MaxiDressLayeredSpring

1. Tibi Bella Floral Handkerchief Dress ($695) + H&M Knit Sweater ($50): For a festival-going look that鈥檚 right in line with your bohemian sensibilities, just do less. Seriously. Breathe new life into a maxi dress by throwing a slouchy or cropped knit sweater into the mix. Add a vintage saddle bag and some free-wheelin鈥 slides.

2. H&M Jersey Top ($10) + Zara Multicolored Crochet Dress ($60): Come vacay time, you鈥檒l be itching for beach-y dresses that can be tossed over a bikini or layered over a plain white tee for more coverage (because sometimes a cover-up just isn鈥檛 enough). Enter the sporty multi-colored dress of your dreams that鈥檒l take you from poolside chilling to grabbing drinks on the veranda just like that. Don鈥檛 forget a floppy hat and some metallic Birks to solidify your beach bum status.

3. Talula Edo Jacket ($98) + Mango Floral Print Dress ($60): Be it the first baseball game of the season, a double date or a weekend road trip, it doesn鈥檛 get more all-American than this girl-next-door pairing.

4. Topshop Satin Bomber Jacket by Boutique ($240) + Mango Flecked Cotton-Blend Dress ($40): Sporty vibes reign supreme this spring thanks to versatile athleisure staples, like a tough-girl bomber jacket and a non-fussy t-shirt dress that will always do you right. Take note: A knee-grazing cotton-blend dress paired with a satin bomber jacket is totally glam, yet still low-key enough for a day of running errands. No need to be a layering whiz to pull off this minimalist look 鈥 all that鈥檚 missing is a pair of street-inspired kicks.

5. Madewell Cotton-Chambray Shirt ($70) + French Connection Miami Graffiti Organza Dress ($288): Have a chambray shirt? Layer it underneath a playful shift dress to keep chilly temps at bay. Taking you from desk to drinks, this scene-stealing combo will make you look (and feel) super put-together and ready to tackle the day ahead of you. Throw in some punchy heeled sandals and a statement necklace for Jenna Lyons-esque styling.

6. Just Female Violet Roll Neck ($120) + French Connection Sundae Suiting Dress ($198): Channel your inner Alexa Chung with this Parisian-chic combo you can rock with your favorite ankle booties or two-tone loafers. Simply layer a black pinafore dress over a striped turtleneck for a boardroom-ready look that can double for happy hour. It鈥檚 that easy.

DenimDressLayer

7. Wilfred Free Vivienne Dress ($85) + H&M Sweatshirt With Zip ($25): Calling all lazy girls! Wardrobe conundrums simply don鈥檛 exist when you have a stylish duo this simple and streamlined on standby. Perfect your roll-out-of-bed-and-go routine with a casual slip dress and an everyday gray sweatshirt that can take you from an early morning walk to a balmy afternoon in the park. Just add some white sneaks for a laid-back look you can wear all spring (and beyond).

ShirtDressLayer

8. H&M Long Shirt Dress ($30) + Madewell High Riser Skinny Jeans ($130): When you鈥檝e exhausted the whole jeans-and-a-tee look (been there, done that), take things up a notch by tossing a sheer printed shirtdress over some black high-waisted skinny jeans. It鈥檚 an easy style hack that requires zero effort. For a rocker 鈥榯ude, a bold red lip and pointed-toe mule flats are obligatory.

OfficeDressLayer

9. J.Crew Ruffled Button-Up Shirt in Stripe ($88) + H&M Sleeveless Dress ($50): On any day of the week, nothing makes a more lasting first impression than a button-down shirt layered underneath a sleeveless shift dress. In lieu of chambray, which takes on a more casual tone, opt for menswear-inspired stripes for a polished schoolgirl look.

LaceDressLayer

10. Wilfred Free Tolstoi Knit Top ($125) + Golden by TNA Edge Dress ($95): It鈥檚 officially time to start thinking about your lineup of Coachella-bound getups. For your own unique spin on festival fashion, layer a sleeveless knit top over an easy-breezy lace dress. (Be sure to size up in the sweater for an effortless fit.) Then, finish off your look with fringed OTK boots and a flower crown to match.

DayDressLayer

11. Topshop Shawl Collar Sleeveless Jacket ($85) + Madewell Checked Twill Shirt Dress ($100): Can you say new weekend uniform? Say bye-bye to your track suits and sweats and hello to a cool girl-approved gingham shirtdress. This outfit can be dressed up or down with just the right layers. A cross between your go-to field jacket and boyfriend blazer, a utilitarian vest will straight-up slay no matter how you style it.
