With spring in the air and Easter right around the corner, we can’t wait to start wearing dresses! There’s something about the change in seasons and that bunny-inspired holiday that pushes toward more feminine looks and we’re ready to embrace our girly side. Take a look at some of our picks for stylish Easter dresses for spring — and beyond.
Printed sheath dress
Leave it to Alice + Olivia to create a spring dress we can’t wait to wear. Ideal for anything from the office to an Easter dinner with the family, this stylishly structured dress is as adorable as it is versatile (aliceandolivia.com, $396). The belted dress is covered in a smattering of brightly colored blooms and flatters most figures. Pair with nude platform pumps or wedge espadrilles for effortless spring style. Consider this frock bunny-approved!
After a long winter full of gray, sunless days, we couldn’t resist this cheerful, striped BB Dakota dress featuring a mix of eye-catching colors (swell.com, $60). The scoop neckline and tank style straps give the striped dress a youthful vibe and sense of fun. We particularly like the flattering fitted bodice and full lining, which gives the piece some body. Not to mention the fab colors remind us of a fully-stocked Easter basket.
The 1920s are the decade of choice when it comes to spring style. The runways — from Gucci to Marchesa to Calvin Klein — were packed with Art Deco and Jazz Age-inspired looks and the dropwaist dress is no exception. We’re partial to this stylish find featuring a rich floral print, three-quarter sleeves and a keyhole nape (anthropologie.com, $128).
Lovely in lace
There’s something inherently ladylike (and therefore spring-like) about lace. We love the delicate nature it adds to anything from bags to skirts to T-shirts and how it can take something simple and give it an air of sophistication. Take this school girl-inspired lace dress, with a high neck and pleated skirt as a stylish example, ideal for any Easter event you need to attend (juicycouture.com, $278).
Colorblock is here to stay. It’s been perched in the style spotlight for a few seasons and shows no signs of retreating come spring. Have fun with the trend by donning this bright colorblock midi dress in bold, oceanic hues (bloomingdales.com, $88). The scoop neck style is sleeveless and perfect for a warm, late spring night.
Happy Easter and happy spring!
