When a friend is welcoming a baby into the world, you’ll want to show up and celebrate her in style. A super-feminine frock with flutter sleeves is just right, especially is a seasonal color like this robin’s egg blue. A piece this versatile looks great styled a lot of different ways, but we love this take on color blocking with a solid color (but chic!) red sandal and a cream bag that will look great with lots of your other spring looks as well.
MAKE IT WORK
If spring fashion fever has you craving a sleeveless dress but the temperatures haven’t quite caught up yet, indulge your anyway and wear it with a long sleeved blouse underneath. This look is especially work-friendly, making a sleeveless dress a bit more professional. A small scale print lends itself to really fun styling—pick up one of the shades in the dress and match a bag to it, and add s subtly snake patterned shoe—and get ready for a very stylish 9:00 a.m. meeting.
READY FOR THE WEEKEND
The key to looking pretty and polished on the weekend, while still feeling casual and comfy? Style an easy dress with the cutest add-ons. A casual striped dress works beautifully with an embellished drawstring coat—perfect for springtime breezes—and a neutral toned crossbody and sneakers. Going out later? Switch out the casual shoes for some pretty flats or sandals, and you’ll be ready for anything.
OUT ON THE TOWN
One of the cardinal rules of date-night dressing is to have a few looks ready to go—right down to the shoes. Many of your most fashionable friends would say the ubiquitous LBD is the one you want at the front of your closet, and we agree. Reason number one? The Little Black Dress is as versatile as can be, playing nicely with almost any shoe/bag combo you can throw at it. Put a bold spin on your LBD by pairing it with solid heels in a hot color and a graphically-patterned bag, and be gallery/cocktail lounge/romantic stroll-ready.
ROSé ALL DAY
Brunch season is upon us, which means you need some pretty dresses for when your squad scores a table on the patio. One of our favorite styling tricks is to toughen up a flirty, feminine frock with a few accessories that skew a bit on the boyish side—the contrast can be especially pretty for a daytime venue. In this case a roughed-up denim jacket, some tan booties and a crossbody give just the right amount of edge to a gorgeous floral print dress. A dress like this is also easy to style in a much more dressed up way, making it almost as good a value as two-for-one mimosas.
Here Comes The Guest
Watching a friend walk down the aisle is special—make sure your look lives up to the occasion by having a selection of pretty dresses lined up when wedding season hits. A very pretty (and super-simple) solution is a wedding-perfect lace dress in a very non-bridal shade. We love a dress like this styled with a delicate necklace and bracelet. And neutral heels are pretty much perfect for any dress in your special-occasions fashion arsenal. Raise your glass to a great wedding look.
