Spring has sprung! It’s finally time to dust off the dresses you stored away for winter and break them out for warmer weather and sunshine. Not to mention, the front of your fridge may be filling up with wedding invites, graduation announcements, and baby showers and you’ll need something to wear for all of the celebrations. Let’s take a look at the latest trends for spring dresses and check out what’s what you’ll need in your closet for the upcoming season.
1. Casual Maxi Dress
A casual, flowing, floor-grazing maxi dress is definitely a spring essential. Maxis come in so many different silhouettes that you can pick the perfect one for you, no matter your shape and size. With so many different ways to style it, this is the perfect piece to pack for your next vacation. Bonus: no time to shave your legs? No problem! (Because we all know that prepping for your office presentation, getting the kids ready for bed, and getting the grocery shopping done usually take precedent over shaving your legs.)
2. Floral Shift Dress
Easily transition from the office to happy hour with a floral shift dress. I love a good shift dress because they’re modest enough to wear to work, fun enough to wear to social occasions, and also flattering on every body type. A bright floral pattern also adds an extra pop of color for spring.
3. Lightweight Tank Dress
A lightweight tank dress is a must for every closet. They are incredibly comfortable and super easy to slip on before running errands or heading to brunch. They’re casual and so soft that you’ll feel like you’re wearing your favorite tee and sweatpants (without looking like it). Throw on some sneakers and a denim jacket and you’ve got an effortless look you can reach for time and time again.
4. Polka Dot Fit and Flare Dress
If you love a classic look, you can’t go without a polka dot fit and flare dress. Polka dots are timeless! They add the perfect feminine touch to any outfit. Pair them with the universally flattering fit and flare dress and you have a fail-proof combo! The best part? With its fun pattern and silhouette, it barely needs any styling. Wear with minimal jewelry and simple shoes and you’re ready to head out the door!
5. Cold Shoulder Dress
The cold shoulder trend is here to stay for at least another season. A little peek of the shoulders paired with ruffles and a flattering high-low hem, this dress is perfect for an evening occasion. You’ll be seeing cold shoulder styles everywhere in 2019, so don’t be afraid to stock up on a few pieces with this fun detail.
