As the days get longer and warmer, summer dresses are likely topping your shopping list — there’s nothing like an easy, breezy sundress when it’s hot out, right? Whether you’re running weekend errands, strolling seaside in sandals, or heading out to celebrate a special occasion (like a family member’s graduation), the quintessential summer style never fails. That said, finding the right sundress can be tricky — and that’s true at any age. But finding styles as you get older that are fun, fashionable, and well, not dowdy (ugh) can be a struggle. That’s why we’ve shopped out the best sundresses for folks over 50 (honestly you can wear them at any age — we just noticed many people were searching for this, specifically).

Traditionally, sundresses have called to mind shorter, spaghetti-strap styles in flimsy fabrics — and those still count, of course. But if what you wore at 22 doesn’t necessarily work for you anymore, there are plenty of on-trend sundresses out there to keep you looking — and feeling — stylish, on-trend, and sexy this summer. It’s all about what you feel most comfortable in.

So whether it’s a relaxed-fit cotton beach maxi, floral fit-and-flare midi dress, short-sleeve striped number, or a bold, printed tunic, a frock that will check all the boxes for you is just a few clicks away. Scroll on to shop 18 sundresses for women over 50.
