This year, more and more trendsetters are getting into “maximalism,” an aesthetic where practically anything goes. Whether you want to play around with different silhouettes, colorful dresses, or bold patterns, all are welcome as part of the anti-minimalism fashion movement. Now, that’s not to say your whole wardrobe has to turn upside down, but exploring your personal style — and experimenting with more kitschy looks — can be fun.

Celebrities like Blake Lively (see: her Atelier Versace rainbow gown at a recent movie premiere) and Anne Hathaway (re: her multihued polka-dotted three-piece suit on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) as well as TikTok influencers like Anna O’Brien of @glitterandlazers have already embraced the super-saturated, joy-sparking trend. And summer is the ideal time for you to delve into a more vibrant closet, too.

Personally, I’m not afraid to experiment with color and style, and this rainbow-hued trend couldn’t come at a better time in the midst of Pride Month. And since they’re available in a wide variety of styles, colorful dresses are a great way to dive way into the graphic aesthetic.

Channel your playful side with this colorful midi-length dress from Raquel Allegra.

(The long sleeves make it versatile enough to wear in the spring and fall, too.)

Slip into this ‘90s-inspired silk slip with an all-over pastel marble pattern. Find a mix of light greens, blues, and purples that seamlessly blend together for a one-of-a-kind garment. The shoulder straps are also adjustable, ensuring the perfect fit.

For chilly seaside nights this summer, reach for this form-fitting knit dress that features a bright color-blocking pattern. The button-up closure allows for some versatility, too, giving you the option to wear it as both a sweater dress or an open long cardigan.

Get groovy with this colorful midi-length dress and its psychedelic purple and blue pattern. With the hem hitting just below the knees, the frock can be dressed up or down by pairing it with either your go-to pumps or white weekend-ready sneakers.

Whether you’re planning on hitting the beach in Miami or simply heading to brunch, this colorful striped dress will fit the bill. Its stretchy viscose/rayon blend is great for those steamy summer days when you don’t want to feel constricted in your clothing, as is its sleeveless neckline.

Take a cue from the sun’s rays with this bright yellow frock. With its cut-out slit at the waist, the dress is subtly sultry, allowing you to show off a peekaboo hint of skin. Pair with open-toed white mules for a look that just screams summer.

Highlight your life with this bold and graphic lime green dress. The polo collar and fitted silhouette lend it a more business-casual vibe, making it ideal for all those work lunches on your calendar. The stretchy fabric makes it pretty comfy, too.
