BY: Editors | Jun 22, 2018

Warmer weather calls for bare legs and twirlable skirts. It also calls for frequent post-work margaritas, outdoor concerts, and family vacations. So that means you need cute cheap summer dresses that won't break your budget, forcing you to spend gorgeous days working overtime. To get you inspired, here are some of our favorite cheap summer dresses:

 

1. Tie-Front Button-Down A-Line Midi Dress

The flowy skirt gives you coverage while the peek-a-boo tie-front adds a little flirtiness to this dress. It works great for daytime, but it's still just dressy enough that adding the right accessories (peep-toe heels and statement earrings perhaps?) means it works just as well for night-time.
