Summer Vacation Dresses for Women
Do you get more excited about planning the vacation or planning the outfits you’re going to wear on the vacation? I’ll tell you that I am NOT a fan of the actual vacay planning like, at all. Put me in charge of curating the outfits and I’m so happy. I’ve always been a go-with-the-flow type of gal so when it comes to a summer vacation, I literally want to do NOTHING but relax and go out to cute dinners and shop around. No matter what you have planned for your trip, it’s always nice to feel your best and look your best. A fun, vibrant patterned beach dress is the perfect outfit for any summer vacation whether you’re actually on the beach or not!
The experience of shopping for a vacation is so wonderful to me. Thinking about all of the sights you’ll see, the memories you’re about to make, and the delicious food you’re about to consume in your new Insta-worthy outfits is euphoric!
In this post, I share the BEST vibrant summer vacation dresses for women.
We covered that I don’t necessarily enjoy planning the trip however, it’s an inevitable task because I sure do travel a lot. This summer, I am going on 4 beach trips (HAWAII!!!!) and spending time in numerous cities for work & play so I am DEEP in my online shopping right now.
I have recently found an online boutique, Hello Molly, that I have fallen in love with (not sponsored, just love them!) and I cannot wait to share the INSANELY gorgeous summer vacation dresses for women that I have found. I honestly could have easily linked all of them but I had to trim it down to a small-ish number to save us all some time.
I hope you find this list of 15 vibrant summer vacation dresses for women to be helpful in your hunt for the perfect beach dress!!
1. Only Up Dress Pink
I mean… just look at the detail on this gorgeous dress. Aka the crochet mini dress of my dreams!! I am loving the halter back with the double tie opening, the side cut-outs, and the colors are so summery and absolutely gorgeous together!
While shopping for an upcoming Spring wedding that I have to attend as a guest, I was SO tempted to buy this for that occasion. I decided to save it for my trip to Hawaii because those are the exact vibes it is giving me. The colors are so beachy and bright. This is a fantastic dress for an evening out or a summer wedding!
The perfect summer vacation dress exists. Imagine sipping on a skinny margarita on a rooftop bar overlooking the white sand beaches with a watercolor sunset on the horizon. Everything about this neon beachy slip dress is perfect for that beach vacation you have planned.
Tone it down but heat it up a notch with this perfectly pale silk dress. The straps come together in the back for a sexy yet sophisticated open back moment that plays perfectly with a sun kissed tan.
This is giving me Tulum vacation vibes and I love it!
The name of this maxi dress makes me giggle but it’s kind of perfect?! I’m so infatuated with all of the crocheted trends for this summer, if you see an upcoming blog post on crochet fashion… you know why. I can’t get enough of the chevron pattern and the amazing vintage tones of this maxi dress.
Take your summer vacation wardrobe to the next level with this adorable mini dress. The scalloped trim, front tie, and colorful print make this the perfect flirty summer dress. Throw on a distressed denim jacket and some strappy nude heels to take it from a romantic date night near the ocean to a
chill stroll to the beach town ice cream shop.
If you’re on the hunt for a more conservative looking summer vacation dress, I think this is the perfect pick! The flouncy sleeves and tie back make the perfect pair for this practical yet perfectly beachy dress. I would opt in for a basic nude clutch and nude heels to keep all eyes on this unforgettable dress.
As you can probably tell from my blog aesthetic, I really have an eye for the abstract-vintage look. This fuchsia dress is exactly my style and I added it to my cart immediately. I love the idea of chunky clear heels and a white bag to pair. Just look at the detail of the back – it is all perfection!
Contrary to the name of the dress, this gorgeous creamy-coffee and mocha-swirl dress would look like a million bucks on your beach trip. I know this post is all about vibrant summer vacation dresses but I just had to share this gorgeous midi dress. Shades of brown are SO trendy right now.
I’m not kidding – I found this dress and immediately searched in hopes of finding it in every single color. It’s SO trendy and would look fantastic on every body type. The watermelon color palette and halter back are such an iconic combo on such a vintage looking summer dress. 10/10!
This is such a fun and flirty dress to turn heads in this summer. The print reminds me of something straight out of a Love Shack Fancy store but without the massive price tag.
Dress this up with heels or dress it down with a pair of white sneakers.
I ordered this for obvious reasons. There must be serotonin in this dress because just looking at it makes me super happy. The combination of colors is perfect for summer! I will be wearing it with nude mules and gold hoops for a daytime date at the beach. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
14. Jassie Dress Red
This gorgeous ribbed knit dress is so perfect for a beach vacation! You can wear this as a beach coverup that can transition into an evening dinner dress without having to put in too much effort to change. I would style this with nude heels and a Kelly green (my favorite color at the moment) bag!
Last but not least – the cutest pastel mini dress I’ve ever seen. From the ruching to the open back and vibrant tie-dye; what’s not to love? This is definitely the perfect summer vacation dress and would also look amazing for a beachy destination wedding guest dress!

I plan on putting together a look-book of all of my beach outfits that I have planned for my upcoming vacations this year. So many exciting things to look forward to! My boyfriend and I are meeting my mom and brother in Kauai this June. My brother lives in Australia so Hawaii is the halfway point for all of us. We haven’t seen him since December 2019! It's going to be INSANE!
