23 Stunning Summer Party Dresses You’ll Want To Wear All Night

From sleeveless picks to long sleeves, we’re going for captivating crossed with comfy.
Six to Sunday

Summertime, the season of sunblock and three-day weekends is also the season of fun fêtes.

Do you have a special occasion coming up? Wedding? Graduation? Reunion? A just ‘cause?

With so many great options on the market, there’s no better reason to buy yourself a great party dress—something that’s fun and that fits and flatters your shape in a pretty print, a bold color, or always chic black.

This time of year, resist the temptation to pair your look with black or brown accessories and instead opt for nude accents or, our fave, any of the metallics (silver, gold, bronze) for a bit of shine. Wear with delicate flats or strappy sandals and a raffia bag that’s just big enough for the essentials.

Here’s to life’s sweet celebrations. Cheers!
