Summer days are practically screaming out for dresses and there’s no better item for the money in my book than the selection right this minute at Banana Republic. Mixing high style with incredible wearability, Creative Director Simon Kneen has truly outdone himself, creating a collection of gorgeous dresses (I own at least three of the items shown below) that work in your wardrobe for everything from casual Friday to garden parties to evening strolling the shore.

As a recent convert to the power of simply slipping on a dress and you’re done (a novel concept, I know) I am obsessed with Kneen’s powerfully pretty creations. He’s actually gotten me to wear a maxi dress, no small feat in this day and age for someone who previously never thought they “worked for me.” In Banana Republic’s hands, they do.

The holiday weekend is fast approaching and so is every fabulous champagne celebration you’re craving (not to mention the non-stop wedding schedule most of us are experiencing.) You’re going to need something fabulous and filmy that will look gorgeous now and later, so get these dresses before they’re all gone. A small side note: with proper layering, you can wear these well into the fall. Invest! Get thee to a Banana Republic and grab them before they’re all gone!
