21 Perfect Dresses to Wear This Summer

It’s already mid-May, which means summer is nearly upon us, and before we know it the weather is going to start heating up. To help prepare you for the seasonal change, Yahoo Style rounded up 21 picture-perfect dresses that can take you through the summer.

For the second season in a row, the ubiquitous off-the-shoulder silhouette is still going strong, ever since Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, the designer duo behind hit New York-based brand Monse, created their famous asymmetrical blouses and dresses two years ago. Whether you prefer wrap dresses, maxi dresses, or mini dresses, we have all of them in a plethora of colors and prints — from gingham and striped to florals.

Click ahead to shop all 21 dresses. We’re certain you’ll find one that suits your taste.
