I’m going on vacation to the Caribbean, and I’m looking for a dress that’s fun, tropical and age-appropriate. I want to be able to wear it on my trip, as well as at home in the summer. Thanks, Nicole
A cheery little sundress with some tropical punch is the perfect outfit to make you look hot, hot, hot! Here are a few cute sundresses for women over 40 with a laid-back island feel.
A Romantic Sundress
Statement sleeves, in particular, big flowy bell sleeves with a 70’s boho vibe have been super popular in the last year. They have a very feminine, romantic quality to them which makes them perfect for a breezy down south sundress.
This Lilly Pulitzer silk tunic dress with bell sleeves is just what I mean ( also in white). It’s light, flirty and feminine. Wear it with some dangly earrings and flat, metallic sandals for a casual, romantic dinner down at the beach. More fabulous Lily Pulitzer dresses here.
Hawaiian Punch With a Twist
Most tropical prints are bright, loud and wild in shades of orange, red, green and electric blue, but that’s not for everyone. If you like a tropical print but not all that color, then this black and white tropical faux wrap dress is for you. It has energy and life, but it doesn’t feel like your typical Hawaiian punch.
High Low Midnight Magic
Colorful florals on black inky backgrounds like black or navy continue to trend even in resort wear. This glamorous, floaty dress has sun-bleached palm fronds that create a modern and mysterious mood. A high -low hem adds a creative edge and the interesting one shoulder detail adds a sexy touch.
Cool off in White
Look like an island girl in this breezy white fluid chiffon floral print dress. It’s an ideal dress for a sand and sea vacation. This is an easy to wear style because of the thick straps, v neckline and stretchy draped waist and that lovely slit adds just the right amount of allure.
Pretty in Paradise
Soft and dreamy, this cold shoulder flowy shift dress will make you feel relaxed and carefree.This is such a cute beach day dress. You can’t go wrong with a cute pair of flats. And aren’t those colors just dreamy?
This lovely tropical maxi dress is as beautiful and serene as a tropical island sunset. It’s a pretty and practical dress for shopping, lunch, or happy hour after a long day in the sun.
