Nothing screams sleek summer-in-the-city style quite like a minimalist dress. Just take Kendall Jenner, for example. Earlier this month the supermodel stepped out in a mini tank dress that rivaled an iconic Carrie Bradshaw look from the original Sex and the City series. From the Australia-based brand St. Agni, Jenner’s minimalist mini proved that sometimes less really is more. Just in time for peak heat, find our edit of 40+ minimalist summer dresses, which are quickly becoming the ultimate cool-girl staple.

Back to St. Agni: The quietly luxurious label is a must-have in any warm-weather wardrobe, beginning with their off-white linen minidress. Styling-wise, pair with a fashionable flip-flop and shoulder bag for chic city attire. Similar to St. Agni, Posse is another Aussie brand we can’t stop shopping. Posse’s roster includes minimalist style staples from pajama-inspired pants to sleek suit vests, and the striped Camille dress is trending now (we won’t be tiring of it any time soon). Clean-lined dresses from Theory, Toteme, and Tibi make the perfect mate for any summer shoe—think pairs of mesh Mary Janes, chunky sandals, or even the occasional sneaker.

An LBD is a consistent minimalist mainstay—and these ones from Reformation, Proenza Schouler, and Zimmermann are as timeless as ever. Bright white dresses from Helsa, Another Tomorrow, and Leset are not to be ignored either. Finally, like Jenner’s very own, tank top dresses from Prada, Loewe, and Skims are effortlessly easy to wear. You could throw them on over a statement swimsuit or underneath a blazer for a take on modern workwear.

This summer a minimalist summer dress is the only way to beat the heat in style. Below, prepare to sport (and shop!) 40+ minimalist summer dresses that scream chic.
