Let’s talk spring and summer dresses. What’s in? What’s out? While the past few years we’ve been all about puff sleeves — and we still are — another trend has been emerging that says “so long” to sleeves in general. We’re not talking about tank dresses though. We’re talking about dresses with string-like straps!

This trend requires spaghetti strap thickness max. You can choose a classic style with a narrow strap or go for something more modern with straps that can be tied and knotted at will. You can adjust your fit! Check out these examples of our current favorites. You can shop our top picks on Amazon and elsewhere!
