Top Buys: Summer Dresses

At Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we recommend stocking your closet with one go-to piece: an upbeat-yet-unfussy summer dress.

While it probably seems like just yesterday you were musing over winter coats and woolen scarves, summer is well and truly here! Accordingly, with the arrival of warmer weather, a new fashion dilemma ensues: what to wear to beach barbecues, poolside parties, sunset cocktail hours and tropical getaways. At Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we recommend stocking your closet with one go-to piece: an upbeat-yet-unfussy summer dress.

Happily, brightly-colored summer dresses are on the radar of several fashion-forward brands; consequently, there is a whole world of vibrant options for you to choose from. If your personal style philosophy leans towards rocker-chic, don’t miss the pretty purple hues and edgy animal-print on T-Bags’s Zebra Trim Dress (#6). For those partial to a bohemian aesthetic, feast your eyes on Elan Internationals’s fluttery vintage-inspired tunic dress (#1). Or, if you prefer a bright injection of girly color, turn to Halston Heritage’s silky tangerine cocktail dress (#3).

No matter what style you opt for, there is a whole world of summer dresses to choose from. So, if your summer style credo calls for low-key yet lively dresses, we’re sure we have all the shopping inspiration you need. With that, we present you with Top Buys: Summer Dresses.
