Tory Burch multi-colored summer dress

What makes this look one of our favorites is the fact that this is the perfect summer dress that we think you can wear to work or for a more low-key occasion. The colors pop, and the sandals make it that much more fun and flirty.

While we may not be able to grab this Tory Burch dress, that doesn’t mean we can’t find a more affordable alternative that gives us the pops of color, as well as the overall simplicity of this look. Plus, we think dresses like this should be considered wardrobe staples, as they can be dressed up or down and make any day bright and cheery.

In order to find something that works for this look, we decided to look for dresses with vertical stripes in order to give us the kind of maxi dress that we can wear to a garden party (similar to what Emily Blunt wore this look to), for work, or even to spend a Saturday with friends grabbing brunch and relaxing. Basically, we wanted a summer-ready maxi dress with vibrant colors that popped just like the one Blunt wore.

Up first is the Andi Pink and Light Blue Multi Stripe Sleeveless Maxi Dress from Lulus. This dress is vibrant and relatively simple, which is why it does call to mind the stunning dress that Blunt wore. At $66, it is actually budget friendly, which is a major plus when trying to find pieces to make our wardrobes versatile.

Another stunning option is a sleeveless hexagon print cutout back maxi dress from Rosewe. With the dress that the actress is wearing featuring strips of hexagons (for a striped look), we figured why not find a dress with a hexagon pattern in general. Originally $116.70, this dress was reduced to $35 to make it not only a steal, but also a great option as an alternative to the dress that Blunt is wearing.
