20 Chic Dresses You'll Live in This Spring

Dresses are the undisputed stars of spring.

A selection of versatile dresses is a must for transitional weather. No matter the temperature, you can always rely on a great dress: wear it with knee-high boots and a jacket when it's chilly, or strappy sandals on warmer days. We're sharing our favorite spring dress trends here, along with SN-approved picks to shop now.

‘Tis the Season for Florals

We know, we know: florals for spring? Groundbreaking.  But really, this much-loved print is a spring essential for a good reason, so go ahead and make it your own. For a subtle floral, opt for our Edie Dress–it looks just as chic with heels as it does with sneakers. If bolder, brighter florals suit your vibe, try a colorful dress from ba&sh or an all-over printed dress like this one by Zimmermann.

Spring for Plaid

Plaid may have a reputation for being a wintery print, but it’s time to change that narrative. Let’s reclaim plaid as a spring staple, shall we?! Our Blanche Dress, which comes in both blue and red plaid, combines all-over print with playful details like smocking. It’s a one-piece wardrobe wonder. Mini dress obsessives, we've got you covered: this navy and white mini dress from Veronica Beard is perfectly on-trend, as is this traditional glen plaid dress by STAUD.

Create a Pop Of Color

Bring in all the pinks, greens, and blues–spring is the season for color. Evolve your wardrobe color palette with vibrant dresses, like this blush dress by Mi Golondrina or an all-over patterned dress by Farm Rio. A cool shade of blue will make a vibrant statement, which is why we love this dress from Fanm Mon. Pastels dominate in the spring, and this Free People midi dress has a perfectly on-trend hue.

Tie-Dye Is Still Trending

Tie-dye reigned supreme in 2020, and this spring it’s still going strong in elevated silhouettes. Our Edie Dress comes in an army-inspired green tie-dye–each piece is uniquely dyed for a one-of-a-kind look. You can also lightly embrace the tie-dye trend by choosing a paler and more subtle color scheme. We love Free People’s maxi dresses and this dreamy blue and white style by Rachel Comey.
