While we may have already started talking about fall here at Who What Wear, I’m certainly in no rush to cast aside summer. I’m still enjoying the long weekend days by the pool and reveling in the warm summer evenings—Aperol spritz in hand.
Luckily here in L.A., we’ve got plenty more months of warm weather ahead. With a couple of summer weekend getaways booked and a number of events in the Google Cal, I’ve been craving a handful of chic dresses to get me through this season and into the next.
So this week, I headed to some of my favorite retailers IRL—Reformation, Zara, and H&M (all known for their chic selections of dresses)—to seek out cool frocks that will see me through laid-back summer weekends, an upcoming vacation, and a bridal shower, which are all taking place in the next few months. I also sought out dresses that will take me easily into fall with the addition of layers.
I tried on a plethora of dresses (21 to be exact), but these 11 made the final cut, from little white dresses to sleek slip dresses. Scroll below if you’re looking for inspiration.
