We Found 29 Cute (& Affordable) Summer Dresses On Amazon

·3 min read

Amazon Prime Day is a flourishing digital haven of deeply discounted goods just begging to be shopped — and as it builds its luxury-fashion cred with a little help from Vogue and the CFDA, the site’s already-expansive selection of brands seems to know no bounds. But, if a fresh Tanya Taylor frock isn’t exactly what you (or your wallet) are in the market for right now, there’s still a sea of more affordable dresses to be unearthed within its shoppable universe of stuff — especially with summer on the horizon.

We're just about to sail through Prime Day 2020, we've unofficially transitioned into a new season and it's time for our wardrobes to follow suit. To prep for the warm-weather months ahead, we went digging for the best summer dresses on Amazon to add to cart along with all our other summer essentials (aka inflatable pools). And, in the spirit of keeping our finances in check, we limited our search to under-$100 garments only — distilling the bountiful findings down into a streamlined must-shop list of everything from pretty tiered maxis to printed minis.

Now, sit back and click through our roundup of Amazon's 29 best (and most affordable) summer dresses ahead.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff — and, while we do receive commission from Amazon, all of the goods linked to on our site are independently curated by our Most Wanted shopping team editors. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication.
