Also known as the Sundress. The term “sundress” was coined in the 1940s; however, the style of dress became popular during the 1950s. Sundresses are casual dresses made with open necklines and light fabrics, such as cotton. Floral prints and cutouts are also common in sundresses. Sundresses are usually sleeveless and loose-fitting—making them an ideal outfit for warm weather—and come in a variety of lengths including mini dresses, midi dresses, and wrap dresses.
