There are a few fashion mainstays you can just about always rely on to come through for you in your sartorial moment of need: an LBD, a crisp blazer and, oh yes, anything from Gap. A thoroughly chic and versatile array of dresses has arrived just in time to see you through summer, appropriate for everything from a long day in a none-too-cool office, to a night out with the ladies, to a special evening with a certain someone. Make the most of the season with seven days of gorgeous Gap dresses that you'll undoubtedly turn to again and again.

Kick off the work week with the ultimate essential: the Solid Wrap Dress ($54.95). Think of it as a modern power suit – completely on top of its style game, flattering and always reliable. It conveys a corporate feel but also exudes sophistication, and is so easy to dress up if you're transitioning to an after hours event that's all class.

Who knew simplicity could be so posh? The Ruched T-Back Dress ($54.95) nixes the notion that neutrals are boring. If anything, this spare dress evokes the kind of low-key style expected of a timeless wardrobe staple. It's easy enough to pair with a denim jacket and flat sandals, but in a pinch it's also a perfect choice on a warm spring morning as you frantically get dressed for work. Throw a blazer on top and voila: done!

The Striped Drawstring Maxi Dress ($69.95) is laden with possibilities. Beautifully emblematic of a breezy day spent wandering the boardwalk, it's an easy-casual choice that takes you from day to evening flawlessly. Sport it with flats or wedges, tie a vibrant scarf on, and dress it up just enough to keep your hottest-day-of-the-year looks polished and fresh.

Everyone is obsessed with the slightly vintage allure of the Geometric Sheath Dress ($64.95). Recalling a hint of charm from an era long gone (you can thank the retro print for that), this fitted number is designed to flatter, with a figure-forgiving silhouette and a sweet pattern that's just plain classic. Throw a cardigan on during the workday, then dress it up with maximum impact jewelry for a night out.

Did someone say date night? This adorable Printed Crossover Dress ($59.95) introduces a touch of the wild to your warm-weather wardrobe with its vivacious animal print. Less dramatic than standard fare, it's a playful alternative to fiercer options, yet it still feels a little daring thanks to its bold color palette. And best of all, it transitions easily from a.m. to p.m.

At a glance, you might instantly designate the Striped Roll-Sleeve Shirt Dress ($59.95) as your weekend dress du jour – that's how perfect it is for your most relaxed moments. In lightweight, crisp cotton, it's destined to keep you cool no matter where the day takes you – a sidewalk café, farmer's market, park or outlet mall – and is just pulled together enough to substitute your tanks and shorts with a little extra flair.

It just isn't spring until you break out the stripes! With this Printed Pocket Drawstring Dress ($59.95) in your arsenal, you can steer yourself in a slightly different direction from the typical (albeit always adorable) nautical look. The vibrant turquoise and orange combination offers a refreshing change of pace from the usual, and is perfect for livening up a casual night out or lunch on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
