1. Tiered Ruffle Maxi Dress in Sage Green

I’m so so obsessed with this maxi dress—this color is everything this season. Catch me wearing this dress with a pair of cute sandals or heels.

You can even have a more relaxed outfit by throwing on a pair of white sneakers.

This dress is seriously so versatile and the fabric is light meaning you won’t be sweating when it’s 80 degrees out.

I found this one on ASOS and it’s in the more medium price range at $50. I’ve found that this is the average price range when it comes to spring and summer dresses.

2. Tiered Midi Sundress in Leopard Print

Ok, so this another winner—you can never go wrong with leopard print. Animal print is one of those designs that never seem to go out of style.

This midi dress is the perfect length for me. I can see myself rocking this in the summertime while I’m lounging by the pool with a margarita in my hand.

I love the detailing in the front with the deep V. I find this style to be really flattering on everyone—it gives that sexy touch.

You can shop this dress on ASOS for $43, which is more on the affordable side.

3. Midi Smock Dress with Polka Dots

You really can’t go wrong with polka dots and navy blue—such a good combo. I love that this dress has sleeves so it’s more like a shirt dress style.

This dress is perfect for a date night out and you can pair it with a denim jacket and white sneakers as the first option. Or you can style it with a pair of heels and a cardi.

Another ASOS find on the way more affordable side at $31. Most of the time ASOS has promo’s going on so you’ll be able to snag it at an even better deal—just keep your eyes out when they have sales.

4. Cami Midi Sundress in White

This is my most flexible dress find. You can never go wrong with a simple white flowy dress—the ultimate must-have fashion piece.

I would totally wear this to a picnic or brunch with the girls. To top off the look I would style it with some wedges and a cute headband.

The fabric is definitely lightweight but it’s also a bit sheer, so you will need some spanx or something underneath it so your underoos aren’t showing through.

I also can’t rave enough about how comfy this style sundress is—you won’t have to worry about food babies when you’re wearing this out to eat.

This dress is actually almost identical to the sage green dress earlier from ASOS except this one is priced at $40.

5. Free People Midi Shirtdress

This one is another one of my top favorites. The dress comes with adorable puff sleeves that tie.

Honestly, I don’t think you can ever really go wrong with Free People. I would totally wear this to a spring wedding with some heels and my hair done.

You could also wear it for a casual day for brunch and paired with a good pair of white sneakers.

The details on this dress are amazing with the V neckline and buttons running down the center. It’s really breezy and has a soft denim color making it perfect for spring and summer.

Originally this dress is on the pricey-er side at $108 but you can find it on sale sometimes at Nordstrom.

6. Mini Wrap Dress in Mustard

This mustard yellow color is screaming spring and I’m obsessed! I really think this color is flattering on everyone.

Also from ASOS, this mini dress would look cute with a pair of statement earrings and topped with a leather jacket when it cooler at night.

Another great option for weddings when you’re deciding between wedding guest dresses to wear.

It’s $29 on ASOS, which is a major steal in my opinion!

7. Squareneck Mini Floral Dress

The perfect dress for a day at the beach or for a date with that special someone. The pink and floral print have such a flirty vibe to it.

Abercrombie & Fitch has really stepped up their game and I’ve been loving their new collections. I love the squareneck detailing—it really makes your décolletage look good.

You can find this dress at A&F for $59.

8. Faux Silk Slip Dress

This faux slip dress is definitely more on the formal and elegant side—but don’t let that stop you from wearing it out and about.

Dusty rose has been one of my favorite colors this spring season. I just love the natural color feel to it.

There are so many ways I would style this dress. The first way would be by itself with a pair of heels and maybe my hair up.

The second way would be wearing a basic white tee underneath with some black boots for a more casual and edgy look. The last way would be the classic denim jacket and white sneakers.

This dress is definitely more of a splurge. You can get it at A&F for $89.

9. Short-Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress

Gingham has been so in this season and this dress is adorable. I feel like gingham screams picnic aesthetic.

I love how playful the dress is with the ruffles. I could totally see myself wearing this into the summer.

It’s the perfect length for those warmer days and wanting to show a little bit more leg.

Get yours at Abercrombie & Fitch for $59.

10. Cap-Sleeve Tee Dress

Tee Dresses are an everyday basic essential. They’re so easy to style and wear all the time.

I love this one because it’s a dark faded black color. I feel like spring style isn’t all about pastels and light colors.

This tee dress makes a great outfit to wear on a night out with a leather jacket! You can look stylish but still feel comfy.

You can really find these dresses everywhere, but I found this one at Madewell for $58.

11. Midi Puff Sleeve Micro Dot Dress

I’m in love with the puff sleeve detailing and the square neckline. I also adore the mini dots throughout—it’s a more modern and trendy polk dot.

It’s the perfect midi dress that can be styled to wear to a fancy dinner or you can wear casually out to lunch or hanging out with friends.

The black and white colors never go out of style and you can easily mix these colors with brighter ones.

This dress is a Lisla & Bird exclusive with ASOS. You can buy it for $51.

12. Ruffle Sleeve Mini Dress in White

This is the last dress in my line up and I wish I would’ve ordered this one!

I feel like I don’t have enough mini dresses in my wardrobe. This one is super cute and dainty.

The ruffle and tiered detailing give this dress a timeless look. The tie detailing in the back is an added bonus making it super adjustable.

You can this basic dress at Abercrombie & Fitch for $69. This one is definitely on the expensive side but the quality is nice.
