20 Dreamy Beach Dresses To Wear This Summer

So dreamy!

Now that we've finally made it to summer, it's time to ditch those bulky layers and hit the beach. And while you'll most likely be donning a bikini or one-piece bathing suit while frolicking in the sun, you may want to consider a pretty beach dress to put over top of your swimwear.

Not only are beach dresses super practical, but they can also be quite dreamy and pretty, too. Plus, many of them can easily be transitioned into evening wear, should you need to head out to a nice dinner post-sun. Just throw on a pair of heels, add a few accessories and a nice clutch and voila! Instant evening attire.

We've rounded up 20 gorgeous beach dresses that we're itching to add to our wardrobes. Check them out below!
