Summer can be uncomfortably sweltering, but there's a bright spot through all that heat—it essentially gives you carte blanche to wear as little as possible. And the next best thing to be being au naturel is going for a daring dress. Think cutouts, short hemlines, sheer fabrics, and ultra-thin straps. Although modesty is front row and center in the form of sartorial niches like the "old money" and "quiet luxury," a few of its most prominent figures still know when to pull out a sultry dress. Take model Elsa Hosk, for example. She recently dropped a collection of seductive summer dresses with midriff cutouts and see-through fabric. The gowns border the risqué, and they're all I've been thinking about.
But even if you haven't been able to completely gel with the risqué trends peaking this season, the summer is as good as ever to pull out all the stops. Ranging from minidresses to body-hugging silhouettes, the below dresses do just that. Keep scrolling for 34 pieces guaranteed to make an entrance.
