3. The Caftan

Rachel Zoe Embroidered V-Neck Caftan, $33, QVC

This caftan-style maxi dress will make you feel like a princess with its long sleeves and the black embroidery on the neckline and under the bust. It’s made of a sheer, flowy polyester that’s elegant and comfortable. Choose this piece in one of four colors — each has complementary color accents on the sleeves and neckline. This piece is currently discounted from $72 to $33, and has an Easy Pay option of $8.29 a month for four months. You can’t beat a deal like that!

4. The Jacket Dress

Maya Brooke Jacket Dress, $81.99, JCPenney

If you prefer a classic look, this ensemble from Maya Brooke is a beautiful choice. Thanks to the coordinating lightweight, three-quarter sleeve shawl, you can wear this to a church wedding or an outdoor beach ceremony. Lace details plus the georgette layers on the skirt create a soft, feminine style — you’ll feel absolutely gorgeous in this outfit! Pair it with a simple heel or modest sandal in gray or silver.

5. Pleats and Polka Dots

Pleated Shoulder Polka Dot Dress, $64.95, Christopher Banks

This is one of those rare special occasion dresses that’s both modest and sexy. A cinched waist and sheer detail at the hem creates a modern, flattering silhouette. The length is perfect too — the polka dot pattern falls just above the knee, but the sheer panel keeps the knees covered. Your arms will go bare, but you have the option of adding a sheer wrap or shawl. Another plus is this piece is available in a wide range of sizes, missy and women’s.
