5 best women's dresses for spring

Spring has officially sprung and you are finally ready (and willing) to retire your long sleeved knits and flannels of winter for a lighter, airier and more freeing wardrobe. Get the jump on the changing temperatures this spring and invest in a few flattering and versatile women's dresses perfect for almost any occasion this season. Check out our suggestions for the top 5 best dresses you can wear through out the season to keep you looking – and feeling – great all season long.

Fit and Flare, but start with sleeves.

Intent on finding that ideal transitional dress that will take you through the whole season without much thought? Look no further than an elbow sleeve fit and flare dress. The extra coverage on the arms feels good in the early spring months, even when covered with a cute cardigan. It's stylish enough to quickly make it into your weekly wardrobe rotation. The elbow sleeve fit & flare is made from an easy knit fabric that never clings. It's so flattering on many shapes. Offered in a variety of solids and patterns, we're sure you'll love having more than one of these sensational spring dresses amongst your wardrobe must-haves.

There's so much to love about a Maxi dress. Especially one with a knot waist.

You spoke and we listened. Thanks to your valuable customer feedback, we have made our line of maxi dresses even better this season. For starters, we've shortened the maxi slightly across all styles to ankle length – hopefully making them a better fit for all body types. Less need to hem if you're on the short side, and a flirty ankle length if you're on the taller side. That's smart versatility. In addition to the changes we've made to our maxis, we're also excited to introduce you to our new knot front maxi dress. The knot front style makes everyday elegance look simple. The eye-catching knot detail at the waist offers that pretty flare you've been looking for in a super flowy, casual dress. No need to worry about unflattering bunching though. Our knot front maxi dress is designed with a flatter neckline and waist due to the knot so you won't waste a minute feeling self-conscious in that stylish pleated skirt look. What more could you want out of a perfect any day dress?

Short Sleeve T-shirt dress goes everywhere you want, even on vacation.

Made from a cotton-rich fabric with a hint of stretch, our short sleeve T-shirt dress is all about easy. As in easy to wear on a casual afternoon around town and equally easy to care for at the end of the day when it's time to slip into something a little more comfortable (as if that's possible). And, thanks to that stylish added flare of the ruffled sleeve, you don't have to waste one second of your day feeling guilty for being so comfortable in public. This is quite possibly the perfect vacation dress, too. Wear it over a swimsuit to the beach or pool, with a cute pair of tennis shoes while sightseeing, or pop on a cute pair of sandals for dinner later. So many options, each one easier than the last.

Sleeveless Fit and Flare dress flatters so many shapes.

What kind of list would this be if we didn't include our tried and true all season dress as one of the best dresses for spring? Our sleeveless fit & flare dress has been there for you time and time again and we're not about to leave it out now. Offered in two silhouettes – gathered surplice bodice and crossed surplice bodice – the sleeveless fit & flare remains flowy and forgiving, just how you like it. And with 22 colors coming in over spring and summer – not to mention the vast array of patterns – we're sure there will be a sleeveless fit & flare dress you'll love showing off this spring.

Ponte dress adds a little bit of structure to an easy knit.

Our Ponte dresses are always a great choice for spring but practically a necessity for your spring work wardrobe. Don't waste valuable brain power on worrying about what to wear to the office this spring. Our structured-yet-forgiving ponte knit dresses drape smoothly wash after wash, making them a great choice for your professional, everyday attire. And did we mention that they're comfortable? Because they are – something you'll really appreciate when six o'clock comes and goes and you're still burning the midnight oil. With several silhouette styles to choose from (sleeveless, short sleeved, boatneck and square neck sleeveless) in great new colors and prints, you'll have no problem at all finding the perfect ponte dress to help you impress the powers that be at work this spring.
