There's so many to choose from! But we recommend you start by shopping our list below, and then dust off your sandals! The sun's coming, and it's time to get ready...

Spring 2020 Denim You Need

Ruffle-Sleeve Button-Front Dress

Tone on tone floral gets its moment int this beautiful longline dress, with romantic and feminine sheer ruffled sleeves for a little added softness. There's even a little hardware, with gold vintage-like buttons. Wear it with heels, or belt it and pair it with boots.

Sheer Plaid Full-Sleeve Ruffle Dress

With little at the chest, a little at the wrist and a little at the knee, there's a lot of style happening in this ruffled dress. But while the ruffles may draw you in, it's the chic plaid print that make it worth the investment as a solid transition piece for your wardrobe.

Plus Black Floral Twist Front Maxi Dress

Chic? Yes. Stylish? You betcha. Jaw-droppingly bold? Undeniably so! While a split front shows off your legs and a bold floral print on a black backdrop highlights the rest of your body, a twist-front detail accents your waist, and brings the whole thing together.

Helena Maxi Dress

Talk about drama! With a long, full sleeve that caps in a high-fashion cuff, a tiered voluminous body that adds to its allure, and the addition of a chain and faux leather belt to choose how you want to accent your waist, you'll definitely make an entrance in this dress.

Graphic Heart Maxi Dress

There's so much going on with this dress, and we love it all: the deep V neck, the robe collar, the loose front pleats, the mega eye-catching print... we dare you to put on this dress and attempt to be a wallflower. It's just not possible.

Graphic Cashew Maxi Dress

Imagine taking this dress on vacation, where you could wear it barefoot on the beach, or dress it up with a cute pair of heeled sandals. Or maybe you wear it at home, with chic boots until the weather warms up. Our point is, it's versatile, and stunning, and your wardrobe will thank you for adding it to your repertoire. 

Eco-Jersey Side Slit Maxi Tank Dress

This is one of those kinds of dresses that could work as a lounge-around-the-house dress, or a comfy-running-errands dress. But be forewarned: you won't want to take it off, because it's so sumptuously soft thanks to fabric made from organic and recycled materials.

Alisha Tiered Maxi Dress

We don't know if it's the bold red color, the tiered silhouette, the puffed sleeves or the contrasting white buttons, but everything about this dress makes us love it... particularly its easygoing style that could fits in from brunches to banquets. 

V-Neck Jersey Maxi Dress

Dressy, but make it comfy... and vice versa! Get it all in this dress, with a low V neck and empire waist made of soft, supple jersey fabric. Whether you wear it out on the town, or just around the house, you'll look stylish but cozy everywhere you go.

Rochelle Eyelet Maxi Dress

Available in standard, petite and plus sizes, this adorable eyelet dress is delightfully romantic while being breezy. It's cotton with a little spandex for a smidge of give, and there's some embroidery to add to its sweet visual style.

INC Leopard-Print Faux-Wrap Maxi Dress

The ultimate grab-and-go dress is an amazing find, so if you're on the hunt for one, grab this one. It's a pull-on style, but its faux-wrap feel with a waist tie, hint of a bottom ruffle, and fantastically fab leopard print elevate what would otherwise be a basic dress. 


Elysees Geometric Wrap Maxi Dress

Grab this stunningly eye-catching dress in plus and petite sizes, and watch the compliments roll in for its unique color combination, effortless style, and stunning geometric print. Grab a clutch and heels, and you're ready for a night on the town.

Santa Fe Maxi Dress

It's always nice to have some comfy staples in your wardrobe, and this dress definitely fits the bill. We have it in Milk Blossom and dress it down with a pair of Chucks, or dress it up with a chic sandal or open-toed heel. It's button-front, breathable, and fits in anywhere.

Plus Slinky Plunge Split Maxi Dress

Okay, so you wanna dress it up. We hear you! This is the way to do it, in a satiny plunge maxi dress with two side slits to show off your gams. With a wrap-front v-neck top and a tie at the waist, you'll accent all your best assets, so get ready for jaws to drop when you slip this on.

Jaden Dress

With a slim-fitting bodice, spaghetti straps leading to a stunning neckline, and center front buttons that trail down its length, this dress is destined for the spotlight... and your wearing it will take both of you there. Isn't it begging to be accented by a cute little purse and high-heeled mules?
