  • Birdy Grey

    Birdy Grey Midi Wrap Dress

    $99

    We love the flattering line of a wrap and the ruffled high low hemline gives this satin dress an extra flair. Comes in a bunch of colors and sizes XS to 3X. (Bra cups not included, but at this price, if the fit is right, it would be worth taking to a tailor to add!). Buy from Birdy Grey.

  • Reformation

    Reformation Floral Wrap Maxi Dress

    $328

    Easy breezy elegance is our jam. The tie waist on the "Winslow" maxi dress is adjustable. The sleeve is chic and flattering.

  • JJ's House

    JJ's House Empire Knee Length Chiffon Dress

    $151

    All eyes up! This style deftly keeps the focus on that pretty beaded illusion scoop neckline while avoiding a defined waist. Empire can easily slip into babydoll territory, which looks young, but this cut makes it chic and sophisticated. The knee skimming length makes it a good option for petites as well. Available in dozens of colors. Sizes 0 to 26. Buy from JJ's House.
