This mid-length floral print dress is bright and airy, making it perfect for a backyard party. Pair it with braided strap heeled sandals to dress it up or flat sandals to dress it down.

This vintage-style dress is a classy option with a fitted top and a flared floral skirt. It’s a great dress for a sophisticated graduation celebration with lots of family.

This maxi wrap dress is a fun boho version of the summer dress. The long length with a cinched waist creates a gorgeous silhouette, and the high slit adds a playful element.

Family Outing/Girls’ Day Dresses

A beautiful summer day is ideal for a family picnic or brunch with the girls. Grab your favorite sundress and get ready for a fun-filled day.

This floral cap-sleeved dress is a flowy, flirty style for a girls’ brunch. Style it with heeled sandals or wedges to feel extra fancy.

This mini dress is cute and comfy! The neck ties closed for a more elegant look, or it can be left untied for a more casual vibe.

This pretty ruffle dress with bold pops of color is a sweet outfit for a family picnic or a date with your S.O.!! Pair it with slide sandals for a laidback look that is still super stylish.

Wedding Guest Dresses

We hear wedding bells!! If your calendar is jam-packed with weddings this summer, we’ve got you covered in the fashion department.

Dress to impress in this gorgeous lace dress!! Because while we all know it’s the bride’s day to shine, that doesn’t mean you can’t look great, too.

This tiered pastel dress is flattering for all body types and will have all eyes on you (while they aren’t on the happy couple, of course) as you shimmy and shake on the dance floor.

Classic black is always a sleek look and this puff-sleeve dress is no exception. The polka dot details and tie waist make it a more casual option, but throw on a pair of wedges and you’re set for a summer wedding!

We love a good plot twist and this piece is the best one yet! It’s actually romper but looks just like a dress…ummm yes please. The comfort and ease of shorts with the style of a dress make this romper perfect for an outdoor wedding.
