For many, this is around the time each year when we stow away the winter coats and fleece things and start shopping for new summer dresses. Since we didn’t really have anywhere to wear dresses last summer, many are predicting that revenge dressing and the subsequent return to dressing up will be the norm this summer.

These controversial dress micro-trends may not be for the faint of heart, but they will get plenty of likes on Instagram (until they can actually be worn for a fun night out).

Read on to find out which controversial dress trends are heating up for summer and to shop chic options for each style.
