Dresses for EveryBody
One of the best parts about spring and the transitional season of longer days and warmer temps is the gorgeous array of dresses. From linen and cotton to whisper-light silk, our recent collection of pop-on and go looks has something for everybody, from mini and midi to maxi lengths. Whether you are looking to make a statement at a spring wedding or a casual brunch with friends, our recent collection features our classic tunic silhouettes with our beloved embroideries and prints, as well as some new, fresh silhouettes with chic volume and soft ruffles. Here, we’ve picked four of our favorites to add a breath of fresh air to your spring wardrobe. All you have to is add a sandal, slide or sneaker.
Take It To The Max
The longer maxi dress is on-trend and gorgeous this spring. Our Dunas Dress is crafted from a luxe silk and features a flattering cinch waist. The skirt is layers of patchwork and the newest element for spring is the wider sleeve. The trick to wearing a maxi without it overwhelming your frame is to always pick a lightweight fabrication like silk or cotton, and keep accessories simple. If you want a maxi that shows a hint of leg (or are on the petite side) check out the Logan Dress which has a hi-lo hemline and crafted in an equally breezy rayon.
A Happy Medium
The most effortless length is the midi—great for work and weekend. This means it hits at or just below the knee like the Marion Mixed Midi Dress, which has a subtle empire waistline and an A-line skirt with a soft, contrast ruffle. One of the most popular prints for the season is a lush floral and this dress nails it in a muted, pastel color palette.
Make It A Mini
For after-hours we like to keep it short and sweet. This spring, the new silhouettes all focus on the sleeve, and with a little extra volume, nothing looks chicer than a shorter hemline. The Luna Flare Sleeve Dress is a nod to mod with its mid-thigh look and boat neck. Crafted from a silk twill, it’s got perfect drape so the straight silhouette doesn’t look boxy. Mini dresses work with every possible shoe from a flip flop to a bootie (the latter being our personal favorite, especially with a small stacked heel).
