Banana Republic Factory’s Got The Good Deals On Delightful Summer Dresses

·2 min read

As part of our never-ending quest to uncover the internet's best hidden dress gems, we stumbled upon a rather underrated frock spot that's ripe with deals. You already know your way around a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so we'll let you in on one of our best-kept shopping secrets: Banana Republic Factory — aka Banana Republic's cooler, more affordable cousin — is a goldmine for delightful summer dresses at up to 60% off.

Before you start adding a slew of the pretty options to cart, be sure to take note of what daily promotions might be available to knock an extra few $$$ off the site's already discounted bounty. Because while The BRF's (yep, that's Banana Republic Factory) clearance section is always a great place to be, coming into it with an extra 60% off promotion under your belt is even better. Once you're armed with an awareness of how and where to save big, go forth in search of delightful summer dresses. You'll find it all from casual to flounciful and many a tiered frock — although we took the liberty of rounding up our absolute favorites from the extensive selection in the slides ahead.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. The product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
