When it’s hot and humid out but I want to look put together, I can always rely on the trusty swing dress to take me from errands to evening cocktails with ease. Light, breezy and universally flattering, I stumbled upon ShopTheMint.com and found a fabulous variety of summer swing dresses to stock up on. BONUS: transition these dresses in the fall with a cute riding boot, scarf and denim/moto jacket and you’re set!
Here’s how I took my new favorite swing dress from daytime shopping to a classy summer dinner in a flash…
Summer Swing Dresses
My biggest tip when shopping for swing dresses is to NOT size up. Because this cut is already loose-fitting, you definitely don’t want to add more weight to your body frame. My favorite feature on ShopTheMint.com was how I could chat with a stylist. Since I’m inevitably always in between sizes, I chatted with a stylist about a few of the dresses I was interested in ordering. I gave her my measurements and height and I’m SO glad she advised me to order Smalls. I nearly ordered Mediums and they definitely would have been too big.
ShopTheMint also categorizes their merchandise in such an easy-to-shop way, and I loved
wasting time browsing the LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT outfit game (vote on which items you love). I picked this soft baby blue floral dress because it has pockets and I just love anything that has a beachy vibe.

To switch things up, all you need is a fancier pair of shoes and a smaller purse. That’s it.
