Our Favorite Sundresses To Wear This Summer

In the dog days of summer, we tend to look for no-nonsense outfits that will keep us cool despite the warm weather. How do we balance simplicity and comfort without forgetting about fashion? With a sundress, of course!

Googling the word, one comes across a few common characteristics in the dresses that are pictured:

  • Easy to wear all day in warm weather
  • Summery prints and colors
  • Casual yet pretty

A deeper dive into the history of sundresses reveals that Palm Beach designer Lilly Pulitzer helped to popularize the trend in the 1960s. It makes sense that our South Florida neighbor saw the necessity of this effortless summer staple amid our subtropical temps.

At Anthony’s, we offer a variety of sundresses in a gorgeous range of colors, silhouettes, and fabrics that you will want to wear all season long. Here, we would like to showcase eight irresistible examples of this timeless dress style for you to add to your wishlist!

Would love if Anthony’s brand would come out with a petite dress. I am 5 foot one and a half and most of the dresses are too long. Even sundresses should be made available for petites.

Dresses are too short for me

I love the materials and cuts but the Dresses are too short: bellow knee would be so much better as few women have gorgeous legs like models.

“sundress” by definition is sleeveless and not long. Come on, folks. It’s called top 8 sundresses.

Love Anthony’s brand dresses…material, prints, colors…however the length is too short for me. I am 5’ 9” so they hit above my knees. Not an attractive length for anyone over 60. Please add more length to your great brand of dresses.

Agree with having more longer length. I’m 71, 5’7", and prefer dresses at the knee, not several inches above. Thanks for listening.

Everyone mentioned sleeves what about hem length ? None of those women look good . Sorry but ,not many of us can have them above our knees. Why don’t they give them some length .You can’t sit or bend over.
I think of a cute story my friend and I where at a dressing room . This lady said to us is dress ok . My friend said I guess if you don’t bend over. The lady said that’s no problem I won’t be . She walked off and we just looked at each other smiling . There was no way she could walk or sit in that dress.

I am tall and like dresses knee length…most of the dresses are several inches above the knee. I am seventy , 5’10 and would like to see some longer styles, but not mid calf dresses either.

I love love ibkul long sleeve tops. I agree with women over 50 prefer 3.4 or long sleeves. Please work on bringing these designs and patterns in your next line of dresses.

We are proud to offer a wide range of dresses at Anthony’s, though the examples of sundresses that we featured in this blog post were only sleeveless and short sleeve varieties. In researching this blog post, the general definition of sundresses that we came across did not typically include 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve dresses. We are always happy to receive customer input and from your comments on this post, we have learned that our customers have a desire to see sundresses with longer sleeves showcased more often. We will certainly do so in future posts on sundresses. We do indeed carry many longer sleeved dresses with UPF50+ sun protection fabric which can be found on here on our website:

Many women over 50 will only wear clothes with sleeves; your sun dresses are sleeveless!
