The next best thing to going on vacation is shopping for all your vacation outfits. Something about dressing like your most carefree self can put you in the mood to sip a drink from a pineapple and log out of your email. Of course, if you’re looking for the easiest outfits to pack, they should be a range of vacation dresses.
Vacation dresses are cute, casual, comfy and a little more fun than something you might wear at home. You can wear them during the day and night, over a swimsuit or under a denim jacket and with sandals or sneakers. And no one makes this style of dress better than Free People.
Even if you’re not a fan of Free People’s more bohemian looks, the brand has a wide range of vacation dresses that are simple yet effortlessly cool. From maxi dresses to mini lengths, take a look below at seven picks under $100.
1. Free People La La Maxi Dress, $98
This easy, breezy maxi dress comes in eight colors. You can wear it with platform sandals to dinner or over your swimsuit to the beach.
2. Free People Knock Out Mini, $78
This one-shoulder mini-dress comes in black (because you can always use an LBD), bright blue and hot pink. It has a tie in the back so you can cinch the waist as tight as you want and a cute button detail up the side that gives it a more casual feel.
3. Free People At Leisure Midi Dress, $98
This is one of those dresses you can wear out for drinks, dinner and dancing. (At least, one of my best friends does every time she wears this dress to the Hamptons.) It has an adjustable one-shoulder strap, an adjustable belt and a smocked back for ultimate comfort.
4. Free People Rosalia Low-Back Mini, $50
This is your standard T-shirt dress made a little flirty thanks to the low back. The cotton mini is easy to pack and throw on over a swimsuit or wear on its own with espadrilles to go sightseeing.
5. Free People Simply Biased Slip, $60
I’d argue that everyone should pack a simple slip dress for vacation because its versatility could allow you to wear it more than once. Wear it on its own with sandals, under a sweater on a chillier day or over a T-shirt if you’re trying to cover your shoulders. This one comes in 12 colors and has adjustable straps.
6. Free People Allure Maxi, $98
This maxi dress has a sarong-inspired skirt that pretty much begs to go on vacation with you. It’s available in four colors, has a smocked back and the straps are adjustable. Wear it with heels, flip-flops or sneakers.
7. Free People Essentially The Best Mini, $60
This cotton linen mini dress is perfect for hot, sunny days when you want to avoid any awkward tan lines outside. However, it’s also cute enough to wear out in the evening.
