The true beauty of fashion is its ability to uplift. Ever heard of the term happy print? Those joyous motifs can literally put a smile on anyone’s face. And as of late, a wave of rainbow dresses have done just that. It’s a collection of colorful maxis, midis, and minis that have seemingly arrived just in time for our glorious reemergence. There’s no better way to break out of our sweatpants-and-sweatshirt cocoons than with a sublime, prismatic look.
Celebrities are already on board with the upbeat creations, from Gal Gadot in Gabriela Hearst’s crochet dress to Julia Garner in Christopher John Roger’s chromatic number to Gabrielle Union in Caroline Constas’s splashy frock. In the same vein, we’re ready to illuminate our wardrobes this spring and summer with a color-splashed outfit or two. To jumpstart things, we’ve gathered 13 spirited rainbow dresses perfect for a cheerful comeback. April showers couldn’t dampen this parade of festive designs if it tried.
