As the temps rise and the summer 2019 heat wave continues, finding something cute to wear is becoming a serious situation. Pants are out of the question, as is anything else that requires a lot of fabric like maxi dresses and long-sleeve tops. And don’t get us started on delicate fabrics like silk that you definitely don’t want to ruin from sweat. The solution? An adorable, flowy mini dress, of course. Because when you can’t even begin to think about putting on clothes without breaking a sweat, a mini dress is the easiest way to stay cool and still look ultra-cute.

Luckily, there are plenty of gorgeous mini dresses on major sale at Nordstrom. Now, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale may have sadly ended, but there are still tons of fabulous styles on markdown in its incredibly amazing sale section. We’re talking about scoring the cutest styles from brands such as Reformation, Tanya Taylor, Something Navy, and more on sale for up to 65 percent off. And with prices as low as $24, you really can’t go wrong. We’re especially loving this trendy tie-dye number from Reformation, this leopard print puff-sleeve style from Something Navy for just $42, and this fiery red high-neck ribbed mini from BP.

Beating the heat has never looked so good (or cost this little!). So if you’re looking for a way to stay cool, look stylish, and save big on the best summer dresses, scroll down to shop eight of our favorite mini dresses and more on sale now at Nordstrom.
