Suddenly, This Casual Dress Trend Is Popping Up All Over the Place

·3 min read

There's nothing better than slipping into your most beloved summer dress for a day of socializing with your favorite people. While this summer brings about a refreshing joy, those frocks you lived in last summer might seem irrelevant. However, when we saw this timeless style pop back onto the scene, it made us do a double take for more reasons than one. This summer dress trend we speak of is easy, casual, and versatile: scrunched camisole dresses. This spaghetti-strap dress is identified by its delicate ruching along the front neckline, sometimes accompanied by a small tie or bow.

You'll often see this dress in kitschy prints like bold florals, fruits, and even landscapes, and if that doesn't put you in the summer mood, I don't know what will. Whether you wear this dress around your home or save it for when socializing is normal yet again, I can guarantee your heart will be satisfied with the purchase for many months to come.

The good news about this summer dress trend is that it has become so popular that it will suit a vast array of style types and moods. Just go ahead and scroll through the selection ahead—you'll see.

This casual dress trend is perfect for laying on a blanket in the grass and daydreaming all afternoon. If you have yet to realize that that is one of the most relaxing summer activities, come talk to me.
