This post was originally published in 2020 but most of these summer dresses and skirts from Amazon are still available. Colors or sizes may be limited now.

For size comparison, I’m 5’2″/ 154. 5 lbs. (at the time this review was conducted.) I usually wear a 6/ small to medium bottoms and small to medium tops. Usually Amazon items run small for me, but I misjudged most of these items and ordered one size too big. You can still get the idea of these look and fit.

Riders by Lee Indigo Women’s Stretch Denim Jacket This is my second attempt at getting a lightwash denim jacket for summer and I struck out with this one too. I really wanted it to work as this one is soft and stretchy but I ordered a medium and it’s too big. I have a small on the way but it might still be a tad long for me. If you are taller or have a longer torso, consider this jacket. It comes in other colors.

Goodthreads Women’s Washed Linen Blend Flutter Sleeve Peasant Dress also 55% linen/ 45% cotten. This one felt a little heavier than the one above so I was not as excited about it. I think after washing it would relax and hang better. Wearing medium, need a small.

This was mostly about summer dresses and skirts, but I threw in a few other summer essential pieces.

Anbech Women’s O-Neck Short Sleeve T Shirts Twist Front/ Daily Ritual Women’s Denim Turn-Cuff Short I’m looking to add some tie dye to my closet and though this twist top would be fun. I have no complaints about it but I ordered a medium and need a small. I’m wearing the shorts in a 29 which is technically one size up for me. If you dresses and skirts aren’t your thing, and you need some denim shorts, I highly recommend these. They come in other washed and white too.

Amazon Essentials Women’s Studio Terry Fleece Romper I love my joggers in this material, so this was a no brainer, other than rompers being hard to fit. I ordered a medium but it’s big in the top so I’m waiting on a small to arrive.
