What You Need Right Now: 8 Lilly Pulitzer Sundresses, Both Old And New

Put some prep in your step and pay tribute to the woman who made “The Lilly” the most coveted dress from Palm Beach to Hyannis Port with these eight summer-perfect sheaths. Borne of the desire to hide stains during her time at a juice stand in Florida, the label gained popularity in the ’60s, and Pulitzer’s brightly patterned frocks and beachwear remain a society woman and sorority girl staple to this day. While the designer passed away this weekend at the age of 81, her legacy lives on through her label, both in its modern form and in the adorable vintage pieces that you can’t help but notice on the rack.

Style them with pearls and flats if you will, but we prefer the contrast of a bomber jacket, funky accessories, and some cool kicks like these for good measure. We like to think even the Palm Beach princess herself would have approved.

Shop away, and learn more about the designer in the video below:
