Playing Dress Up: The 9 Dresses I Have to Have in My Closet for Spring

Mara Hoffman embroidered midi dress for spring

There was a time in my life where I only wore dresses. Like every single day: dress, after dress after dress. And while I’m more of a jeans kind of girl these days, I still like to throw on a dress every now and then. Especially because they’re so easy to toss on and look put together without even trying. Something I’m finding myself more and more in need of, as of late.

So, I put together my picks for cool spring dresses that will have you stylin’ in seconds. These are the dresses I desperately want in my closet right now (especially #1, 4, and 6).

1. I’ve put this Mara Hoffman dress in my cart like 5 times already. I can’t seem to pull the trigger on it, but I probably should before it sells out. Do you love it too?

2. I know the color combo on this one doesn’t scream spring, but I honestly couldn’t care less. The pleating and the print are so good! Farrow bea pleated dress from Need Supply.

Love this poet dress from Lauren Winter

3. This poet dress from Lauren Winter! The color, the shape, the belt!

YES! All about that dress, Ash. If I pull the trigger on that one, we can share it. It will be like the sisterhood of the traveling pants – dress style. 🙂

It’s number 1 on the list, Emma. If you click that link, it will take you straight to the dress. 🙂


Where is the first image from? White dress with embroidery?


I hear that, Van. The relaxed fit of that dress is definitely one of the most appealing qualities….and the print. 🙂


I especially love the anthro dress, I’m a huge sucker for the dark blue/white combo and go to it often. 🙂 And the fit there is universally nice.


Perfect choices Kimberly. Love all of your picks. 🙂


I want #1 and am on the site right now looking at all of the pieces in that collection. I might have to get the skirt. I also absolutely love the poet dress (#3). The length is perfect for me…plus it has pockets; I’m a sucker for a dress with pockets. Finally, #9 is calling my name. I tend to like easy dresses. Great round-up, Brittni!


Happy to hear that, Michelle!


I love all those dresses!
