Those admiring the off-the-shoulder element of this Leila Lopes Dress, we have you covered. The Wethersfield floral poplin maxi dress by Cara Cara makes an unforgettable statement and will quickly become a favorite within your summer lineup. Additionally, you’ll adore its romantic, dropped puff sleeves and all-over blue floral print as much as its cascading tiered skirt. Wear this dress with sandals for summer garden parties or even barefoot to a wedding on the beach.
If you prefer subtler prints, choose the Atlanta off-the-shoulder midi by Sleeper. This dress simply slips on and looks instantly beautiful. Wear it off the shoulders for an eternally romantic summer look, or on the shoulders with sneakers for spring. Either way, you’re certain to turn heads and feel beautiful in this perfect smocked linen design.
One of the many reasons we love this Leila Lopes dress so much is its stunning shade of sky blue. Thankfully, our favorite designers are smitten too. Therefore, there are plenty of similarly colored dresses to choose from this season! The tulle-trimmed silk-taffeta gown by Monique Lhuillier is, in our opinion, a must-have. Its plunge V-back and neckline, flattering banded waist, and voluminous mid-length skirt are right out of a fairytale. Without a doubt, you’ll be the talk of any summer event your wear this unforgettable gown to.
Another particularly stunning design on our list is the Emi dress from Preen By Thornton Bregazzi. Its chic high neckline and gathered waist are a match made in heaven. Meanwhile, the real drama and beauty come, of course, from the addition of its voluminous, tiered ruffle detailing decorating the front and back of the dress. Wear the Emi dress with flats for an effortlessly chic, designer off-duty look this summer.
