When are we not on the hunt for the perfect one-and-done outfit? This summer, a tiered dress fits the bill perfectly. It's comfy enough to wear around the house but visually interesting enough to don for work, happy hours, picnics, and more. In other words, these soft and flowy garments have the strategic stitching, patterns, and details to make them appropriate to stylishly flounce in from day-to-night activities during these warm-weather months.
This roomy style is inherently layered, thus ideal for both sunny days and cooler, breezy nights. With paneled skirts that increase in volume as they reach the floor (or, just our thighs if we're feeling cheeky) and hemlines that practically float (ensuring top-notch ventilation), these crowd-pleasing frocks feel just as stylish and comfortable when layered under sweaters and paired with sneakers or boots. Ahead, find the 27 best tiered dresses that are more than suitable for summer snacks and sunny naps.
