Finding the perfect dress to wear on a hot day can be tricky. After all, fashion matters just as much as function. And while many dresses offer easy to wear fabrics and cuts, peasant style dresses offer a definite feminine flair with billowing, lightweight materials, flattering patterns and lace and embroidery accents. This means you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. If you haven’t added a peasant dress to your wardrobe yet, keep reading to see what to look for and how to make it work for you.
Rainbow of Colors

Peasant dresses aren’t just cute in warm weather. Add tights, boots and a jacket to work this ultra femme look all year round.
Nip in the Waist
Classic, vintage design with a V neckline that will work for just about every figure. Milumia
If you want to add a bit of shape to your peasant dress, look for a style with a nipped in waist to balance the volume of the sleeves and skirt. You can also add structure with a denim or leather jacket that cuts in at the midsection.
Variety of Sizes
Flowy material with a built in cotton slip underneath, available in up to a 3X. Sakkas
Tight clothing in sweltering weather is a no-go. Boho summer dresses allow air to circulate, keeping you cool and dry even on blistering hot days. This number can double as a particularly chic beach coverup.
