Amazon Prime Day is a flourishing digital haven of deeply discounted goods just begging to be shopped — and as it builds its luxury-fashion cred with a little help from Vogue and the CFDA, the site’s already-expansive selection of brands seems to know no bounds. But, if a fresh Tanya Taylor frock isn’t exactly what you (or your wallet) are in the market for right now, there’s still a sea of more affordable dresses to be unearthed within its shoppable universe of stuff — especially with summer on
While there’s nothing like getting to walk down the aisle ahead of your best gal-pal as she gets hitched, we’ve donned bridesmaids’ dresses enough times in our young adult lives that we’re very content to be guests from now on, thank you very much.

The popularity of the so-called “nap dress” came on slowly and quietly — not unlike the proverbial forty winks themselves. While the womenswear brand Hill House Home is best known for packaging the frock back in 2019, the term has become so ubiquitously applied to a certain style of dress that it’s achieved the status of Kleenex® or Tupperware®; the brand name has come to represent the entire category.
