As the weather starts to turn, our fashion focus shifts to short sleeves, tank tops and of course pretty spring dresses. This season there are a variety of great dresses that can be worn with a wrap during spring and solo during the summer. Spring and summer dresses come in a variety of styles and with a variety of fabrics. Of course for warm weather you will always want to consider lighter weight fabrics like cottons that wear well, are breathable and comfortable.
Velvet by Graham and Spencer is a large source of inspiration for us with great dresses primarily made of cottons or other lightweight fabrics. One of our favorites is the Freda Dress and for spring and summer we wear it in gorgeous white. With a flared skirt and a gathered waist line, this dress also features ¾ length sleeves and a deep v neck. It really is a stunning dress and looks fabulous on. Made of baby jersey cotton, this dress is machine washable and comfortable to wear which makes it a versatile piece for spring that can be dressed up for special occasions and dressed down for just a simple spring day dress.
Another wonderful spring dress is the Modal Jersey Scoop Neck Dress by Splendid. The modal jersey is so soft and luxurious and it is a great complement to the ruffles around the scoop neckline and sleeves. This dress is available in Mud, a light brown color, or Black and is a great go to dress for spring. We love the pretty ruffles that are subtle, but really make the dress stand out. The modal jersey fabric is amazingly soft and still machine washable so this dress is easy to wear for everyday and can be dressed up too.
One of our favorite classy and elegant dresses is the Wrap Dress by Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati. This dress comes in basic black and features a faux wrap on the side. With ruffled sleeves and a deep v neck, this dress is a super versatile piece because it can easily be dressed up for special occasions or to wear to the office. It is the dressiest of the dresses mentioned in this article.
Finally, when you are looking for pretty spring dresses, we have to mention the Dita Ruffle V Neck Dress by Ella Moss. This gorgeous dress exudes femininity and most certainly qualifies as pretty. We love the deep v neck and the ruffles around the neckline. With a flared skirt and an empire waist, this dress really has a gorgeous vintage style to it as well.
Of course, these dresses only scratch the surface of perfect dresses for spring, but in any case these dresses are a great representative sample of what is available for spring and what classic styles you can incorporate into your spring wardrobe. Don’t forget the option of incorporating a great wrap or two to help keep you warm during cool spring nights. Each of these dresses work well for different occasions and will be great additions to your closet.
