Spring Dresses For Every Occasion

When the weather gets warmer, it’s time to up your dress game. Never has one piece been so easy, so versatile, and so…pretty. We love that a dress is simultaneously simple (just pop on and go), versatile (easy to style casually or more dressed up) and just makes you feel so good. As spring arrives, take a look at our freshly picked crop of spring dresses, and the many ways to wear them.

Seasonal showers

When a friend is welcoming a baby into the world, you’ll want to show up and celebrate her in style. A super-feminine frock with flutter sleeves is just right, especially is a seasonal color like this robin’s egg blue. A piece this versatile looks great styled a lot of different ways, but we love this take on color blocking with a solid color (but chic!) red sandal and a cream bag that will look great with lots of your other spring looks as well.

Make it work

If spring fashion fever has you craving a sleeveless dress but the temperatures haven’t quite caught up yet, indulge your anyway and wear it with a long sleeved blouse underneath. This look is especially work-friendly, making a sleeveless dress a bit more professional. A small scale print lends itself to really fun styling—pick up one of the shades in the dress and match a bag to it, and add s subtly snake patterned shoe—and get ready for a very stylish 9:00 a.m. meeting.

Out on the town

One of the cardinal rules of date-night dressing is to have a few looks ready to go—right down to the shoes. Many of your most fashionable friends would say the ubiquitous LBD is the one you want at the front of your closet, and we agree. Reason number one? The Little Black Dress is as versatile as can be, playing nicely with almost any shoe/bag combo you can throw at it. Put a bold spin on your LBD by pairing it with solid heels in a hot color and a graphically-patterned bag, and be gallery/cocktail lounge/romantic stroll-ready.

Rose All Day

Brunch season is upon us, which means you need some pretty dresses for when your squad scores a table on the patio. One of our favorite styling tricks is to toughen up a flirty, feminine frock with a few accessories that skew a bit on the boyish side—the contrast can be especially pretty for a daytime venue. In this case a roughed-up denim jacket, some tan booties and a crossbody give just the right amount of edge to a gorgeous floral print dress. A dress like this is also easy to style in a much more dressed up way, making it almost as good a value as two-for-one mimosas.

Here Comes The Guest

Watching a friend walk down the aisle is special—make sure your look lives up to the occasion by having a selection of pretty dresses lined up when wedding season hits. A very pretty (and super-simple) solution is a wedding-perfect lace dress in a very non-bridal shade. We love a dress like this styled with a delicate necklace and bracelet. And neutral heels are pretty much perfect for any dress in your special-occasions fashion arsenal. Raise your glass to a great wedding look.
