Summer wedding season is creeping up on us, and while our fashion focus is turned towards dresses in which we can watch our friends get hitched, we can't forget about the other attire we'll be needing: shower dresses. Brides are having more me time than ever (I personally have four showers to attend in honor of one bride to be). That means buying fun, not-to-dressy dresses in bulk—we can't have repeats when the same pre-nuptial pals will be attending all these events. So stock up on springy standards, like these exclusives from AKA New York, and prepare to shower your soon-to-be wedded friends with all the attention they crave.
This lime-and-blue off-the-shoulder minidress ($227.50, was $325) combines the floral and tribal print trends that are showing up everywhere this season. Whether you think it's an abstract take on flowers, the planet, or amoebas, this funky pattern will definitely get the afternoon tea crowd talking.
Spending the day getting manis and pedis with the wedding party? Cop a sporty magenta henley dress ($227.50, was $325) for the occasion. Simple, playful and not too fussy, this girly take on the classic collared shirt looks just as great with those paper post-pedi flip flops as it does with heeled sandals.
If an afternoon of shopping with the girls is on your agenda, you can't beat a mini, canary yellow spin on the flutter dresses of Southern belles past ($244.30, was $349). Eyelet detail and a sweet white ruffled top make this strapless silk number seem demure, but you can add your own funky flare to this primary colored dress by pairing it with bright jewelry or white pumps.
