article2_summer-dresses.jpgFuss-free and fabulous, dresses are a staple of summerwear for women the world over. Nothing taps into our inner goddesses as easily as a flattering frock—which is why, since time immemorial, we’ve revered The Dress as a star in its own right.

Are you ready for the barrage of sundresses coming your way? Brace yourself, because this year’s It-frocks are steering clear of safe solids. Print—and lots of it—is the name of the game. Traditional patterns like spots and stripes are joined by more energetic fare, like super-sized florals and sexy tribal—and we’re loving it all!

Below, find five fresh frocks to get you through the summer. Each comes in a different print and silhouette, so you can choose the one that suits you best. And they’re versatile too—click through the gallery and see how you can wear them for the office, a party, and or a lazy weekend hangout.
