Sundresses come in all shapes and styles, from printed A-line silhouettes to solid maxi dresses. The airy, feminine cut of the sundress creates a prime style opportunity, even in the hottest summer weather. For printed looks, try adding subtle metallic details with jewelry and purses. For solid color dresses, introduce new textures with your choice of shoes and accessories. Statement necklaces or earrings help balance high rounded necklines, while bold earrings help highlight bare shoulders and thin straps. Here’s a look at some outfit ideas with casual summer dresses that are sure to turn heads.

Adding a natural twist, the platform sandals keep this outfit dressy-casual, and therefore appropriate for a number of occasions.
