Spring style is easy. It is the season for flowy, colorful and flirty dresses that are perfectly accessorized with a clean pair of white sneakers, wedges for a backyard date night and the best complement to this (and any) outfit, a hat. Spring has sprung and this year it brought beautifully, muted pastels, bold prints and flattering silhouettes, with it. Here are 12 of our favorite spring dresses that will keep you stylish in your home until summer arrives and we’re (maybe!) allowed back outside.
“One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.” —Karl Lagerfeld
Feeling Groovy Maxi Dress
Set your mood for the day by tossing on this groovy bohemian-blue number from Free People. This dress can take you from a casual day of running around with the kids to a date night sipping wine in your backyard patio when you pair strappy sandals with it.
Rhonda Textured Midi Dress
Yellow is everyone’s color when it’s this shade. We’re a sucker for a mid-length tiered dress and this apron-styled one from Anthropologie is checking off all of our “have to own this!” boxes. Hello, cute back and pockets!
So Fresh Tunic
Warm weather is all about keeping it short and sweet with this square neckline dress. The tunic material gives you an endless range of outfit possibilities. Enjoy tossing this over your strapless bathing suit as you head off to your own happy hour by the pool.
Cipriana Tiered Lace Maxi Dress
You don’t need a tan to have a golden glow about you. Because of the lace details and bright, subtle speckle-dot print on this Anthropologie maxi dress, all you have to do is toss your rattan purse across your body, place your favorite hat on your head and you’re looking great!
“Style is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it.” —Diane von Furstenberg
Georgina Tiered Shirtdress
We feel our best in bold prints and with every print from leopard to floral, this dress is here to stay. Anthropologie’s tiered shirt dress easily found it’s way into our carts with its complementary cut and feminine lace detail. It’s OK if you’re ordering every color, we are too.
Beachy Keen Midi Dress
There’s no better moment on a dress than an open-back and this black midi dress from Free People is heating up with this flirty cross back tie detail. The shape and fabrication are effortless so you don’t have to think twice about how to style it.
Everyday Living Tunic
The ruffle trim and color on this Free People dress is perfect for a Sunday BBQ in the backyard. Not only will the shape of it keep you cool but also comfortable after you indulge in the good food you made.
Corey Lynn Calter Ruffled Maxi Shirt Dress
This maxi dress from Anthropologie makes black and white anything but boring. When your 9-to-5 is done on Friday, you can kick off your work sweatpants and start your weekend looking and feeling good.
“I don’t design clothes. I design dreams.” —Ralph Lauren
Bernadette Silk Maxi Dress
Anthropologie’s silk luxe dress has us feeling pretty in pink (and paisley!). We would recommend styling it another way, but we’re obsessed with the white boot trend!
Lou Jean Babydoll Dress
Free People wins with babydoll styles, of course. Their Lou Jean Babydoll Dress is our spring closet staple. Does it still count as an outfit repeat if we wear it in different colors?
“In difficult times, fashion is always outrageous.” —Elsa Schiaparelli
As if we needed another cotton midi-length dress! This pastel piece from Free People is such a good purchase that your husband won’t mind that you bought a dress that looks like another one you already own.
Day Or Night Maxi Slip
Show off a bit in Free People’s ruffle strap midi dress. With a color and cut this good, no one can blame you if you spend a little more time looking at yourself in the mirror in the morning.
“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.” —Lauren Hutton
