As soon as there’s the slightest hint of warmth in the air, we’re clamoring for a wardrobe reboot. Out with the puffer jackets and chunky cardigans, in with the barely-there ‘fits for spring and summer. Of course, there’s no marker of a new season quite like a warm-weather frock made for sun-soaking, poolside chilling, and field-frolicking — as far away from our cashmere sweater collection as possible, thank you very much. And as for the major trends upgrading our dress selection this season? They’re as big as the hemlines are short.
Whether you’re in the mood for a boost in both style and spirit, or you’re diving deep into the resurgence of Y2K fashion in all its butterfly-shaped, midriff-baring glory, there’s a dress trend designed to satisfy your sartorial appetite this spring. The looks we’ve gathered to kick off the spring and summer months are anything but subtle, offering ample opportunity to peacock your way into a new season. Test a new look or revisit an old one serving serious “Genie in a Bottle” vibes with the seven trends ahead.
