See ya, sweatpants! As more Americans get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and rates of the virus continue to fall, people are swapping their comfy clothes for dressier outfits. Actually, they're buying dresses — lots of dresses. 

Dress sales are picking up now that people have more places to go. "People are going out more, and so you see that in [sales of] casual day dresses," Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette recently said at a virtual conference hosted by J.P. Morgan. And, of course, plenty of people are returning to work again, making it prime (get it?!) dress-buying season.

If it's been a while since you've had a reason to dress up, it's understandable that you'd want to splash out on a new dress or two. Luckily, Amazon Prime Day is here with a slew of pretty and stylish options that you can wear to work, happy hour, dinner or just because. 

Save big on bestselling dresses, but — heads up —these deals are during Prime Day only. Stock up while you can!
