Women’s Summer Beach Dresses

When the sun shines, check out the wide range of women’s summer beach dresses here on eBay to keep stylish in the heat. The casual fit and style is perfect for picnics in the park to strolls along the beach in the warmer weather.

Fabrics and Materials

Natural materials are always best in the heat as they offer more ventilation than synthetic fibres. Cotton and linen are lightweight and comfortable in the warm weather, stopping fabrics from clinging to your body.

One synthetic fabric which is great for the summer is rayon. It is made from a blend of cotton, natural and synthetic materials and was originally made as a cheaper alternative to silk. The thin fibres make is lightweight and breathable, making it the perfect fabric for the summer.


The perfect style of dress for summer is floaty and lightweight with straps or a sleeveless fit to allow your arms to breathe. Try a strapless or racerback dress for a different look.

To go for a full summer style, choose bright colours and bold prints to embrace the warm weather. If you can’t go colourful in the summer then when can you? Brighter colours also absorb less heat from the sunlight so your clothes won’t overheat as much.

If you’re going on a sunny holiday where you will be chilling out on the beach or relaxing around the poolside, choose an ultralight fabric or a kimono that is easy for throwing on over your swimwear.

Wear With

In the height of summer, the best thing to wear with dresses is a simple pair of sandals or flip flops. For a smarter look, team yours with some cutaway shoes.

When it comes to accessories, keep it simple as you don’t want to get hot and sticky wearing jewellery. Carry a canvas bag with all of your essentials in and don’t forget to put on a pair of sunglasses.
