The '80s Cocktail Dress by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent
is what you would expect, a dress that your mom could have worn too. But it luckily doesn't have some of those 80s features that shouldn't ever come back, like extra large shoulder pads! This dress has a jacquard croc pattern at the skirt, one inch banding and ruching at the waist, a single button, hidden zipper, and gathered elastic banding at the split back, and short dolman sleeves. It is extra short at 31 inches and is 100% silk.

The Trapeze Dress by Thayer
is simple, but it doesn't need lots of embellishments to look fabulous. This dress has a V-neck, rounded bottom hem, vertical front and back seams, and long spaghetti straps that tie at the shoulders. It is semi-sheer, 32 inches long, and 100% silk. We adore the yellow color too, which is perfect for summer.

Like the idea of jumpers, but don't love the reality? The Cross Back Jumper Dress by L.A.M.B.
is a cute alternative. It has a leather drawstring at the drop waist, ruching at the bust and back, vertical front and back seams, twisted balloon bottom hem, and buckles and leather tabs at the adjustable suspender straps. It is double layered and is 31 inches long.

In the market for another little black dress? We think the Ruched Sleeveless Dress by Helmut Lang
fits the bill nicely. This cowl neck dress has a cutout back, ruching at the sides, smocked elastic insets at the shoulders, and a hidden side zipper. It is 32 inches long, lined, and it can be worn on or off the shoulder.

We like how Juicy Couture has taken a classic staple and changed it around a bit. We think it'd be the perfect dress for going out to eat after a long day at the beach this summer. The Terry Smocked Asymmetrical Dress
is a terry dress with a smocked elastic bodice and ruffle trim at the top hem and the one shoulder strap. It is 32 inches long and available in three colors: vivid, white, and lemon.

The floral print at the skirt of the Denim Floral Corset Dress by Kettle Black
takes an edgy dress and eases it up in a nice way. There is a corset denim bodice, sweetheart neckline, vertical seam detail at the bust, ruching at the waist, gathered elastic strpa, gathered elastic inset, and boning at the cutout back, and a hidden hook-and-eye closure and zipper at the back. It is 22 inches long and lined at the bodice.
The swirl pattern on the Decoupage Dress by Vena Cava
is what caught our eye. There is a sweetheart neckline, ruching at the waist, smocked elastic banding at the back, and solid silk shoulder straps that tie at the scoop back. It is 32 inches long, lined, and made from a cotton and silk blend.

Many tops with different straps can look confusing and just wrong, but that isn't the case with the Ariel Mini Dress by Black Halo
. This dress has an asymmetrical ruffle at the top hem and left strap that is interesting and pretty. There is also pleating at the bus, boning at the bodice, banding at the waist, a hidden back zipper, and thick straps that form a V at the neck. It is 32 inches long and lined.
