The right dress has the ability to make you feel immensely glamorous, breezy, and perfect in a matter of seconds (or however long it takes you to put it on). But different occasions call for different ratios of flirt vs. minimal, bright vs. simple, and don't even get me started on the connotations behind different hemlines. Below are five picks for the various warm-weather, oh-do-I-accidentally-look-amazing situations you find yourself in as the temperatures rise. Personally, I need the dual-toned maxi like I need oxygen, and nothing beats lace for adding romance. The white open-shouldered Amador dress is ideal for a daytime jaunt, and the secret garden dress will have everyone staring. Plus, when it's warmer we get to call dresses 'frocks', yet another reason to stock up now.
