You can definitely wear this dress on its own, or throw on a light cardigan when things get a tad chilly.
UO Crowley Collard Floral Mini Dress in Green Multi ($69)
This fresh green color enthusiastically embodies springtime. The design on this dress begins with a dainty floral pattern, then builds a more structured collar and neckline upon it. All of the details combine to make a dress thats equal parts casual and formal, made to wear throughout the season in all the different ways you can dream of.
Billabong Be Mine Babydoll Dress ($66)

For a flirty spring dress, reach for this berry-colored style, STAT. The silhouette hugs your body in all the best ways, while the ruffled sweetheart neckline compliments your collarbones.

Levi's Frankie Dress ($98)
This dress from Levi's makes the perfect companion to your springtime wardrobe because the houndstooth pattern is reminiscent of a picnic blanket – and spring is the season of picnics.

Sporting a solid color helps you make a springtime wardrobe statement. Turn heads in this electric orange shade, and relish in the pleasant spring vibes.

With this spring dress, you'll become a beautiful bouquet of blues, pinks, and greens. The puff sleeves are unmistakably cottagecore, which fits right in with the season.
Free People Dahlia Embroidered Maxi Dress in Minted Lemonade ($168)
We don't know if this dress makes us want to drink lemonade, or wear it. The colorway literally has the word 'lemonade' in its name, so maybe we do... both? Anywho, this style makes for a quintessential chill-girl outfit for the spring. Pair it with some flats, put some cute clips in your hair, and celebrate the season.
Madewell Kacie Mini Shirtdress ($118)
