Happy cool girl spring, everyone.
Spring dresses are the ultimate option for easy dressing in the newly warm weather, as they are simple to style with sandals and sunglasses or dress up with some heels and a leather jacket on a more chilly night out.
Whether you love florals, polka dots, a whisper of pastels or a real splash of color, there are styles for everyone. Aside from the pattern and fabric, you can go short with a mini-dress, keep it classic with a midi-length or feel like a goddess in a floor-length maxi, all in a range of prices, as well. There are also options for long-sleeve, sleeveless, tight or flowing — really the choice is yours.
With warmer temperatures on their way, it can only mean one thing: dress season is upon us (spring weddings here we come!). After months of hiding inside and bundling up in sweaters and coats, we’re ready to don a cute spring dress, our favorite one-and-done style.
This spring and summer, dresses are all about combining effortlessly comfortable fabrics with stylish silhouettes. From flowy, floral maxi dresses and bohemian designs to everyday staples, the best spring dresses can take you from an outdoor brunch to a night out with friends. Above all, the bright colors and patterns of dresses for the spring 2022 season should make you smile.
We compiled a list of our favorites from all styles for this upcoming spring, coming in quickly on the backs of the last winter winds. Take a look at our picks, and then browse through the brand’s other offerings as well to stock your closet before spring and summer end and we are back wearing boring pants and jackets.
Working from home has made us love comfy clothes and now a days I look for styles that are just as easy to dress up and wear out of the house as they are to wear when chilling inside. If a set feels too casual to step out in, a slicked bun with gold hoops will take the look from couch to coffee shop.
The last time I was this excited about a track pants was when Sue Sylvester (legend) rocked hers on Glee. Old-school track pants with a stripe down the side look sporty chic.
Bring retro flair to your off-duty looks with the Mackenzie pants from Isabel Marant, Étoile. Made from a colorblocked technical fabric, they have an adjustable drawstring waist and two back zipped pockets.
Inspired by an ’80s athleisure aesthetic, this track jacket from Isabel Marant is striking in its colour block design and is complete with the branding patch at the chest.
Just as comfortable, but a bit more put-together.

Eventually, winter will give way to spring. Although it seems like a lifetime away, seasons do change–and it’s good to be prepared. Sweaters have the distinct honor of being MVPs for a reason: They’re useful year-round! While you’ll inevitably put the chunky jackets and vests away as temperatures rise, you won’t need to push all your sweaters to the back of the closet. They’re still your wardrobe BFFs when spring comes around. You’ll appreciate the way they warm you up when you’re wearing a sleeveless dress, for example.
In Fall season as temperatures start to fall and skies begin to darken, attention naturally shifts to the clothes that will soon dominate your wardrobe. Through the chilliest days and nights of the year, the humble sweater plays a significant role in helping you stay warm, comfortable, and stylish when it matters the most. Even when you aren’t particularly focused on dressing up–maybe you’re more concerned with braving those brisk elements–you can trust that your sweater will step in and pull things together anyway.
Sweaters Are Just Plain Easy
Forget about spending countless minutes in front of the closet every day. The eternal “what to wear” struggle is real, but it’s not quite as bad when there’s a sweater involved. The great thing about sweaters is that they really are just that easy. You don’t have to consider how to wear it, what to wear it with, or whether it will look right. There’s a sweater for everything, which means your outfit-planning worries are a thing of the past–at least during sweater season. Grab the sweater, wear the high-rise jeans, step into the cords, or pull on the skirt. Finish with sneakers, boots, or heels. Done!
They Keep You Toasty
Much like the bear hug that soothes your soul, the mug of piping hot chai that keeps you going in the morning, or that sensation you experience as soon as you step inside after an all-too-long commute home, a sweater can warm you up like a charm. Something is comforting and almost nurturing about the sweater in all of its iterations. The feeling of cashmere or wool brushing against your skin is gentle and inviting, especially on brisk days when you would much rather stay at home. While you probably can’t do that if you have commitments in your schedule, you can grab a sweater before you head out the door.
They Layer So Well
Sweater season is layering season. The two go hand in hand, and you can trust that when there’s a sweater around, there’s probably a layer or two underneath it. What you choose to wear underneath is entirely based on what’s happening outside. Some people can get away with a light tank on a breezy day, but you might need something more substantial if the weather calls for it. Turtlenecks look incredibly chic when worn beneath chunky shawl collar sweaters and paired with skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots. Shorter cable-knit sweaters look even more stylish when they’re layered over a plain tee in a contrasting color. Think outside of the box–you can even mix and match colors and patterns to make your winter wardrobe more exciting.
You may think it’s impossible — and expensive — to whip together a complete wardrobe full of timeless fashion pieces, but it’s easier than you might think. A few classic designer pieces are all you need to mix and match looks that can become staples in your closet.
Although it may seem counter-intuitive, investing in high-quality, timeless designer pieces that will last you for years — decades even — can be worthwhile and save you hundreds or even thousands in the long run. So are you ready to upscale your wardrobe and get more cost per wear? Here are the 7 must-have classic designer pieces to get you started!
1. Black Dress (The quintessential timeless fashion piece!)
This one may seem obvious, but the LBD is iconic for a reason. Perfect for date nights, evenings out, and formal events, a great little black dress should make you feel like a million bucks — but shouldn’t cost you as much!
Most stylists recommend shopping for a dress that hits you at your knees or slightly above to make it work for just about any occasion.
2. Classic coat :
The Burberry trench coat may be the most well-known of all timeless fashion pieces, but you don’t have to spring for a thousand-dollar jacket to enjoy this trend. A classic, well-tailored trench in classic tan or black or pink is all you need to look chic and effortlessly pulled together
3. A white dress :
Cool, and easy to dress up or down, a white dress shirt is ideal in many situations. it’s also the basis for a simple wardrobe. It’s perfect for work, important meetings, but also pairs well with blazer or a fun jacket.
Though you don’t have to break the bank to invest in a great white dress, you do want to search for one that fits well and is durable.
4. A blazer:
I love a good blazer to instantly complete an outfit that’s feeling a little lackluster. Blazers pair well with casual and professional outfits and even look great over dresses. I recommend opting for a neutral color — white, black, navy blue, or tan — to ensure it will go with most pieces in your closet.
5. A great pair of jeans (A forever timeless fashion piece) :
Is there anything better than slipping into your favorite pair of jeans and knowing you look good? A classic pair of denim jeans should be well-fitted, in the style of your choosing, and easily go from day to night. Higher price points might be worthwhile, but you can find great denim at stores like Madewell for a little less cash.
6. Denim jacket :
I’m not recommending a Canadian tuxedo here, but a denim jacket is a great staple. It works well over a dress and pairs nicely with a pair of black or gray jeans.
You can also opt for jackets with small embellishments to make your denim your own. This is one of the most affordable timeless fashion pieces that looks great no matter your age or personal style.
7. A classic handbag:
Of course, nothing completes your outfit better than a signature handbag. Investing in a pieces that can last you for years to come may make sense, but you can find more affordable options as well.
So if you do opt for a higher price point, I recommend using it sparingly; otherwise, it might start seeing wear and tear sooner. Plus, taking it out for special occasions can make this item feel more precious.
