As the days lengthen and summer temperatures begin to soar, you want a dress that’s effortless, keeps you cool and is versatile enough to wear in different fashion situations, from the office to vacation trips to weekend brunches. To find the best deals and selection, it’s hard to beat the convenience of Amazon, which explains why fashion stylists often rely on the retail giant for items that ship out quickly (solving any last-minute wardrobe needs), culled from a mix of affordable brands as well as designer labels. The trick, of course, is sorting through all the styles to find the most flattering and well-made pieces for your money. Here, we enlisted three experts for the absolute best dresses on Amazon to put in your cart.
When shopping, you’ll want to consider the length—maxi, midi or mini—but also the fabrication. Fashion stylist Caitlin Burke offers this pro tip: “Material is the most important factor,” she says. “I love the look of a silk slip dress, but as soon as you sweat it will show. It’s better to opt for light cotton poplin or linen dress to stay dry.” Also consider the dress shape. “Silhouettes that float away from the body keep you cool,” she says. Ahead, we enlisted three experts—including Burke; luxury fashion and travel consultant Ashley Olano; and wedding and event planner Victoria Lartey-Williams—to find 13 of the best dresses on Amazon. Here are their top recommendations.
