If you can believe it, spring is only a month way — and while we have a few more chilly weeks left, it’s absolutely acceptable to bust out all your packed-away spring clothes again (or overhaul your spring wardrobe, of course). While many spring staples like tried-and-true jeans and lightweight jackets are decidedly considered “year-round pieces,” a flowy spring dress is a telltale sign that warmer weather is here. And — you don’t need us to tell you this —Anthropologie is guaranteed to be stacked with the latest spring dress styles that will be upwardly trending on a sidewalk near you.
The best spring dresses can take on many forms and silhouettes, but what sets them apart from other seasonal frocks is a few specific factors. First, the length: The warmer the temperature, the more leg you’ll want to bare — and midi and mini skirts are obviously far easier to throw on when the heat index reaches the right levels. Secondly, spring dresses, for the most part, tend to be flowier and flouncier, which means lots of playful boho silhouettes, such as tent-like skirts or breezy sheath dresses that drape over the body (instead of clinging to it). Third, the hallmark of a true spring dress is one that’s constructed from airy, lightweight materials that allow for movement and ventilation, like chiffon or Anthropologie’s Magic Fabric blend of viscose, linen, cotton, and elastane.
The spring dress is the kind of piece that does so much with so little. It’s a one-and-done miracle that can solve that classic dressing dilemma when you have to run out the door but need a put-together look in a snap. Ahead, in this edition of Hype Machine, we’ve rounded up some of the top-rated spring dress styles offered at Anthropologie that have been ranked and loved by early wearers. Feeling twirl-happy yet?
