Spring Is Almost Here—These Are The Dress Trends To Try This Season

Spring Is Almost Here—These Are The Dress Trends To Try This Season

Spring may not have sprung just yet, but that doesn’t mean we’re not already stocking up on warm-weather essentials for the upcoming season. While we adored this winter’s trendy teddy coats, corduroy jackets, and oversized puffers, we honestly can’t wait to shove them into the back corners of our closets and give them a much-needed break. Dresses are a no-brainer option when spring comes around—they’re effortless, comfortable, and easy to layer when the weather is less than ideal. Slip on a lightweight jacket, long-sleeve tee, or block-heeled boot and you’ve got a perfect ensemble for in-between weather. And, lucky for you, our algorithm has the lowdown on the Top 10 spring dress trends—from feminine ruffles and sleeves to the fiercest animal prints (yes, they’re still very much a thing). So while you cozy up by the fire away from the winter chill, hop online and stock up on these top-rated styles. Dress weather is just around the corner, we promise! Opening image: anthropologie.com

The Rankings

ASTR the Label Cowl Strappy Dress
Rank & Style Approved


ASTR the Label Cowl Strappy Dress

ANIMAL PRINT: Arguably the biggest trend of the season, animal print turns any piece into an "It" piece. Our pick is the same classic slip dress you know and love, but the leopard print adds a little edge.

AMUR Jaylah Mixed Animal Print Dress

MIXED MEDIA:  While print and pattern clashing was once a big no-no, the runways are telling us otherwise this season. Just be sure to keep it simple with the shoes—we’d opt for something strappy and black.

Tanya Taylor Valeria Tie Dye Silk Faux Wrap Dress

TIE-DYE: Tie-dye was alive and well in the ‘60s and ‘70s, then again in the ‘90s, and—thanks to designers like Prada and Stella McCartney—it’s officially back. Style the trend with subtle pieces to avoid resembling that hippie costume you wore in college.

Amur Clayton Dress

ASYMMETRICAL: While asymmetry is nothing new, this season brings an entirely different take on the trend. Look for dramatically hanging hems, mismatched sleeves, and one-shoulder silhouettes.

Rhode Resort Lea belted cotton-voile midi dress

GO NATURAL: This spring, neutral is the new black. Our pick features an easy-breezy silhouette that adds to its natural vibe.

Loveshackfancy Sutton Dress

FEMININE RUFFLES: Ruffles, frills, and flounces have the power to elevate even the simplest pieces without overdoing them. Never fear—this season’s ruffles are far better than the ones you wore as a toddler.

Current Air Dansant Dress

PUFF SLEEVE: Courtesy of the ‘80s, the flattering and feminine puff sleeve has made its way back to the runways this season. This nostalgic silhouette is giving off-the-shoulder dresses a run for their money.

Topshop Utility Shirtdress

 UTILITY: Versatile, comfortable, and easy to wear, the utility shirt dress is arguably one of the best dress purchases you’ll make. Take it from desk to dinner with the switch of a shoe.

Eliza J Dot High/Low Fit & Flare Dress

POLKA DOT: This season has seen the revival of many retro prints, but the biggest has to be polka dots. Requiring practically no styling, you’ll turn to this polka-dotted dress, again and again, this spring.

Ulla Johnson Maya ruched embroidered satin midi dress

BURNT ORANGE: According to our friends at Etsy, burnt orange is about to be everywhere. While orange isn’t exactly for everyone, this soft and earthy version is a little more natural and universally flattering.
