Off-the-shoulder dresses are a recurring summer trend, and it's not hard to see why. They are youthful, stylish and keep you cool during those hot months. The silhouette is flattering, while the flirty neckline reveals just the right amount of skin. They come in so many variations now, too, including long-, short-, ruffled-, and bell-sleeved.

Stock up on the warm season's quintessential dress now with these chic picks ahead. You'll take the Lulus beach-inspired, smocked dress on your next vacation, and the Mango ruffle floral dress to your elevated garden parties
