Modern & Contemporary Dresses

When you want to look and feel your best, modern and contemporary dresses always provide you with a variety of stylish options. From casual and day to night dresses to formal and wear to work dresses, you’ll discover an wide range of choices to ramp up your workweek and weekend rotation!

In search of dress for a special occasion or formal event? Opt for a super sleek sleeveless A-line dress with a fitted bodice and lace overlay. The effortlessly chic style pairs easily with your favorite pumps and accessories to make for a truly memorable look at any party or celebration. You can also coordinate with a blazer or evening jacket if it’s a colder night.

Need a dress that’s perfect for your workweek? A cap sleeve chambray dress or a sheath dress with cutout details along the neckline put added fashion flair into your everyday routine. Whether you match the dress with an elegant pair of heels or platform sandals, you’ll love how multi-faceted your professional attire can be. Add boots and tights to the look as the season starts to transition to fall.

Nothing has the lightweight airiness of a maxi dress. From solid colors and prints to strapless and racerback styles, you’ll find an assortment of choices to punctuate your casual look. Features like a scoop neckline, pullover style and sheer skirt overlay give the contemporary dress added style.

If it’s a day to night look you want, you’ll uncover everything from shift dresses and high-low hem dresses to shirtdresses and body-con dresses. So whether you’re heading out for dinner after work or just aiming to hit the town in style, there’s sure to be a modern dress to suit your taste.

No matter what type of dress you’re looking for, our collection of modern and contemporary dresses offer an amazing selection for any occasion. Shop the options at Macy’s.
