Get Ready for Picnic Season With These 6 Spring Dresses

As the forecasts predict sunny, warmer days ahead, it’s time to put away those wintery layers and bring out your bright and airy spring pieces. Dresses are the ultimate springtime clothing item for a number of reasons. For starters, they are incredibly versatile. Throw one on with a jean jacket and some sneakers for a casual park stroll or with a light cardigan and some strappy sandals for Sunday brunch. Dresses are also essentially an entire outfit on their own, so they’re perfect to put on when you’re in a rush. From midi-length to mini dresses, there is something for everyone’s style taste. They’re cute, comfy, and always make you look so put together even if you only had 5 minutes to get ready. If you’re looking to add a few new additions to your spring wardrobe, check out these six dresses perfect for sun-soaked afternoons.

Sometimes gingham can look a little too much like a picnic blanket, but this black and white take on this classic print feels sophisticated and chic.

You can style it with some platform oxford loafers, if you want to be a little edgier, or keep things fun and flirty with some neutral sandals.
