Whether you’re putting together a small capsule wardrobe or you’re shopping until your closet bursts, Velvet Heart has the best suggestions for light, flowy summer and spring dresses that will ensure your comfort, making you look and feel beautiful! Check out some of our favorite styles to figure out what you need to round out your warm-weather attire.

1. Babydoll

One of our favorite cuts, the babydoll dress has tons of perks! If you’re self-conscious about your tummy or you just want to emphasize your legs, this is the airy summer dress that does it all! With a loose fit that doesn’t restrict your body and a short hemline to keep you cool, there’s always something sassy in the shape of a babydoll dress.

At Velvet Heart, you can find loose, casual dresses in lightweight materials and unique prints that speak to you. Explore animal prints, tie-dye patterns, and solid gem tones that make your style pop!

2. Tiered

Shelly Sleeveless Tiered Dress Blue Sanded ($98)

Tiered dresses evolved from smock style pieces to provide you with an elevated and sophisticated silhouette that’s still a little more relaxed. With so many lengths, colors, and embellishments in our tiered airy summer dresses, you’re spoiled for choice! Find tiered dresses in a loose, babydoll style for extra comfort, as well as cinched-waist looks to accentuate your shape.

Velvet Heart has a curated collection of tiered midi and maxi dresses that can help you find your vibe for any type of day. Head out to the beach in a pale blue light and flowy summer sundress or meet up for a date in a sleeveless, ruffled design.

3. Drop Waist

Popularized during the 1920s, drop waist dresses are seeing a huge comeback. From wedding dresses and formal looks to airy summer dresses and happy hour styles, you can find a dropped waist in nearly every category. We love a dropped waist because it works with many body types – it’s the inclusive cut of the season!

Drop waist dresses are meant to be worn a little on the looser side. So when you’re shopping our collection, make sure to check your measurements to find a size that provides you with a bit of extra breathing room.

4. Tie-Waist

Melia Dolman Sleeve Dress Lilac ($88)

A dress with a tie at the waist is a great choice for an airy summer dress because it provides you with so much versatility. Tie your belt tight or loose depending on your preference, or leave it completely untied for a relaxed fit that’s perfect for lounging. You can change the shape and feel of this type of dress immediately just by playing with the tie!
