Summer dresses under $40, affordable fashion, Walmart outfit, white flutter sleeve tee shirt dress

I’m so excited to be partnering with Walmart again on today’s post! This time around I’m focusing on the Free Assembly line. I have been so impressed with this line. The quality is fantastic and everything is classic and timeless. Think neutrals, classic silhouettes, and high-quality basics that can be mixed and matched. With Free Assembly, no matter what your budget is, you can still look and feel great. 

Today I have four affordable summer dresses to share. All are from Free Assembly and all are super versatile and under $40.

For reference, I’m 5’7″ with a long torso and long legs. I typically wear a 27 in jeans or a size 4. My bra size is a 34D, and I am a true size medium in tops but sometimes size down for a more tailored fit or up for a more oversized fit. If I own the item I will always list my size and any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. (TTS= true to size!)

Free Assembly Flutter Sleeve Tee Shirt Dress

This little white dress is definitely an elevated version of the tee shirt dress. It’s cotton knit but made from a thicker fabric so it’s not at all sheer. I love that it can be dressed up or down and has the most flattering a-line silhouette. It also has the prettiest pleated flutter sleeves. It comes in several colors and I’m wearing a small.

Free Assembly Tiered Maxi Dress

I am beyond impressed with the quality of this gorgeous maxi dress! This dress feels like something you would find at a high-end department store but is under $40. The fit is incredible and I love the tiered style and self-tie shoulder straps. This would also make a perfect wedding guest dress! I’m wearing a small and it fits true to size.

Free Assembly midi tee shirt dress

I just love east dresses and a good basic tee shirt dress is a wardrobe must in the summer months. I love the flattering midi length of this one. It’s perfect for throwing on over a swimsuit or pairing with sandals or sneakers to run errands. You could even dress this up with a pair of wedges. It’s just a really comfy and versatile piece and again, the quality is fantastic. I’m in a small and I’d size down if between sizes.

Free Assembly Mini Dress

Finally, this little polka dot mini dress is so flirty and fun. It’s lightweight and just an easy-breezy throw-on-and-go dress, perfect for a date night. The black and white spotted print is absolutely adorable. I’m wearing a small and I think it fits true to size.
