24 Dreamy Dresses for Your Most Romantic Summer Yet

Dress season is upon us, and there are plenty of chic styles to suit every sartorial taste, from trending minis to of-the-moment backless dresses. Today, however, we're focusing on the most romantic of the lot: milkmaid dresses. You know what I'm talking about. Think puff sleeves, slender bodices, sweetheart and square necklines, a little ruffle, basically what cottagecore dreams are made of.

Whether you're frolicking in the countryside this summer (milking cows and baking bread) or sipping on cocktails on a rooftop in the city, the ultra-feminine, soft, and ethereal dress will make you feel your most romantic self—like you belong in a Jean-Baptiste Huet painting.
