New season means a chance update our wardrobes, and with spring coming into bloom, there’s plenty to be excited about. Designers have taken the best of this fresh and invigorating season and created stunning pieces that celebrate spring in all its glory.
Spring is the perfect time to look out for floral prints, pastel hues, floaty hemlines and natural colours that remind us of the beautiful environment in which we live.
If you are looking to buy a designer spring dress, think about what you’ll be wearing it most for. Will it be a wedding outfit or a more casual affair? Do you want to get much use from it or are you happy to wear it only occasionally?
We have picked ten of the best designer spring dresses that also happen to be affordable:
If girly prints aren’t your bag but you still want to look a little feminine and the occasion warrants you wearing a dress, this long sleeve dress by Hobbs could fit the bill. In an unusual colour for spring, khaki, but it works really well with the contrasting of the bright pinks and peachy flowers.
Not every spring designer dress has to have pretty floral prints all over them, as this dress by Tommy Hilfiger demonstrates. In more of a nod to his love of sports, this dress would not look out-of-place at Wimbledon. Available in navy, light blue and white (shown).
Fans of DVF will know that £170 is a steal for one of her dresses, and this one, although not a traditional wrap, makes us wonder whether she is going to start making a name for herself by designing shirt dresses. The beauty of this shirt dress is the silk and cotton mix which allows the fabric to drape perfectly.
If you are looking for pretty florals then your first stop should always be Ted Baker, whether its handbags, coats or dresses. This one is simply gorgeous, there’s so much to love, but, in particular the attention to the colours which mimic nature so beautifully and the unusual neck line.
A perfect balance of fitted bodice with a pleated swing skirt give this spring dress a natural sway that flatters all shapes and sizes. The pretty rose prints are portrayed in delicate shades of peach, pink and yellow, and this sleeveless floral dress also features a keyhole detailing at the neck.
Made from forgiving crepe de chine and fully lined, this is a minimal dress that works well thanks to the almost cartoonish detailing at the hem. Featuring a bold seashell print, it is cut for a loose fit and should flatter most shapes.
Vintage doesn’t get any more stylish than this. We love this dress because of the crisp cotton that it is made from that allows the sharp contours to give extra dimension to the Art Deco pattern. The colours are not particularly associated with spring but the whole dress is quirky and fresh and fun to wear.
Said to be inspired by an English country garden, and we can see why, the painstaking work of the detailing of the flowers on the semi-nude tulle is just extraordinary, the palette chosen to reflect the wildflowers is superb and we adore the nude slip which brings the whole concept together.
Unusual colours and flowers for spring, but we like the contrast of the poppies and the bold red and the blues. Interesting layers going on in the dress as well, three from the thigh down and a ruffle neck makes a beautiful silhouette.
A stunning dress by Vivetta, that showcases a perfect motif of flora and fauna for spring all encased within a whimsical heart theme. We love the cotton bib top and bell sleeves, which give a real 60’s vibe.
