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.

Shopbop’s big summer sale started yesterday, and there’s still a ton of stuff marked down. The TL;DR: All sale merchandise is an extra 25% off, which brings the steepest discount all the way up to 70% off. It’s the sole reason no Racked editor has done any actual work in the past 45 minutes.

To justify that, here’s a list of some of the best things to buy right now. Because there’s so much, we’ve zeroed in on the dresses. Below, 20 of our favorite picks that are perfect for summer weddings, days at the beach, and anything else you might choose to do in the warm weather.
