  • 1 of 49

  • 2 of 49

    Destination: Napa Valley
    A weekend soaking in sweeping vineyard landscapes, world-renowned wines, and your closest friends sounds like the perfect excuse to indulge in a new flowy frock if you ask us. Scroll through for a stylish assortment of lace, chiffon, florals, and of course, white!

  • 3 of 49

    For The Bride:
    ​Mango Guipure Dress ($100)

    ​Long-sleeve lace is flattering and feminine. Wear this delicate mini-dress with ballet flats and a low ponytail for a subtle bridal vibe.

  • 4 of 49

    Vanessa Bruno Athe Lace Dress ($528)

    ​This dainty dress makes us want to frolic in the sunshine, wine glass and best friends in hand.

  • 5 of 49

    Tibi Ultra Matte Poplin Combo Dress ($398)

    ​The mid-calf length on this sheer sundress calls for wooden wedges or platform sandals. Soft pink lipstick wouldn’t hurt, either!

  • 6 of 49

    For The Girls:
    ​French Connection Blue Ash Denim Dress ($198)

    ​Chambray in a girly dress silhouette, paired with a mini-bag and sandals is a go-to winetasting uniform.

  • 7 of 49

    Surface To Air B Dress ($420)

    ​Just imagine how perfect this tropical-print dress will look with a straw hat and slip-on sandals!

  • 8 of 49

    NO. 6 Button Back Dress ($365)

    ​Opt for a longer dress in a calming hue if you’re going for a more revealing neckline!

  • 9 of 49

    Reformation Kenya Dress ($218)

    ​Not only is this the perfect dress silhouette for wine tasting, you’ll also wear it all summer long!

  • 10 of 49

    Destination: Palm Springs
    When the bachelorette weekend invite says Palm Springs, you can expect three things: scorching temps, plenty of poolside lounging, and a relaxed nightlife scene. Decidedly more low-key than a Vegas getaway, yet more polished than your tropical adventure, the Palm Springs dress code consists of breezy maxi and mini dresses in a spirited color palette of pinks, yellows, greens, and blues.

  • 11 of 49

    For The Bride:
    Tibi Kat Eyelet Strapless Dress ($445)

    This is how the Palm Springs bride does sexy: a strapless silhouette and semi sheer eyelet skirt. 

  • 12 of 49

    Zara Maxi Dress with Fine Straps ($100)

    This flowy number reminds us of Cara Delevingne’s Chanel bridesmaid dress—swoon!—and would be simply stunning with a braided ‘updo. 

  • 13 of 49

    Rachel Zoe Baxter Fit & Flare Dress ($250)

    A flirty fit-and-flare dress is perfect for showing of your killer legs and an equally awesome pair of heels.

    Mara Hoffman Pleat Front Shift Dress ($264)

    For show-stopping results, style this vibrant shift dress with an armful of color bracelets. 

  • 15 of 49

    Tory Burch Emilia Dress ($450)

    Pair this eye-catching dress with barely-there sandals while perusing the local shops downtown. 

  • 16 of 49

    Oasis Chain Neck Maxi Dress ($133)

    An ankle-grazing frock in a cheery hue is perfect for sunset cocktails by the pool. 

  • 17 of 49

    Trina Turk Kaitlyn Crepe Sleeveless Jumpsuit ($378)

    Switch it up, and try a fitted one-piece—in a subtle color, like black, so as not to take away from the bride—accessorized with a statement clutch. 

  • 18 of 49

    Destination: Tropical Getaway
    If your bachelorette party invite says Mexico, Miami, or anywhere else that would require SPF 100+, this next roundup of easy, breezy dresses is for you!  Whether you opt for a mini, midi, or maxi dress, you’ll want to be in something lightweight, that goes with flats AND heels, so that nothing holds you back while enjoying mojitos and margaritas with your girls at the poolside bar!

    The high neck on this Reformation dress balances out the beautiful, low cut back. 

  • 24 of 49

    Treat this simple pink dress like a blank canvas for all of your favorite summer accessories! 

  • 25 of 49

    See By Chloé Cutout Striped Cotton Dress ($395)

    This lightweight midi is great to wear by the beach with flats, or style with platforms for a more dressed-up look. 

  • 26 of 49

    Destination: New Orleans 
    The Big Easy is the South’s consummate bachelorette weekend destination. In addition to cool gin fizzes and hot jazz, the sweltering city calls for barely-there clothes that still look chic, of course. Our suggestion? Take your style cues from this romantic, historical city with feminine details and colorful floral prints.

    The modern floral print and sheer black detail on this fun dress guarantee a great night out in the Crescent City. 

  • 32 of 49
