10 Spring Dress Styles
1. Off-The-Shoulder Dresses
Exposed shoulders. So hot right now. But really, the off-the-shoulder look is flattering on everyone. If you want more of a beachy look, go with a Rebecca Taylor or Parker dress. If you want something a bit more structured and formal, go with a L’Agence or Tracy Reese option.
Pair with:Chuck Taylors for a beachy vibe or ankle strap heels for an elevated look
2. Embroidered Dresses
Nothing screams spring like a good embroidered dress. Embroidery can give a fun flare to an otherwise bland dress. Some of the best embroidered dresses we’ve seen this season are this Cynthia Rowley, this Tadashi and this DVF.
Pair with: a saddle bag and sandals
3. Boho Dresses
Boho-style dresses are the easiest dresses to wear. In a word, breezy. Brunch, the beach, walking around town… throw on a boho-style dress. The obvious favorite brand is Free People but we’re also obsessed with this Amanda Uprichard dress.
Pair with:fringe sandals (duh) or booties while there’s still a chill in the air
4. Lace Dresses
Lace is timeless and seasonless. It’s also appropriate for any occasion. This versatile feminine fabric has been incorporated into some of the best dresses we’ve seen all season from BCBGMAXAZRIA, Ralph Lauren and Altuzarra.
Pair with: minimal or neutral ankle strap heels and a mini bag
5. Slip Dresses
There’s a very sexy, feminine way to wear a slip dress without walking down the street looking like you forgot to get dressed. The key is to keep things minimal with your accessories and makeup. Equipment and Jenni Kayne have nailed the look.
**Pair with: **a bomber jacket and heels for a downtown chic look
6. Crochet Dresses
A bit different from embroidery, crochet is handcrafted from yarn and usually very intricate. This is one of the best spring dress styles to invest in. We’re loving these dresses from Mara Hoffman, Karen Kane and Lucky Brand.
Pair with:embellished sandals and a denim jacket
7. Shirt Dresses
A classic style, the shirt dress is also seasonless. It’s another easy “throw it on and go” style. Here are some great spring options from Sanctuary, DVF and Rails
Pair with: lace-up sandals and a fringe bag
8. Midi Dresses
The midi dress has been revived and we’re newly obsessed with some of the styles we’re seeing. This Mara Hoffman is everything. For a more formal approach, we’re digging this Halston Heritage number.
**Pair with: **slingback sandals and a bucket bag
9. Chiffon Maxi Dresses
Prepare to turn heads with one of these flowing goddess-like dresses. You’ll want to wear one every single day, so maybe stock up. DVF, Rachel Zoe and Maggy London are our top picks.
Pair with:wedge sandals (seriously, that’s it.)
10. [Floral Shift Dresses
Florals for spring, how original (to quote our favorite fictitious fashion editor). But there’s something so feminine and fresh about a shift dress in a nice floral, no? Check out these top picks: Rebecca Taylor, Karen Kane and DKNY.
Pair with:perforated shoes and a studded bag
