40 Spring Dresses To Wear As The Weather Warms Up 

It’s been a long winter, and many of us are fed up with sweater weather. Spring is just around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready to set aside my winter clothes for dresses and pastel prints. While I’m a big fan of winter fashion and layering clothes, sometimes I miss the ease of throwing on a dress and heading out the door. I love not having to think about matching my top with my bottoms. I’m all about a one-and-done outfit situation. Wearing dresses also makes it easier for me to transition my look from day to night. 

While winter may be sticking around a little longer, that doesn’t mean you can’t start wearing dresses a little bit early. I thrive in the sunshine and feel more productive when I dress up. Now that we have extra daylight thanks to Daylight Savings, we can have more fun in the sun. Here’s to spring picnics, day trips to the beach, and more. I can’t wait to put outfits together for this season. Here are 40 spring dresses to wear as the weather warms up.
