It’s cold and wet out today and spring still feels like it is ages off, but I’m in the mood to look at pretty, light dresses anyway because if I don’t show you the good ones when they turn up, they sell out. First up: I love a dark floral, and this one drapes so beautifully. I’d wear it with a cardigan or shrunken leather jacket.
A simple dress with universally flattering lines—and pockets, which is always a plus.
I don’t typically go in for such a graphic floral, but this Marc Jacobs dress is just the cuteness.
An easy, well-priced shirtdress.
I’d wear this peasant-y n umber layered over a long-sleeved tee now, and on its own later.
This just looks endlessly chic, but quite professional too.
I like that everything here is simple except the sleeves and that standout print.
This dress just looks so put-together and polished.
I never post anything by Tory Burch, because it never really thrills me, but I zoomed in on the print here and it’s really good. Also, it flows quite nicely.
A dress that would serve you well for work and whatever you’ve got planned afterward.
Just a simple, flowy linen dress.
I think this dress would take you just about anywhere.
This just pops so nicely.
I like the contrasting stripe business going on here.
I’m not always the biggest fan of dots, but the fact that this is against a brown background sort of makes it unexpected and appealing.
OK, this is a very summery dress, but it’d look great layered now with a sweater and big boots.
Ruffles are usually too prissy for me, but I think this dress works because they’re pretty subtle. Plus, that yellow!
I really want this—it’s nicely feminine and pretty sweet without coming off too girly.
This just looks like a good option for throwing on whenever.
The ruching here makes this very becoming.
From Allsaints: a good one for days when you want to feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.
I like the longer length on this crisp shirtdress from A.P.C.
Stripes are rather unexpected and fun here.
I was on the fence about this dress from Ganni, but in the end I decided the candy-colored print was a winner.
This is just the tiniest bit Stevie Nicks—in a good way.
I like the shirttail hem here, and the print is so pretty.
From Universal Standard: such a good blue, and I like the sweater-around-the-waist-effect belt.
I am constitutionally incapable of not linking to a good leopard print.
I like the somewhat Grecian cut here.
This definitely needs a belt to finish it off, but it has such a nice drapey thing going on.
