As I write my upcoming Packing eBook for Europe, I’m inspired by my recent trip to Paris and want to share these as my top summer dresses for a trip abroad!
Top Summer Dresses for a Trip Abroad – Perfect for Paris!
All the dresses shown are from Nordstrom which offers stylish items at a price range to suit all budgets. They also carry a wide selection of brands and sizes making them more appealing to a broader range of female travelers.
Because last week’s trip is on my mind, these are all airy lightweight summer dresses I’d love to pack for a trip to Paris this season. 7 dresses = 7 days easy travel outfits!
Dresses are also an easy packing solution for summer travel. By packing 7 summer dresses like the ones featured you have 7 unique travel outfits that transition from day to night. All you need is a touch up of makeup and a blazer and you’re Parisian chic!
Below our top summer dresses for a trip abroad:
A breezy linen shirtdress is a travel must-have for the summer. Whether it’s worn on its own, used as a swim cover or styled as a belted day dress, you can’t go wrong with a piece as versatile as this!
A shift dress is another easy classic for trips abroad. This piece from Hinge is sweet, summery and sure to add such a pretty touch to your travel wardrobe!
Rompers and chambray garments are both travel friendly, so it only makes sense that we feature a combination of the two. You’ll get through the warm summer days in ease and style with Caslon’s ultra cute chambray romper.
Bobeau’s back cutout tunic dress works a t-shirt dress as well, giving you a relaxed yet stylish 2-in-1 piece for your travels. Pair with sandals, a denim jacket and a leather crossbody for a stylishly undone day look and ankle boots and jewelry for a cool evening getup.
No summer wardrobe is complete without a breezy maxi dress. They’re one of the easiest ways to look glamorous with minimal effort, making them a must-have for summer trips abroad. The lace print of this London Times piece is bold yet elegant while a braided tassel drawstring at the waist brings it all together. Perfect for a dinner out or anytime you want to feel extra fabulous.
Few garments are as perfect for summer as a floral sundress. The pretty Olivia wrap dress by Lush would be a gorgeous complement to warm European days out and about. Don’t forget the espadrilles!
We also can’t get enough of this pretty Felicity & Coco number. With a simple yet elegant high-low silhouette, there are plenty of ways to style this dress to your liking and make it work for your travels. Add a belt, a bold clutch and heels for an instant evening getup or keep things daytime casual with sandals and sunnies.
And lastly, Leith’s bodycon tank dress is thoroughly loved here at Travel Fashion Girl. It’s a perfect travel dress that’s offered in a variety of colors and we simply can’t stop raving about it! Pair with stylish sandals and a cardigan for a stylish day look and a leather jacket and booties for an evening out.
Pair it with Classic Leather Sandals
Pair any of the above summer dresses with classic leather sandals like these below or even classic Superga style sneakers – all similar styles to the ones I saw in Paris and Rome last week. Items shown feature brands known for comfort.
