12 Modest Summer Dresses For Every Date in Your Planner

Hello, summer! Everyone’s favorite season hasn’t arrived just yet, but those warm, sunny days are on the horizon. Cue a warm-weather wardrobe refresh. In the coming months, we plan to be living in a line-up of the prettiest modest dresses – taking us from church to work to parties to casual weekends, all spent outside.

So, let’s start planning your new-season closet. Keep scrolling for your round-up of modest summer dresses for all occasions. Oh, and a quick PSA: you’re going to want them all. 

1. Your ‘Throw On and Go’ Dress

Shop the look:
Dusty Peach Tiered Knit Midi Dress, Pink Floral Tiered Midi Dress


Everyone needs that dress they can just toss on and feel instantly put-together. It’s the casual piece that makes getting ready easy, breezy and fun each day. And these are the dresses we’re talking about; they’re lightweight, loose, but make you look dressed-up. Keep one of these in your closet, and you’ll always have a failsafe, all-events outfit at the ready.

2. Your ‘Picnic in the Park’ Dress

Shop the look: Dusty Pink V-Neck Ruffled Hem Midi Dress, Ash Gray Linen Ruffle Midi Dress

There’s nothing like leaning into a theme. If we’re heading to a picnic in the park, we want a look that’s sweet, chic and summer-ready, with a fun, outdoorsy feel. That’s why boho and prairie-style dresses are our go-to for al fresco dining. Try these pretty silhouettes, then add a wide-brimmed sun hat, pack up your lunch, and head to the nearest park. Bon appetit. 

3. Your ‘Best Dressed Guest’ Dress

Shop the look: Peach Floral Embroidered Midi Dress, Off White Floral Mock Neck Midi Dress

Who doesn’t want to be the best dressed guest at a party or wedding? The key, we can reveal, is floral print. Wear it with a floaty fabric, and you’ve got stylish dressing-up down to an easy T. Opt for a midi shape that teams flawlessly with heeled sandals and a stylish clutch bag. We’ll be wearing the pink to watch couples say ‘I do’, and the white for every party in our calendar. 

4. Your ‘Still a Little Chilly’ Dress

Shop the look:
Denim Cinch Waist Midi Dress, Tenley Teal Long Sleeve Midi Dress

Summer doesn’t always mean hot. Chilly mornings and evenings can still occur, which is why it’s good to keep a long-sleeved modest dress in your closet. That’s where these warmer numbers come in. Made with thicker materials, they keep you cozy while offering a true blue summer vibe. Team with sandals or sneakers for movie nights or an evening in your friend’s backyard. 

5. Your ‘Running 1,000 Errands’ Dress

Shop the look: Olivia Leopard Print Midi Dress, Brit Red Striped Midi Dress

This is a more casual take on the ‘throw on and go’ dress. Wear it when your errands list is as long as your arm, and the comfy fabric (combined with a loose silhouette) will keep you feeling cool and confident. This style is also good as a beach cover-up, proving it can work for two very different days: the one where you’re rushed off your feet, and the one where you’re lounging by the beach. Versatile, right? 

6. Your ‘Heading to Church’ Dress

Shop the look: Coral Floral Tie Neck Midi Dress, Clara Cornflower Flowy Midi Dress 

Any one of these dreamy dresses can be worn to church, but here’s some extra stylespiration – because you can never have too many outfits for church. If your community is casual, go for a boho silhouette with an understated pattern; the kind you can dress up or dress down, depending on your choice of accessories. A blue color block dress in a flowy fabric takes your church ensemble to pretty, new heights. Pair with taupe or white sandals for head-to-toe elegance that’s always timeless.
