    As much as we take advantage of our summer Fridays, we absolutely hate the packing process. How are we supposed to fit three chic outfits (including accessories!) into a tiny weekend duffel the size of a lunchbox? It's pretty much impossible — until we figured out that our beach dresses pull double-duty for fun in the sun.

    Whether you're into maxi, mini, or midi lengths, the key behind the perfect beach frock is the fit. Look for something with a loose silhouette so it can easily be thrown over a swimsuit during the day, but can also be dressed up for the bar with heels and jewelry. Told ya the accessories were necessary!

    One less item in the duffel, one more cocktail in your hand — not a bad trade-off, right? See which ones made it into our bags, ahead.
