Ever since this post last week, I’ve heard you loud and clear: You want more dresses. And I am here to deliver. I know that I said that my spring dress guide was coming last Thursday… and it’s the following Friday. Which makes me a week and a day late — might be a new personal record for me. BUT as your favorite procrastinator, I’m also a perfectionist and to be fair there are a LOT of dresses out there this spring and I single handedly looked at every single one on the internet. My eyes are burning BUT I found all the pretty dresses that I would 100% wear each and every one of them if I had a bajillion dollars.
The one I did end up buying is this beautiful number from Reformation. It’s linen and the perfect weight for spring and summer. I always think about what I want to wear in summer when I want to dress up and a nice lightweight dress comes to mind. This one is both casual and dressy at the same time, so it’s exactly what I want. I could wear it to a wedding if someone invited me to one, that is, but I could also wear it to an easy dinner on the patio. I am in the medium and it fits TTS!
Below you’ll find my favorite dresses for spring! Lots of color you’ll see but also lots of neutrals and black and white dresses, too. I tried to do a mix of price points as well, so we’ve got the expensive ($240 from Farm Rio) to a budget friendly price of $26.50 from Amazon. So hopefully there’s something for everyone here! See my favorite frocks below.

A few notes:
- If you are looking to come out of this pandemic in the BRIGHTEST hues possible, I see you. I love this Farm Rio dress and would love to see myself in it at a tropical location. This scene currently only exists in my dreams, but still — it’s a good dream. On a completely different budget scale, for under $40, this orange maxi is DARLING and a bit less tropical / beach feeling. And if you want to look like you just stepped right out of the Anthro catalog, the tiered rainbow maxi from Anthropologie is for you.
- Let me tell you how excited I was to find some under $50 gems! I am going to do a try on (IF these stay in stock!) because I love them so much. I love this ruffle sleeve maxi under $40 — it comes in black or white! Or this beautiful sage puff sleeve dress is under $30, but also comes in a few other muted hues as well. I can’t get over this tiered cotton maxi as well — I love finding a dress that doubles as a swimsuit cover up too and a knit max is key for this dual duty dress. Shoutout to this tie waist dress that’s under $40 as well — it could work for a day dress or a pool dress!
- I had to put two of my favorite Amazon finds on this list, too. This scoop neck tank dress is a super similar look to a Reformation dress and the fit is spot on. I wear a medium and it’s not too clingy and fits so well. I also love this mini dress with bell sleeves — I love it (and have it!) in black but there is a myriad of colors for you to choose from! Both are well under $30.
