The Best Dresses for Spring

Spring has sprung! And even if the spring season hasn’t technically arrived yet, it’s never too early to start planning your springtime wardrobe. Finally, you can start to wear lighter materials and colorful patterns that make you feel like a brand new woman. No longer do you have to bundle up in several layers and wear thick wool pants and socks and boots.

With the warmer months ahead, you can look forward to endless days of wearing beautiful dresses at work, at play, or even just when you are running errands around town. If you are inspired and excited to transform your wardrobe from drab, heavy winter attire to light, colorful spring attire, look no further. Here are just a few of the best women’s dresses you will want to include in your spring wardrobe.

The Floral Print Front Wrap Dress

Nothing says spring quite like a knee-length, short-sleeve floral print dress. A dress like this really adds a vintage vibe to your whole spring look. It’s dressy enough that you could wear it to church or a bridal shower, yet comfortable and casual enough to be worn while eating dinner on the patio with your family. A placid blue or a hedge green floral wrap dress can boost your look this spring. If you want to try something a tad bolder and even more playful, a wrap dress in a bright coral color with white shibori geo patterns is just the ticket. Finish off the look with a pair of strappy sandals or kitten heels, your favorite necklace, and pearl earrings, and you have just created the quintessential springtime outfit.

The Sleeveless Dress

Right next to your wrap dress should be your sleeveless jersey dress. Spring is such a fun time to debut a gorgeous color palette of various pastels: lavender, yellow, coral, light blue (maybe one in every color?) But come springtime, you always want to have at least one solid-colored dress as a springtime wardrobe staple. The obvious occasion that comes to mind when sporting a pastel dress is Easter, but you can easily get several more wears out of a dress like this throughout the season. The sleeveless v-neck top goes perfectly with the knee-length a-line skirt and the soft knit fabric will keep your feeling heavenly all day long.

The material is lightweight and stretchy, optimizing your comfort and allowing you to feel confident and laidback, whether you are heading to the farmer’s market or attending your child’s piano recital. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another dress that goes as swimmingly with a denim jacket as a casual, pastel-colored petite dress does.

The Striped Knit Sleeveless Maxi Dress

One other springtime dress that goes exceptionally well with a denim jacket is the striped knit sleeveless maxi dress. This is your go-to springtime dress when the goal is to give an indisputably casual, laidback, girl-about-town vibe. It’s the dress you will see every fashionable young woman wearing, from the city dweller to the suburban mom to the country gal. To complete the casual vibe, you can’t go wrong with a pair of white sneakers. If you are heading to the beach, pair this long maxi dress with a pair of flip flops or cute brown sandals. You can accessorize this dress with lots of jewelry, a handbag, and sunglasses or you can wear the dress all on its own. Either way, it won’t fail to make you look fabulous.

The Tropical Sleeveless Maxi Dress

Every gal needs a maxi dress. It’s the type of dress style that looks good on every woman, regardless of age. In addition to a really solid knee-length dress, every woman should have at least one good go-to petite or tall maxi dress in her closet. Maxi dresses are rare in that they can be both casual and elegant simultaneously. Although they are long, the flowy, lightweight material allows you to walk without experiencing any restriction. And we can’t forget the fact that a maxi dress never fails to offer a flattering fit, showing off your silhouette and enhancing your natural body type. A sleeveless maxi dress with a v-neck and lots of colorful, floral patterns is the perfect dress to wear to a slew of different events, from Saturday brunch with the girls to a neighborhood picnic to a date night sipping cocktails on an outdoor patio.

With Spring just around the corner, there's no need to put off your spring wardrobe shopping until the season is actually here. Treat yourself to a few new dresses that are perfect to wear to a spring picnic or on your upcoming spring vacation. Something as simple as buying a beautiful new dress is a great way to put yourself in a brighter mood and help you enjoy spring even more.
