When I take a summer vacation, my Away suitcase is about 90% dresses. Daytime dresses, beach dresses, dresses for dinners out, travel-day dresses… You name it. Dresses take up minimal room and are particularly photogenic, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a great one, which I’m happy to prove.
Similar to, say, a wedding guest dress or a work dress, you probably know a vacation dress when you see one. Think breezy, tropical, colorful, and fun. It should also be comfortable because no one wants to be anything but that on vacation. I looked through the offerings of some of my favorite brands for pieces to accompany you on your upcoming vacation (or staycation!). All you need is a pair of sneakers, sandals, or heels if you’re feeling fancy and a tropic drink, of course. Scroll on for the 33 vacation-worthy dresses you simply must see.
