When it comes to curating the perfect off-duty closet for summer, casual off the shoulder dresses are a must-have. Firstly, they’ll have you looking and feeling instantly put together and ready to head out the door in minutes. Secondly, they’ll keep you feeling cool, and yet still stylish, even when temperatures soar. With that in mind, we just had to add the Palmer off-the-shoulder floral-print mini dress by Caroline Constas to our lineup. As perfect for beach days as it is for weekend brunch or low-key drinks, this dress will be a go-to the moment you add it to your closet. Additionally, the pink, yellow, and green floral print against the vibrant red background is made for summer days!


Meanwhile, the printed cotton-blend maxi dress by Etro is the perfect early-evening dress for casual dinner plans. Firstly, it boasts the most beautiful black colorway punctuated with mixed multi-colored prints. Secondly, the ankle-length skirt means it’ll look just as elegant with flat sandals as it will with heeled ones. Therefore, you can dress this dress up or down as needed to match the dress code! Our advice? Opt for gold shoes and accessories to elevate the contrasting floral and paisley prints!
