Believe it or not, your hair type and pattern can be a major deciding factor is what type of summer dresses look best. After all, your hair is one of your major fashion statements, and you better than anyone that it can’t be ignored! Whether you’re rocking long, bohemian waves, an afro or a TWA, here are our picks of the best summer dresses for curls, coils and waves.

Wavy Maxis

The more patterned of a dress you put on, the more texture your waves will appear to have. As a wavy, one of our biggest concerns is trying to get bigger, better curls without heat. It’s a daunting task to say the least given that most of us sport fine, thin manes that don’t hold larger curls very well or for very long.

But not to fear! With summer near, you can simply slip on a colorful, patterned maxi dress and let your waves hang loose. The more pattern that the dress has, especially closer to your face (think v-neck rather than strapless”>, the more texture your hair will appear to have. It is a great time-saving trick that will let you show off your tan too!
