Top 5 Dresses for Spring 2011

In 2011 Fashion Trends on March 23, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Spring is officially here!

Surely you’ve had enough of the cold weather and can’t wait to throw your entire winter wardrobe in the back of the closet and switch to lighter, more feminine and cuter pieces.  Here’s our list of top 5 Dresses for Spring we think every woman should invest in this season:

1. The Orange Dress

Orange and coral are this season’s “It” colors. Bold, bright and eye-catching, these colors will make you stand out in a crown in a heart-beat!

An orange dress is definitely one of this season’s wardrobe must-have’s. We came across this lovely Coral Lace Pleat Dress from Topshop and we think you might like it:

2. The Spring Maxi Dress

We love maxi dresses! They’re fun, stylish and super comfortable. Not to mention, they’re always in style. So if, you still haven’t updated your wardrobe with a spring maxi dress, you must do it soon.

3. The Retro Dress

The ’70s style is a huge trend this season.  Nothing beats the retro style when it comes to bright colors and bold prints which are perfect for spring.  Stand out with a retro maxi dress featuring an array of colors and contrast.

4. The White Dress

The white dress has made a big comeback this spring. Shine bright in a beautiful white dress. Shop for simple designs, silky fabrics and sexy styles.

5. The Nautical Dress

The nautical trend has been around for the past two years and there’s no sign of ever going out of fashion. This season, invest in nautical pieces, especially cute dresses with horizontal blue and white stripes.
