Ralph Lauren offers a dress for every woman, whether you’re the corporate executive needing something to wear to a business meeting or an off-duty athlete.

Here are seven of the best-selling Ralph Lauren dresses that you can buy at Zappos, Amazon, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue:

1. Cotton Mesh Polo Dress

Part of the ‘Polo Ralph Lauren’ collection and the best-selling style dress on the brand’s US website, this dress is instantly recognizable as a Ralph Lauren piece, available in eleven shades.

It uses the same breathable cotton as the polo shirts, with the embroidered pony on the chest.

2. Striped Silk A-Line Dress

For a more elevated look, consider this silk a-line dress. It incorporates the classic preppy stripes with a timeless silhouette and on-trend puff sleeves. Ralph Lauren makes the dress using pure silk, creating a drape for easy movement.

Another Ralph Lauren classic that’s been given a makeover as a dress is the traditional linen dress shirt. You get all the functionality of the original shirt, but with the versatility of a dress.
