Before you know it, it’ll be spring, which is why our eyes are gravitating toward dresses lately. (Plus, it makes shopping a vacay of sorts when you’re actually facing a freezing forecast!) Dresses are feminine by nature, so when we’re looking for one to wear in the warmer months, we choose fun, playful and, well, sexy, but not in an obvious way. We’re talking maxis with slits, fitted vintage-inspired minis, romantic off-the-shoulder midis—all with strategic details that ensure a wow factor. Ahead, discover the brands we count on for chic, flirty numbers.
