Spring Style: Six Flirty Dress and Skirt Trends
- 1 of 7 |
Burberry Stretch-Twill Peplum Pencil Skirt
The peplum pencil skirt is a dichotomy of sorts—its form-fitting foundation is complemented by loose, draping fabric in the front. This skirt has the best of both worlds: it allows you to show off your stuff while hiding some imperfections. The extra something on the front adds a little sophisticated fun, making it great for transitioning from work to play.
Michael Kors Shibori Stripe Hi-Low Skirt
When it’s a little bit chilly at the beginning of spring, every morning calls for a life-altering, excruciating decision: mini or maxi? With this skirt, which is shorter in the front and longer in the back, you get both! If you want to leave more up to the imagination, there are also longer high-low skirts and dresses that show off a little less leg.
Carven Lace Dress
Kate Middleton’s sophisticated style is so in right now, and what says old-fashioned elegance more than a white lace dress? Mimic the princess by opting for long sleeves. If all white isn’t your thing, you can always pair it with a colorful cardigan.
Lipsy Drop Waist Dress with Jewel Neckline
Maybe you’ve sworn off this trend because you think it’s not flattering, but hear us out! Drop-waist dresses might not seem like a good idea because they sit right on the hips (an area we want to cover, not highlight), but in reality it creates the illusion of an elongated torso—making you seem taller. If you’re still hesitant to take the leap, maybe the fact that flappers wore a similar style in the roaring ’20s will win you over.
Merona Twill Shirt Dress
Wearing your boyfriend’s work shirt is so out (at least in public). Instead, get the same casual, flirty look with this new trend. The shirtdress, a button-down shirt and dress hybrid, turns this Sunday-morning staple into an ultra-feminine look by adding figure-flattering belts or ties and fun, colorful fabrics.
Top Shop One-Shoulder Shift Dress
The one-shoulder dress is an anomaly in fashion—it’s a style that seriously flatters every figure. If you’re lacking up top, the single shoulder can create the illusion of curves, while drawing the eye away from the bust. If you have a little too much up top, the one-shoulder dress keeps everything contained, while once again drawing the eye away from the bust. It’s a win-win—and the fact that it looks good is an added bonus.
