If you’re anything like me, all you ever really want to wear is a comfortable, cute, and classy dress that accents your figure with a fabric and flow that lets you sit or twirl as need be. When it comes to the summer months, sleeveless or short sleeves are a must, and mini or midi lengths will typically help you stay cool while you catch some rays. With so many shops turning toward either skin-tight on the one hand or boyishly boxy silhouettes on the other, where’s a girl to look for her feminine summer dresses this season?

I’ve gone ahead and done a little searching for you and found 30 dresses by 15 brands that just might make your dreams come true. Whether you’re heading to a picnic, the beach, or your own backyard, you’ll love these romantic, feminine dresses and the looks they bring your way this summer.
