Where to Buy Summer Dresses: Fail-Safe Brands to Pad Your Closet

New, 5 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome back to Editor's Essentials, a new Wednesday feature in which editors from around the Racked network discuss their all-time best buys.

On a recent shoot at the Hukkster HQ for our weekly office style series, a staffer proclaimed, "Summer dresses are my low-cost binge. Is it possible to have too many? They're the bodega egg-and-cheese-on-a-roll of summer retail: cheap, satisfying, too many out there to see them all, but you're welcome to try."

With that perfectly pitched sentiment as a spring board, we present to you our editors' all-time favorite resources for summer dresses. The mall brands that get the job done, the boutiques that stock the coolest lines, and more than one Aussie label to know, all after the jump.
