Summers Best Event Dresses from Chicwish

My last Chicwish post featured spring workwear finds, and today, I’m back to share summer’s best event dresses. I’ve always loved this vintage-inspired brand for its affordable and unique styles, and these summer dresses did not disappoint. If you’re not familiar with Chicwish, keep reading to learn more about the brand. And if you are, skip ahead to my top summer dress picks.


What You Need to Know About Chicwish

Almost everything on the Chicwish site is under $100, with an average price of $50. The quality is similar to brands like ASOS,  Modcloth, or Zara. I’ve always been pleasantly surprised with the quality of Chicwish clothing and think it’s consistent with the pricing. If you’re wondering, my Chicwish pieces have washed well and maintained their shape. I recommend, however, that you read reviews on any of the pieces you’re considering adding to your cart.

The Chicwish Shopping Experience

With hundreds of pieces in every category, the Chicwish site can be overwhelming to navigate. I always start with a list of pieces that I’m looking for and then check out their Instagram page for inspiration. For this post, I focused on spring workwear.

Chicwish Sizing

I’ve found the sizing to be pretty consistent for the most part. I always refer to the sizing charts to compare exact measurements and read the reviews. It’s important to note that many sweaters and skirts run S/M and M/L, so consider that when shopping. I’ve tried clothing and accessories from almost every category that Chicwish offers except swimwear so that I can speak with authority on cost, quality, and fit.

A feature that I always think is helpful is to see a piece styled in real life, especially for spring workwear. For many items, you’ll see an Instagram carousel at the bottom of the page showing the item styled by a customer or influencer. If there aren’t any photos, I will usually skip that item.

Shipping and Returns

Chicwish is based in China, but your order will ship from warehouses in the U.S., the U.K., Germany, Belgium, Canada, or Australia, depending on your location and where the items are in stock. Processing time is 3 – 4 days, and you’ll receive your order in 8 – 12 business days after it has shipped. Shipping rates depend on the location, but in the US, for orders over $50, shipping is free. The spring workwear items I ordered arrived in just over two weeks.

If you are in the US, the brand offers 30-day free returns with two options: store credit plus an additional $5 to spend or refund back to your original payment. That gives me extra confidence when I’m making a purchase. Returned items must be unworn, unused, and in original packaging with attached tags. Simply contact the brand for a return slip and further instructions to start your return.

Best Summer Dresses

Halter Neck Maxi Dress

Pink is not going away anytime soon, and I couldn’t resist this vibrant pink maxi dress. This summer dress is a great option for a summer wedding. A halter neck is always flattering, and the checked pattern breaks up the bright pink. This dress is fully lined. Wearing a size XS.

Embriordered Cut-Out Maxi Dress

I remember seeing Laura style this boho maxi dress earlier this spring and immediately added it to my cart. I couldn’t resist the sweet embroidery detail, along with the smocking and classic blue and white print. This dress would be ideal for a summer street festival, outdoor party, or shower. Wearing an XS.

Halter Neck Jumpsuit

Obviously, this is not a summer dress. But it is a gorgeous jumpsuit that checks all the boxes for a summer event one-and-done piece. The bow knot is a fun detail, and the indigo-blue color is really pretty. I loved that the length was perfect for a low heel (I’m 5’4″ for reference and wearing a small).

Floral Mini Dress

I saved the best for last. This floral print mini dress is my favorite. I was immediately drawn to the retro print and tiered hemline. It’s also so easy to dress up or down. It would be perfect for so many summer occasions, from a graduation party to a concert. Wearing a size XS.
