  • Ark & Co. Color Block Dress


    Sleeves still work in the summertime, as long as you keep them light and airy like on this bright dress from Ark & Co. Color block panels add oodles of interest, and while the front is demure, the back is open to the waist.

  • Kelly Dress


    Be kind to your bridesmaids and dress them in something cool and simple for your summer wedding. We love this formal take on a maxi dress, which is fancied up with flowy, chic chiffon and a ribbon belt. This might be the one bridesmaid dress they will actually wear again.

  • Freja Dress


    Sometimes a dress does not have to be fancy or party-ready. We love the casual ease of the Freja dress by Market; as easy as sweats but infinitely cuter. Super-soft, heathered jersey will make you feel like you’re wearing your favorite pajamas. Layer over leggings or throw a belt on to mix up your look.

    The cool, retro cut of this dress by Hitherto isn’t even the most interesting aspect of it- hello, color! The bold kelly green will set you apart from the pack of LBD’s in the best possible way. Look out- there is also a sly cut-out back.
