Everyone needs one easy neutral dress that you can throw on without thinking.
So light and airy, from the cutouts at the neckline to the oversize armholes.
FOREVER 21, $32.80,
Think of it as a tube dress with benefits (e.g., a sexy one-shoulder strap).
If you are going for charming, a little floral sundress always does the trick.
FOREVER 21, $19.80,
A playful short option made even better by the addition of handy pockets.
A standout, from the diagonal tiers to the citrusy color.
NEW YORK & COMPANY, $9.99,
Super-easy to wear and very forgiving after a big lunch.
It looks like a one-of-a-kind: The blurry floral print could almost be hand-dyed, and the corset top is carefully constructed.
A unique lattice detail at the top catches every eye in the room.
RACHEL RACHEL ROY, $52.49,
Just the sweetest pattern of allover bows.
Cute without being cutesy.
FRENCH CONNECTION, $59.99,
The juxtaposition of the stripes helps to flatter the figure by breaking up a routine pattern in an interesting way.
ANN TAYLOR, $98,
Upon closer inspection, the geometric watercolor print is a modern take on the classic chevron stripe.
BANANA REPUBLIC, $89.99,
Casually draped, this pretty floral option would be so cool with a pair of menswear-inspired flats.
KIMCHI BLUE, $78,
Like a piece of modern art transformed into a dress.
FRED FLARE, $64,
The oversize-flower print conjures a '50s housewife dress—in the best way.
BB DAKOTA, $88,
What we love about this sweet seersucker dress is that the black trim at the neckline makes it just a little bit more elegant.
ANNIE HAVLICEK, $136.80,
Even with a pair of flip-flops this dress would still be super-sexy.
It's easy to get scared off by the brightness of the cranberry, but it actually flatters all skin tones.
A dazzling jeweled collar eliminates the need for a necklace.
FREE PEOPLE, $118,
Exaggerated puff sleeves balance a body-conscious silhouette.
T-LOS ANGELES, $114,
An oversize ruffle adds drama to an already bold style.
Against the dark taupe, a bright yellow confetti-like print is completely eye-catching.
DOLCE VITA, $124,
In an ethereal blue, this silk strapless dress is just so pretty.
ANN TAYLOR, $129.99,
The oversize bow neck is sweet; the hemline is outrageously sexy.
TED BAKER, $166.77,
If you look closely, you can see the cool—and totally unexpected—python print.
The sash on the left gives a dose of sass to a (very) little strapless number.
TWELFTH STREET. BY CYNTHIA VINCENT, $161.50,
What we imagine a cute French girl on a bike would wear.
An elastic waistband makes the blousy chiffon dress that much more flattering.
ELIZABETH AND JAMES, $189,
Date night 101: Look for a sheer overlay with whimsical flutter sleeves.
