How to Style Spring Dresses

Spring has sprung, and the warmer temperatures have us all packing away our thick tights and leggings, ready to feel a warm breeze on our winter-weary legs. It is time to break out your shorts, skirts, and women’s dresses. But how do you style that new spring dress? What shoes and accessories do you need to compliment your new favorite seasonal piece? We’re here to tell you!

For Brunch

Heading to your favorite brunch spot to meet your friends for brunch? Or perhaps to your favorite local coffee shop for a quick catch-up coffee date with an old friend? Now that it’s warm enough to sit on the patio, outdoor dining is definitely on the menu. But what should you wear?

Layering will come in handy this spring, especially for outdoor situations. Wear a fun, short floral A-line dress and show off your legs. Add some height with a pair of chunky heels. For unpredictable outdoor dining situations, add a cardigan in a cool, neutral tone, such as beige or taupe. This will keep you warm in case of any lingering cool breezes, but the neutral tone won’t absorb all of the sun's rays and overheat you like a dark sweater might.

The neutral tone will also help your fun floral-patterned dress really pop. Add a wide-brimmed straw hat to keep the sun off your face and complete this sweet spring look. Take this fun brunch look to the next level with a collection of jangly bangle bracelets on one arm.

Runnings Errands

Who says you can’t stay fashionable and show off your new spring fashion vibe even while running errands? Throw that new adorable floral cotton dress on and show it off around town while getting your day done. Wear your cute floral dress with a denim jacket that you can tie around your waist if it gets too warm. Pair this fun outfit with some practical but cute footwear, such as a simple pair of sneakers or some low-rise ankle boots.

Dinner Date

The best part about a fun spring floral dress is how easily it can be dressed up or down, depending on how you style and accessorize it. The same cute dress you wore to run errands can easily be transitioned into a fun and flirty date night outfit. Swap your sneakers for some sleek stilettos and trade in your denim jacket for a silky shawl and you are ready for a romantic spring date night. Elevate this look with a pair of simple teardrop earrings.

To the Office

How can you make your favorite spring dress professional and office-ready with ease? Wear your dress with some professional neutral-toned tights and a pair of flats or loafers. Add a fitted blazer or cozy, oversized sweater. You could even layer this look and wear both the sweater and blazer for a cool, layered style that looks positively professional and will also keep you warm in an air-conditioned office setting.

Work from Home

What about a work-from-home situation? A maxi dress paired with a cardigan is the ultimate work-from-home outfit for this spring. A comfy, breezy maxi dress paired with a cardigan is comfortable enough to work from the couch but attractive and professional enough to be meeting-ready when it is time for that Zoom conference call. No one will know you have this professional outfit paired with slippers on your feet!

Weekend Fun

That same spring dress could also double as a swimsuit cover-up. Wear your spring dress to the beach on your weekend getaway. Pull it on over your bikini after the beach or pool and then wear it out dancing later on in the evening. A good spring dress can just as easily be worn with flip-flops as it can with high-heeled dancing shoes. Wear it with a long coat and boots if the weather gets cool or rainy. A belt and knee-length riding boots can complement your spring dress for a chic look to hit the city—visit your favorite galleries and museums or go shopping.

Versatile and fun, practical yet romantic, the ultimate spring dress is out there waiting for you. Whether you are heading to a weekend picnic or heading to the office, a cute and fun dress is always right for the occasion this spring. Accessorize and style for absolutely any occasion and enjoy the spring!
