If you’re a dress girl like me, then you never tire of the feminine silhouette, from smart midis to sweeping maxis and above-the-knee numbers. Also, warm summer weather has a way of convincing me to never (OK, rarely) put on pants, which is why I rely on an assortment of breezy dresses for work, parties, vacation, weddings, and beyond.
Whether worn for work or play, dresses are essential in my weekly lineup year-round, typically for at least three of the five days a week I’m not clad in workout clothes or sweats (what can I say? The comfy life chose me). But for summer specifically, I lean on a playful printed assortment that feels in line with summer’s chipper mood, and because I like to scoop up a few new styles each season, affordable options are the way to my dress-loving heart. I imagine you feel the same way.
So, in the spirit of affordable fashion and prepping your summer wardrobe before the real heats hits, ahead, my edit of printed dresses from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s. Whether you’re drawn to polka dots, floral prints, or preppy gingham checks, each dress comes in under $50, which means you may want to treat yourself to two, three . . . five (?!) new styles and wear them on repeat throughout the season.
