fast!).

We were talking about how affordable retailers will occasionally knock it out of the park with a dress or two that are perfect everyday pieces: casual enough for working from home, errands, travel, and the like but polished enough to dress up.

Inspired by my Poshmark find, I did some digging and found what I think are this year’s winners (in versatile neutrals, of course). If you’re in the market for a long summer dress, don’t miss the finds below from affordable labels like Zara and H&M, plus a few splurge-worthy picks from contemporary brands I love!
