When you feel like wearing your favorite LBD...but crave a splash of color. This makes a pretty choice, with its flutter sleeve and asymmetrical below-the-knee hemline. A dress you'll no doubt wear again and again. Sizes 2 to 16. Buy from Nordstrom.
Stretchy material and pleats give this A-line dress a comfortable fit. The dramatic flash of print elevates it, and makes it a standout that you could easily take from day to night. Midi length on a model; it may hit closer to ankle length on more petite women, and that looks great too. Sizes 0 to 14. Buy from Bergdorf Goodman.
Plum is a great color for a wedding. It conveys opulence, yet blends in well with pinks, blues, and other wedding party colors. We adore the ruffled sleeve on this lovely day dress. Likely to hit best on smaller chested ladies, but worth a shot. Sizes 0 to 14. Buy from Bergdorf Goodman.
A great dress for work events that could easily swing more dressy. Just swap the boots for heels. The cinched waist makes it a flattering choice for those with curves and we sure do love a keyhole skin peek. Plus: pockets! Green and gold are so sharp together—from summer right into fall. Sizes 2 to 10. Buy from Bergdorf Goodman.
Well if it's good enough for recent mother of the bride Andie MacDowell, sign us up, too! This tropical gem is perfect for a beachy or destination event. The silk chiffon maxi with balloon sleeves offers full coverage without weighed you down. The keyhole cutout is a fun, subtle wink and we love the addition of the organza flower tie at the waist combined with the cool print. Pairs well with strappy heels, or flat sandals, as MacDowell chose. Sizes XS to XL. Buy from Verishop.
Destination wedding coming up? This is a breezy chic option that punches above its price tag, and comes in petite sizes, too. 00 to 18. Buy from White House Black Market.
A dress that says you're a standout, but you don't need to scream about it. We love the vibrant hue, and the scalloped lace. It's delicate, yet strong; Intricate, yet affordable. Sizes XXS to XL (which translates to 0 to 20). Buy from Lilly Pulitzer.
Subtle and sophisticated. Made of jersey knit this midi-length dress accentuates your curves with the benefit of sharp draping. We love the puff sleeve and the gold hue, which feels elevated but won't clash with the bridal party. You're sure to wear this one again and again. Sizes 2 to 16. Buy from Anthropologie.
A dress you could take from day to night—and will definitely find occasion to wear again and again. The bold color blocking is balanced by simple chid cut. We love the two-tone adjustable kimono-style belt and the way the skirt screams for a twirl. Plus, it's different from every angle. Sizes 2 to 12. Buy from The Fold London.
What a beauty! We love a versatile number that wouldn't look overdone for a daytime occasion but could easily fit right in at an evening cocktail event. It's the asymmetrical neckline, all over pleating, and soft floral print that really step up this style. Sizes 0 to 18. Buy from Bloomingdale's.
An A-line halter dress is always in style and this vibrant print is a fun choice, especially for an outdoor event. Sizes 00 to 12. Buy from Saks Fifth Avenue.
We love this evolution of the flutter sleeve into two panels on the one dramatic shoulder. Body skimming silhouette; tasteful length—perfect for day, or cocktail. Comes in several vibrant colors, but we're partial to pink. Sizes XXS to XXL (which is 00 to 16). Buy from Nordstrom.
