Four Great Dresses for Spring

Everybody is wearing dresses. Well, if they’re not wearing a boiler suit that is. Dresses scream Spring more than a boiler suit ever could and they are FAR more versatile which is why, in the week the clocks are due to go forward (yay!) I am focussing on the best dresses new-in the shops for Spring. Every spring we are told florals are ‘in’ as if it’s a revelation and a new idea which if course it isn’t - lot of us want to wear brighter colours and flowery things after months of winter hibernation and tights.

Dresses are so versatile because you can wear them in so many ways for so many occasions. To work, to an event, or dressed down with trainers at the weekend. If you’re not a floral kind of girl I’ve included block colour and monochrome in my selection below of the best in the shops now.

1. Peach Print Shirt Dress by Fabiene Chapot.

I did a styling evening at local boutique in Wandsworth - Anthology Boutique last week and discovered this gorgeous dress. It’s a flattering shirt shape with a striking peaches pattern and also comes in a shorter length, a blouse or a midi skirt! Two ladies tried it on and both looked stunning. One was lady was 27 and the other 55 and both totally rocked this. You can order this dress via Anthology Boutique’s Facebook page but if you have any problems get in touch with me!

2. Burgandy belted midi dress at Whistles.

If you work in a more serious job or environment then the above dress wouldn’t be appropriate but this belted burgandy dress would work a treat! The body-con look is now rather dated so replace those with a midi-flared silhouette to make sure your wardrobe is current. There is a slightly open back on this but it is subtle and adds to its allure. if you’re not comfortable with that I suggest a black cami underneath.

3. Red floral Kitiri chiffon shirt dress.

Next is this super comfy, best-selling, chiffon floral shirt dress by Kitri. Throw a camel blazer over this going to and from the office - red a camel are a great combo. Can also be very easily dressed down at weekends with trainers or ankle boots.

4. Rixo London Tiger Print Dress.

Finally I’ve included this monochrome tiger print dress as an antidote to all the florals and colour. Great with a black blazer and coloured heels this also comes in a very red, very floral print if you’re not the monochrome type.
