Finding appropriate, stylish dresses for teen girls can often be an exercise in futility. If the length is right, the top might be cut too low. If the top fits nicely the skirt might be too short. Thankfully, we have had some luck this summer in finding cute dresses that fit all our needs for fit and style.
The first dress we found is from Aeropostale. It is their Southwestern High-Neck Fit and Flare Dress. This dress has adjustable straps and an elasticized back that makes it fit beautifully in the waist. The flowy skirt bottom is just the right length for a modern but modest summer look. The denim jacket is in a stretch denim and distressed fabric from H&M.
JCrew Factory offers a Striped Organza Dress in Coral that is perfect for any summer event that requires being a little more dressed up. A thoughtful feature with this dress is that it has hidden side-seam pockets. It also has adjustable straps and is lined. The bright stripes make it a great preppy look for summer. Pair with gladiator sandals and you are good to go.
Old Navy came out with a multitude of functional summer dresses this year but the Multi-Print Cami Dress is our favorite. It is bright and fun and definitely says “summer is here!” As with the other dresses this one has adjustable straps, a side-zipper, elasticized back and is lined.
Throughout our searches the key components that we have found make great dresses for teens are: adjustable straps, side-seam pockets if possible, and a colorful pattern. When all of these criteria align it is a beautiful thing.
