    Top 5 Dresses to Wear for Spring 2018

    February 19, 2018

    With the temperatures warming up and the flowers starting to peek their way above the ground, means spring is almost here! This time every year I start to crave dresses and always find myself pulling them out from the back of my closet to give a little color to my winter wardrobe.

    This year, while I’m focused on saving for some specific, quality pieces, I still love checking out all the new styles that come into stores like Old Navy, American Eagle, and Express and I want to do a collection of a few of my favorite, budget-friendly styles if you’re looking to add to your warm-weather collection this year but don’t want to break the bank (a la, under $50 dresses!).

    My first pick is from Old Navy. They have a beautiful selection of white and blue dresses this year but when I saw this one in the stores I almost bought it for myself. The fit, style, pattern, and material is really high-end for an Old Navy dress and the price is nothing to flinch at either!

    Second, is this figure-flattering wrap dress with tiny little white polka dots and a darling fit. I have one almost similar and you would not believe how easy it is to dress it up or down with accessories, shoes, and bags. Day to night in a breeze.

    Add a little bit of pink to your spring collection with this darling little dress from Express. Style with a little straw clutch, summer hat, and wedges for an afternoon tea party with your favorite gal pals.

    Fourth, comes in just under $50 and is worth every penny. Stripes, florals, midi-length, and wide straps… what more could you ask for in a spring/summer frock? It reminds of the dress I wore in this post and I still love the simple elegance of midi dresses.

    And last but not least is from one of my favorite online retailers – ASOS. This might just be my favorite hue of all time and the style works well for both formal events and beach vacations. The bow back doesn’t hurt anything either 😉
