It’s summer dress season, but that doesn’t have to mean bad news for your bank account. Whether you are on a budget, or just prefer to be mindful about how many pieces you buy, investing in affordable dresses that can be worn and re-worn is the best way to update your wardrobe this summer.
If you love the look of a classic summer dress, Liu Jo’s floral off-shoulder number, Woolrich’s ruched dress in a saturated blue, and Muzungu Sisters’ in a quirky snail print are for you. Color-drenched pieces are also offered by Rotate, in soft lilac and with puff sleeves that will make for an ideal brunch look, and over at Remain Birger Christensen, the purple ribbed knit dress is perfect for a business lunch or dinner. Since you can’t go wrong with bright yellow this season, consider the breezy tiered creation by Gimahaus, which is fitting for entertaining at home, or if you prefer patterns, Pearl & Caviar’s bohemian-inspired piece and Kitri’s Dalmatian printed dress are worthy contenders. Heading to the beach? Solid & Striped’s mesh mini and Max Mara’s Cremona dress make for great cover-ups.
