Summer is approaching, which means some well-deserved leisure time. One of the best parts about summer is the parties. It seems as if there is always a party going on be it a graduation party, birthday party or even a simple backyard get together. That being said, summer dresses are coming out in full force to handle the heat in the most fashionable way possible. But there are so many to choose from. Where does one begin?
Not to worry, here is a list of the best summer dresses that will have all eyes on you during your summer gatherings.
Aries (3/21 – 4/19)
As the first sign in the zodiac order and a fire sign, it is in your nature to be a daredevil and take risks in whatever you do. You are a natural born leader, therefore your ideal dress should push the boundaries of symmetry as well as show off your more fun and playful side.
Taurus (4/20 – 5/20)
You’re simple but with a taste for the luxurious. As an earth sign, you value practicality and reliability as those are two characteristics often associated with your sign. The perfect summer dress for you would be something that expresses your practically luxurious personality. Turn heads with a white, off-shoulder maxi dress.
Gemini (5/21 – 6/20)
Quick-witted and animated. Gemini’s love attention, even if they are not the center of it, therefore the perfect dress for you would be a conversation piece. Just below the knee or longer with an eye-catching pattern. In fact, a maxi dress with a halter neckline perfectly captures Gemini’s fun personality
Cancer (6/21 – 7/22)
Known as the mothers of the zodiac, you have a reputation for being sweet, intuitive and romantic. You also tend to be more so on the conservative side in terms of personality and dress. For your sign, your ideal dress would most likely take a romanticized approach with an element of “girl next door” vibes. As a Cancer, you could never go wrong with a midi tank dress. To play up the romantic factor, lace is your material of choice.
Leo (7/23 – 8/22)
A fixed fire sign. You are bold and love to be the star of the show. Like your fellow fire sign of Aries, you are not afraid to take risks and be the leader- therefore you are one to set the trend with the way you dress. You desire to stand out from the rest, especially at parties. Therefore, your ideal dress really isn’t a dress. A brightly colored jumpsuit paired with equally as bold accessories is the way to go for your summer party look. This look is interchangeable for day parties as well as for night time affairs.
Virgo (8/23 – 9/22)
As a Virgo, you are practical, methodical and known to be a perfectionist. But you have an ethereal quality about you that catches the attention of many because of how mysterious you tend to come off to the general public. Like the Taurus, you too have a taste for the luxurious as well as being artistically inclined in some manner. You like things that are straight to the point with an artistic flair. The ideal summer party dress for you would encompass the qualities of elegance, practicality, and attention-commanding all in one. A butterfly sleeved maxi dress will play up your ethereal appeal as it will appear as though you are gliding around the party.
Libra (9/23 – 10/22)
Balance. That is the single word that describes your sign, Libra. You value beauty and harmony in your day to day life and relationships as well as in the way you dress. Similar to Cancer, the ideal party dress for you this summer is something that is not entirely trendy for the season, rather something classic that will remain a hit for summers to come. A simple maxi dress with a coral or warm-neutral color strikes a balance between classic and bold. The maxi shape is classic in the way it elongates the person that wears it while coral retains a classic elegance.
Scorpio (10/23 – 11/21)
Like the Virgo, Scorpio has a mysterious and irresistible quality to them that automatically draws attention when they enter a space. In comparison to your fellow water signs of Cancer and Pisces, you are definitely the most daring. Scorpio’s have a reputation for being quite sexy but also find a way to make it elegant. The summer is the perfect time to play up your magnetic appeal. Your ideal dress will take a chance on style moreso than color. While most people will opt for sleeveless numbers over the summer, take a chance and play with your sleeves. Try a (breatheable) long sleeve. To play up your daringness and magnetic sex appeal, your ideal dress should be above the knee with a unique neckline.
Sagittarius (11/22 – 12/21)
Like your fellow fire signs, you are bold and always down for a good time. However, as a Sag you are the good time. You typically enjoy explorations of the mind as well as the world. You are the most carefree out of the fire signs, therefore, your ideal summer party dress should be unique enough to capture attention and be a conversation piece without impeding your ability to fully enjoy your surroundings. Like the Leo, your ideal summer party outfit wouldn’t be comprised of a dress at all but it would not be a jumpsuit either. For you, Sagittarius, the ideal summer party dress (not really) would be a high-low romper. From the back, one would think that you were actually wearing a dress until you turn around, that is. This style will make for a great conversation piece at a party or in general.
Capricorn (12/22 – 1/19)

Like other earth signs, Capricorns value structure and straightforwardness. You are the definition of pragmatic, Capricorn. Therefore comfort is your number one priority when it comes to dressing along with style. The ideal summer dress for you, Cap, steers away from body conforming. Similar to your fellow earth sign of Virgo, bohemian inspired dresses are more your speed. Ideally, your boho dress would be shorter than a maxi for practicality reasons. While the more conservative earth sign, you are not afraid of color, therefore cool yet summery colors would fit you best.
Aquarius (1/20 – 2/18)
The water bearer that marches to their own beat. You tend to be quite the extrovert like the Leo, except you don’t necessarily command attention as people are naturally drawn to your outwardly quirky ways. You are fun and very interesting, therefore your ideal dress should have one quirk about it that makes others tilt their head in a way to say “I never thought such elements could work so well together”. Ideally, the dress would be short enough to refrain from getting in the way of your mingling with a print to set you apart. Most people opt for bright colors and floral prints during the summer, take a walk on the wild side Aquarius and rock an animal print.
Pisces (2/19 – 3/20)
A true Pisces trait is adaptability. Any situation that you are put in, you are able to find a way to adapt due to your mutable quality. Sensitive, easy going and a special kind of quirkiness like your neighbor, Aquarius, the ideal dress is both comfortable as well as dreamy like your perpetual state of being. Catch eyes in a slip dress. The satin material used will elegantly drape over you without having to add much embellishment. The simplicity yet elegance of this dress will allow you to dress it up for more formal summer outings, or dress it down when you want a quirky yet cute look.
