You can’t talk about summer wardrobes without mentioning the sundress. A sundress is the pinnacle of summer style—it can be worn almost anywhere and is the most fun warm-weather silhouette to dress up (bye-bye, denim shorts!). Plus, it’s an easy throw-on-and-go outfit for when it’s boiling outside. Adding a new sundress to our arsenal is something we look forward to every year, but there’s no doubt that they can be pricey. Thankfully, Walmart has a vast selection of chic sundresses. Even better—our favorite summer dresses from Walmart all cost $50 or less.

From pretty eyelet frocks to breezy floral sundresses, there’s a style for every occasion. For days by the beach, style a strappy floral dress over your bathing suit with flip-flops for a laidback look. On farmer’s market days, opt for a white linen midi-dress, or wear it with sneakers to the office. Ahead, our favorite summer dresses from Walmart that you’ll want to wear all summer long.
