2. Fleur du Mal: Players Only Slip
A slip dress is the real MVP when it comes to vacation packing — it takes up almost no space, and can be dressed up or down. This Fleur du Mal silk charmeuse number comes in a custom cards and floral print, and while some slips can be a little shapeless, this one has a highly flattering bias cut which accentuates your curves.
3. Retrofête: Calypso Dress
This statement dress is the perfect cover up for a beach club in Mykonos or the South of France, or with a slip underneath you could wear it to a fun summer party. It features multi-colored beads on crochet, and will definitely make a statement wherever you go.
4. Juliet Dunn: Pink Baby Doll Dress with Tonal Ric Rac
A babydoll dress is an ideal outfit on a scorching day with its airy silhouette. This Juliet Dunn dress in white features the brand’s famous ric rac trim hemline. The fabric is 100 percent linen and holds up well on a hot day without creasing, which also makes it very suitcase-friendly.
5. FARM Rio: White Monstera Knot Midi Dress
This tropical dress is both casual and sexy, with skin-baring cutouts and a breezy fit. Even on a cloudy day the monstera print immediately says vacation, and with a set of heels you’re ready for a night on the town.
Take the popular skirt and top set look to the next level with this STAUD number which features hammered medallion coins at the hem of both the skirt and top. This look is practically begging for a shimmy on a dance floor in a popular beach locale this summer.
Show off your midriff with this summery floral print set. Made with 100 percent cotton, the flowy skirt is ideal for sightseeing on a hot day or having a glass of wine alfresco.
8. Mara Hoffman: Sloan Dress

Love a geometric print? Then this set is for you. Inspired by Western Mexico’s Cuixmala resort, this bandeau top and skirt is fun and flirty on a summer day.
