The One to Buy in Multiples
The One for Caftan Lovers
It’s as loose as your favorite billowy dress, but feels nice enough to wear to the office.
The Classic Summer Option
You can’t go wrong with preppy blue stripes worn with simple low sandals.
The One You Can Also Wear to the Beach
Throw it over a bathing suit and it doubles as a cover-up.
If You Don’t Like Tying Things Around Your Waist
If You’re a Fan of Avant-Garde Design
If You’re Super Excited About Warm Weather
If You Love Delicate, Pretty Things
This printed number with its soft layers of ruffles fit the bill. But if you want to give it some contrast, try a pair of ugly sandals.
When You’re Sick of Black
If You’re Petite
When You Want a Little Flair
If You Work in a Conservative Office
If You Like a Designer Deal
Don’t you love it when spring clothes are already on sale? The weather’s just right to buy and wear this fun mixed-print dress immediately.
If You Have an Interview for a Creative Gig
For the Minimalist
The Instagram-Friendly One
You might have seen Rixo all over your Instagram Explore page — it’s a brand that’s super popular with influencers. They make cheerful, pretty dresses that you can wear as-is, but if you’re looking to experiment with creative styling, try one unbuttoned over jeans.
If You Love Dark Florals
This is one of the pricier options on our list, but it’s also one of the most versatile. The pretty floral print can go from the office to a night out, and even carry you through wedding season.
