Anthropologie Summer Dresses

Anthropologie is one of those places I always dreamed about shopping at when I was in my early 20’s and starting out blogging. All these bloggers would post their Anthropologie items and I would be so jealous because I couldn’t afford (or justify) spending $250 on a dress that I might wear to one event each summer. And while I still feel that way about a lot of their items, I do find myself investing in a few pieces from there each year — whether it’s a piece of clothing, a home decor item (like the agate coasters in my living room), or even a baby item.

One item that Anthropologie gets right year after year — and one that is worth investing in — is their summer dresses. They’re breezy, colorful, and trendy. The ultimate compliment you can get on your summer dress is, “Oh, I love your dress. Is it from Anthropologie?” Here I’m breaking down all of their latest summer dresses that I love, grouped into themes. Which Anthropologie summer dress is your favorite?

Anthropologie Floral Dresses for Summer

What’s more quintessential for summer than a floral dress? I’ll wait. Anthro carries your typical feminine floral dresses, but also boldly colored and boho-chic options, too. Just keep the rest of your accessories fairly simple as to not take away from the floral print.

Anthropologie Striped Dresses for Summer

These striped dresses are more colorful and loose than their winter/fall counterparts, making them perfect for summer. If you’re tired of the boring stripes, try vertical stripes, colorblocked stripes, or striped with ruffled details (like the sleeves on a few of the dresses above).

Anthropologie Embroidered Dresses for Summer

Some of my favorite summer memories growing up involve me wearing an embroidered dress or top. Odd observation, I know, but it’s a memory that has stuck in my head. I remember the black floral embroidered top that made me feel so confident that I wore it until it started falling apart at the seams. The embroidered dresses above are great for summer picnics, get-togethers, and more.

Anthropologie Bold Patterned Dresses for Summer

Anthropologie is the go-to when you’re looking for something bold and patterned, and these dresses are no exception. I find that large prints like this help elongate my frame (oddly enough), so I often have one or two each summer in my dress rotation.
