30 spring dresses that are as attractive as they are comfortable
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.
