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!


Summer Dresses for a Trip Abroad


Table Of Contents


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:




Linen Cotton Shirtdress


Breezy Linen Shirtdress


These easy pieces are 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 dress as versatile as this!

Racerback Shift Dress


Shift Dress


A shift dress is another easy classic for trips abroad. This piece from Leith is sweet, summery and sure to add such a pretty touch to your travel wardrobe!




Chambray Romper


Rompers and Chambray


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 an ultra cute chambray romper.




Mini Dress with Pockets


Cut-Out Tunic Dress


A cutout tunic dress can work as 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.




V-Neck Maxi Dress


Breezy Maxi Dress


Updated description: 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. Wear them out sightseeing in the day and then wear them out to dinner later in the evening.




Flare Retro Wrap Midi Dress


Floral Sundress


Few garments are as perfect for summer as a floral sundress. They’re a gorgeous complement to warm European days out and about. Don’t forget the espadrilles!




Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress


Tank Dress


Updated description: 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.




Conchlusion Gladiator Sandal


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.

When it comes to stylish and comfortable footwear, Europe does it best!


Here are comfortable walking sandals that are stylish, too!
