We're celebrating summer solstice by re-upping our wardrobe with summer dresses—the one-and-done wardrobe staple we can throw on in seconds and feel effortlessly put together. Luckily, you don't have to break your budget to find yourself some worthy pieces. As a fashion girlie whose job is to find the best deals on the internet, let me tell you: Amazon has a massive selection of high-quality, gorgeous summer dresses that'll keep you cool all summer long.

You can find everything from casual ruched dresses to floral maxi dresses, which are perfect for picnics, outings with friends, rooftop bar hangs, and so much more. Some are functional, like this ruffled maxi dress with pockets. Yes, you heard right. Pockets!! Lucky for our wardrobes and wallets, everything is under $50.

We scoured Amazon's selection and found the cutest and affordable summer dresses. Now all you need is a pair of comfy sandals or sneakers (as it so happens, we've also got you covered there), some SPF, and you're good to go for the season.

This Hill House dupe will only set you back $48, and it’s nearly identical to its designer counterpart. The dress has a flow-y drape fit to allow for air flow and mobility, and ruffled straps for a pretty flair. The best part of the dress? It has pockets (yes, pockets). So ditch the purse and throw on your favorite pair of sandals or mules. You’ll be good to go.

Loemes, Cute Floral Flowy Knee Length — $34.00

Sizes available: S-XL

Looking for a dress for a daytime activity? We love this knee-length nap dress (another Hill House dupe!) for so many reasons. The dress is breathable, lightweight, and incredibly cute, so it’s no wonder why it boasts more than 250 five-star ratings. What’s more, it comes in a whopping 22 colors, from sunflower yellow to sage green.

Btfbm, Women Sleeveless Bodycon Ruched Short Dress — $17.00

Sizes available: S-XL

Yes, besties—bodycon dresses are BACK in a big way, and we’re embracing this curve-loving style. Made of polyester and a forgiving, comfortable spandex, the soft fabric moves with you, while the ruching gives you some texture. Since the silhouette and colors are timeless (there are 27 color options), you can spruce up this little number with your favorite pair of heels and sandals or down with some comfy kicks.

tshirt dress
Anrabess, Women's Summer Casual Short Sleeve Crewneck Swing Dress

Sizes available: S-XXL

A pull-on T-shirt dress is a must for summer. It’s versatile, lightweight, and layers nicely with a swimsuit, if you plan on taking it to the beach or pool. This T-shirt dress has a tiered skirt, which we personally prefer over a more simple A-line—it gives it more personality that way. The soft, stretchy fabric makes this ideal for all-day wear, whether you’re roadtripping across the country or working from home on the couch.

Garden party or rooftop bar, Pretty Garden’s Floral Summer Dress will rise to any occasion. The one-shoulder design and ruffled hem adds a whimsical (yet elevated) flare. Plus, you get to choose from 26 colors. Let’s just say it: the outfit opportunities are endless.

Sizes available: XS-XL

Casual doesn’t always mean boring, and this dress from Pink Queen is the epitome of fun. It’s available in a whopping 35 colors, from pink and orange to lavender, and each dress has a duo color way because two colors are twice as fun. Constructed out of a viscose and spandex blend, this dress is ultra stretchy, so you don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable during the day. Cut-outs are all the rage this year, giving our wardrobe a more interesting dimension.

Shallmu, Floral Midi Dress — $35.00

Sizes available: S-XXL

If you want something more bold, color-wise, Shallmu’s Midi Dress has a daisy-like print that reads “summer.” This dress boasts a tie-front, so that you can adjust it to your unique body shape. We also love the elongated sleeves, which provide coverage from the sun during the warmer months. Throw on a sun hat and a cute pair of sandals, and you’ll be ready to hit the beach.

y2k dress
Argeousgor, Y2K One Shoulder Midi Dress — $19.00

Sizes available: S-XL

We found this dress through Christina Zilber, founder of Jouer Cosmetics, who posted an OOTD video on Instagram. Seeing this designer dupe modeled by Zilber, the fit is sexy and fun—perfect to dress up or down (great for weddings, but also we’re imagining throwing on a pair of white sneakers and going to brunch in it). With details like the side cut-out, single shoulder strap, asymmetrical hem, and the all-over pleated texture, this dress will make you stand out wherever you are. Best of all? It’s under $20!
