I love all this summer’s print dresses, but nobody wants to see themselves in the same print in every "event" picture of summer- or be that person pointed out in the back of someone’s wedding pictures a few years from now when minimalism is back, holding a cocktail in a giant goofy flowered trapeze dress.
Here’s a few dresses that will hold their own through a day wedding, a baby shower- whatever you’re up against. Each is long enough to keep your dignity on the dance floor and has a neckline that won’t have the bride giving you the stink eye. Click the title of the post for the listed brands and locations.
