Spring dresses should be high on your ‘to buy’ list right now. And not only because fashion week-worthy styles are hitting the rails, but because they’re just about the best mood booster you can bag.
Pretty florals, colour-blocking bright stripes and frayed denim are dominating the high-street alongside more expensive embellishments and textured panelling from our favourite luxe labels. Whether you’re looking for the ultimate occasion dress or just something for the weekend, you’ll be hard pressed to choose between the gorgeous spring styles on offer this season.
On the colour wheel, this spring presents a face off between the uber-brights that are creeping in to freshen up your post-winter wardrobes and old faithful monochrome and al shades of denim, which is having another serious fashion moment.
You’ll find on-trend midi dresses, classic maxi lengths and the old faithful shirt dress in abundance among a flood of gorgeous spring dresses dropping online as we speak.
On the high street key new season trends are ticked off in the form of shifts and ruffles while in the designer field there’s blow-the-budget styles we’ve been admiring even since seeing them on the catwalks back in September.
Whether you layer your dresses over knits for now or wait until the temperatures warm up so you can wear them with bare legs and this season’s must-have mules, the choice is yours. But first, you need to decide if you’re going to go short or long, on-trend or classic, or all of the above.
