Never know what to wear to a gay wedding brunch? Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini feel you. The Kirna Zabete owners have teamed up with Gilt to launch their first capsule collection exclusively for the shopping site, and it consists of ten cleverly-named dresses whose bold prints are definitely not meant for wallflowers.

The busy yet flattering prints on minis, maxis, off-the-shoulders, and more suggest exactly where to be worn: Try the floor-length "Saturday After Six" when you know your weekend dinner will extend to drinks and beyond; the red, white, and blue "Montauk Bonfire" for a weekend out east, and the clash-happy "Bike to Work" mini for—well, you know.

See a sampling of the styles below, priced from $295 to $595, and check out the full collection now available on Gilt.
