"I'll be at the beach for most of the summer — so having a dress I can wear to and from the water all day and to dinner later is an elusive find. So, how lucky was I to find this fringed version of a kaftan with just a tinge more flare than a traditional beach coverup?" — Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR
"This perfect red dress makes me feel both like an unstoppable vixen and a comfortable cutie. The extra deep neckline is sexy even for small-chested gals and the midi length isn't too ladylike — it's just pure summer fun." —Hannah Baxter, deputy beauty editor, TZR

The Talavera Tube Dress
“I got this dress over the pandemic and have just been able to put it to use in recent months. Already, it's soared to the top of my favorites list. While fitted throughout, the stretchy, seersucker fabric makes it incredibly comfortable. A summertime must!” — Angela Melero, executive editor

“An easy dress is key to my summer uniform, so this bright, lightweight design is at the top of my wishlist. I plan to style it with a bold sneaker for day and strappy heels for night, and open as a tunic over a tank top and shorts.” — Copelyn Bengel, associate fashion market editor, BDG

"I love Silk Laundry's slip dresses because they look/feel elegant, and are so comfortable. I own five slips and have convinced countless friends to invest in one too. They're also easily washable by hand or on the gentle cycle." — Marina Liao, senior fashion news editor

The Amber
"This summer, I'm hoping to dip my toes into the sheer trend by purchasing this semi-see-through maxi. I love how the playful zebra stripes give a little bit of extra coverage — so I won't be baring it all on my first go at the style." — Jordan Goldberg, fashion news writer

Vallarta Dress
“Merlette is masterful at making the kind of floaty cut, airy fabric dresses you wear when 99% of your wardrobe feels too heavy. The New Yorker in me, of course, loves the black version but it also comes in a crisp and equally chic white.” - Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

Handkerchief-Hem Dress
“I’m known for wearing neutrals all year round, but this summer I’m trying to change that. I’m obsessed with the v-neck and low back combination of this flowy pink design — it’s giving summer elegance and I’m so here for it.” — Meguire Hennes, lifestyle intern, BDG

"This versatile piece goes from sweaty summer days straight into summer nights. It can be dressed down with sneakers but makes a quick turnaround to feel elevated with strappy sandal heels. Bonus: The burnt orange hue transitions right into fall." — Rebecca Iloulian, director of newsletters & marketing, BDG

"When I want to look ultra sleek and put together I reach for something figure-hugging in a sleek color with a luxe detail.” — Annie Blay, associate beauty news editor, TZR

Brynlee Knit Dress
“When I saw this brown cut-out number, I immediately clicked ‘add to cart.’ Paired with lace-up sandals (for day) or simple block heels (at night), it’s the perfect piece to stay cool in — pun intended — all summer long.” — Ariel Bielsky, fashion bookings & production manager

“My personal style can be summed up in three words: girly-grunge clash. This white midi is the perfect garment to tap into that 'girly' aspect because it exudes an easy-breezy, feminine feel. As for the ‘grunge’? Leather sandals will do the trick.” — Emma Childs, fashion writer
