When we list all of the reasons we love Summer – s'mores, picnics, beach days – we often skip over one very important fact: that it just so happens to be the best season to express our style. Gone are the coats and boots that were weighing us down through the chillier months, and here are the colorful, breezy pieces we've been dreaming about since the leaves first turned all those months ago.

Now that our calendars are packed with music festivals, pool parties, and a vacation or two, there are more than enough occasions to show off some skin and our styling skills. And while this season's bold colors and zany patterns aren't for the faint of heart, there's nothing to fear; fashion-lovers are a brave bunch. So, since sundress season is just beginning, read on to remind yourself why Summer is about so much more than soaking up rays or sipping Rosé.
