The Dreaming In Paradise Dress by Free People
is super busy, but somehow all the parts equal a fantastic whole. There is a sweetheart neckline, beading at the bodice, metal beads and crocheted banding at the empire waist, a peacock print skirt, smocked elastic back panel, hidden side zipper, and one inch straps that knot and cross at the open back. It is 31 inches long.

We like how the large flat beading at the scoop neck of the Racer Back Dress by Prairie New York
contrast with its color so well. This dress also has an empire waist, ruching at the waist and throughout the bodice, and is made of 100% modal. Available in two colors: orchid and twig.

We aren't normally a fan of shirt dresses, but the Shirt Dress by Rojas
is a classic that you'll be reaching for over all your other dresses. It has a V-neck, buttons down the front, self tie at the natural waist, and two pockets. It's also lined.

We like the combination of a casual bodice and fancier skirt on the Striped & Solid Jersey Ruched Dress at MaxStudio
. The bodice is striped with a V-neck and no sleeves, and there is ruching across the middle. It is 25 inches from the waist. Wear alone or over a long sleeved shirt for a few different looks.

The Cross Front Dress by Elizabeth and James
is an unusual but fun dress that you can wear well into the fall with a cute cardigan. It has a V-neck, straps that run through the neckline and cross in the front, pleating and a ruffle at the neck, seam detail at the waist, and an exposed zipper at the back. It is also 39 inches long.

It's time to start thinking about fall if you haven't already been. September will be here in a month! We're excited for the cooler weather coming when we see dresses like the Ribbed Cowlneck Sweater Dress at Banana Republic
. There is a ribbed cowl neck, dolman sleeves, and ribbling at the bottom hem. It's available in rublo taupe and grey heather as well as in petite sizes. It hangs at 32.5 inches long.
The Twill Solid Dress in Ocean by Graham & Spencer
is a pretty dress that can take you well into the fall with a cute cardigan. It has a ruffle at the neck, ruffle at the empire waist, twisted straps, a tie at the back, and a hidden back zipper. It is made of 100% solie.
The geometric pattern on the Braided Halter Dress in Chocolate by Rachel Pally
is extra fun because some squares look like they have mini fireworks taking off! This dress has ruching at the bodice, braided strap detail, ruching at the back, and unfinished, raw edges at the bottom hem. Also, contrary to its name, it is not a halter at the top.
