When it comes to summer dresses, there are endless options out there. But if your summer calendar is as jam-packed as mine, and you take event dressing seriously, then you know that not any old dress will do. This summer is my busiest yet, filled with rooftop events, weekends away, dinners, parties, and trips. Of course, the first thing I thought of while watching my calendar fill up was, "What am I going to wear?" This summer, I plan to step up my warm-weather wardrobe and be extra intentional about what I wear.

Naturally, I rolled up my sleeves for the deep dive of the century and turned to the retailers I trust most. After hours of digging through pages and pages of summer dresses, I found 30 I couldn't stop thinking about. From the perfect little black Reformation dress to H&M dresses that took my breath away to bold dresses in the new Simon Miller and Mango collab, there's something for every event on your calendar here. Keep scrolling to take a peek at my ultimate summer dress list. You're going to love these options as much as I do.
