I’m a Dress Snob—These 38 Are Pretty Enough to Pass My Test


Saying that I like to dress up would be the understatement of the year. Most days, I’m fully dressed (even when working from home, which I do most days) in heels and a dress, not to mention jewellery and accessories by 9 a.m. if not earlier. Because of that, my standards for dresses have become quite high, with comfort, style, versatility, and more all factoring into my buying decisions in the dress department. 

Of late, though, I’ve started to get bored of the dresses in my current rotation, leading me to look elsewhere for new styles to add to my repertoire. Many hours and what felt like 10,000 dresses later, I narrowed my search down to just 38 options. Keep scrolling to shop the summer dresses that have my extremely hard-to-secure stamp of approval.
