Pretty Spring Dresses

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.

As a great example of ways to add contrasting colors, consider the Moonlight Cap Sweater by designer Laurie b.  This fashion forward sweater is available in white and during winter we love to wear it over long sleeve scoop necks in black or any color to add a little edge to the look.  Our favorite top to wear under this sweater is the Long Sleeve Scoop Neck by Splendid.  It is a great fabric and has a sheer look to it.  Available in a variety of colors including white that long sleeve scoop neck is the perfect complement for the Moonlight Cap Sweater. This sweater is a great way to layer in additional winter white fashion.

The Audrey wrap, also by designer Laurie b. features a luxurious knit in Ivory with a subtle contrasting tie at the waist in tan to give it just a hint of color.  With a beautiful fabric and classic feminine design, this wrap is a great winter sweater.

A lighter weight piece that is a great complement for your winter white fashion wardrobe is the Very Light Jersey Draped Cardigan by Splendid.  Available in a variety of clothing including white, this light weight cardigan has a flowing look and long length which capitalizes on two great fashion trends this season – the long length and the sheer lightweight fabric.  You’ll see a variety of similar light weight fabrics such as burnout again this season.

For a different look, consider the Nona ¾ length sleeve ruffle top by Velvet.  This winter white top features a ruffle accenting the v neckline and is slightly gathered in back.  We love the classic look of this top with the feminine touches and best of all the comfortable, baby jersey cotton fabric which is so wearable and comfortable.  It is long enough to wear with a wide belt if you are looking for longer length tops.

If you’re looking for great winter white accessories, consider one of our favorite necklaces featuring large white turquoise beads with specks of sand color on them.  For contrast, the designer utilized small shimmering gold colored beads in between the large turquoise beads.  All of this is set off by a copper chain for additional color.

There is truly no shortage of options for different ways to wear winter white fashion this season.  You’ll find a variety of ways to create great individual style while focusing your wardrobe on winter white.  As you create your own individual style winter white fashion, don’t forget that you may want just a pop of color and great jewelry is a great way to add a little pop or sparkle to help break up a monotone looking outfit.
