There are certain styles that are synonymous with a season, and breezy dresses definitely belong to summer. That's because a great dress allows you to feel put together with a single piece rather than multiple items or any type of layering. Plus, there are countless styles from which to choose. So if you're shopping for a smocked dress that's as fun as it is cute, Amazon shoppers are eager to share why they love this cotton-linen dress that's under $45.

The Miessial midi-length dress is made from a combination of 80 percent cotton and 20 percent linen to create a comfortable, lightweight feel that's ideal for summer's high temperatures. The ease of the dress only continues with how you put it on: Just pull it on over your head. It even has a keyhole button closure in the back to add structure and style.

Two other standout features of this summer dress are the smocked top and ruffled cap sleeves, which together add a fun, flirty touch. Plus, the smocked style even has a hidden feature: It has pockets. The summer dress is available in five sizes (0-2, 4-6, 8, 10, and 12) in three colors with stripes and one with polka dots (though there are other midi dress styles available through the same product listing). But before you order, shoppers and the brand recommend reviewing the size chart.

"This summer dress is a must have," began one shopper who said they wore their dress weekly throughout the season. They continued, "It's so comfortable, and the material is breathable—even on humid days." Another shopper called the cut of the dress "incredibly flattering," highlighted the pockets, and added, "The fabric is just heavyweight enough to give shape and definition without being too heavy for the [tropical] climate I live in."

"This dress was even better than expected," wrote another reviewer who said the dress is reminiscent of styles from Anthropologie and Free People. They continued, "The sizing chart was right on. Perfect!"

Whether you're already embracing dresses this season or you're hoping to start off with a great midi-length piece, add the Miessial dress to your summer style rotation for just $42.
