Affordable Summer Dresses from Walmart

Holy moly, I can’t believe the weekend is already over. Anyone else feel like it just barely got started?! And now it’s over. I hate when that happens. But I’m ready to start a new week and I hope you are too. I’m also pretty dang excited about today’s post because I’m sharing seven affordable summer dresses, all of which are from Walmart. These are great options if you have a vacation coming up, trip to the beach, or just want a cute dress for a fun night out. And the best part is they’re all under $50. Whoot whoot! Ok, I have lots to share, so let’s hop to it.

First up is this cute button up linen dress. I LOVE this dress because it’s lightweight and the fabric is very breathable, which is perfect for summer. It’s also super versatile too–this could work for a night out with a pair of heels or even a casual summer BBQ with a cute pair of sandals. It runs a bit large, so I’d suggest sizing down one. It comes in three color options.

Another more dressy option is this cute white ruffle dress. I love all the details on this one–it has a floral crochet pattern that is adorable and I love the ruffle, which runs down the front and back. It also has a nice lining, which means it’s NOT see-through. Hallelujah!! I’m wearing size small and I feel like it’s true to size. This also comes in black.

OK as much as I LOOOOVE this next maxi dress, I hesitate to share it because this one just sold out over the weekend. Such a bummer! I am so impressed with this dress and I think it may be my favorite maxi dress ever. I know that’s saying a lot, but it’s true. I just love the way it fits and I’m especially fond of the smocked waistband. Anyway, I’ll keep my eye on it and definitely share when it’s back in stock!

This next dress has a very strong beachy, boho vibe and I feel like it could easily double as as swimsuit cover. The fabric is a bit textured, but still lightweight and breathable. I love the handkerchief hem and this one comes in several color options. And it’s less than twenty bucks!

This maxi dress is super fun because it has a “faux” wrap around look that ties on the side. Plus the fabric is SUPER soft and comfortable. I’m in my normal size, but if you don’t want a tight fit I’d suggest sizing up. This would be great for a night out and it also comes in red too.

I also found a really cute and comfortable shirt dress that I actually love way more expected to when I ordered it. This dress is so comfortable and lightweight, it basically just feels like you’re wearing a t-shirt. I love the large buttons and ruffle sleeves, however this white one is totally see-through. So for that reason I think it would make a fun swimsuit cover up. BUT it does come in other colors.See them all here.

This last dress is a super fun, off the shoulder midi dress that is surprisingly comfortable and lightweight. This is the perfect dress for dinner on the beach or a night out when you want to feel extra pretty. I love the eyelet embroidered detail and this one is less than $40. I’m in size small and I feel like it’s true to size. See it here.

Well I hope that helps if you’re looking for an affordable and cute dress for summer. I had a lot of fun putting this post together and I highly recommend checking out Walmart for more summer fashion. They have tons of awesome stuff right now (see all of their dresses here) and best of all many of their items even have free two day shipping!

    So cute! I love the way the buttons angle on the first one. I also love the halter style dress but the armholes look so big. Should I wear a cami or lacy bra? Always makes me sad when I love a dress and then see the arm openings go 5 inches down!!

    You wear them all beautifully, girl!

      Hi Jane, I’d say a strapless bra would be best for that halter dress. That’s what I did!
