STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Delicate Dresses for Spring Time

Style Advice of the Week

Spring is a time of rebirth; it is the year’s clean slate, and what color is most fitting for a clean slate other than the absence of color? Besides soft pastels and bright colors, white has remained solid during the spring and summer months. It seems that when spring and summer roll around white blouses, bottoms and dresses flourish from the darkness of winter.

I spotted this Fashionista after class wearing this stunning white maxi dress with delicate sectioned crochet panels. On top she wore a basic denim jacket, which is a good item to have in your closet because you can wear it any time of the year and goes with just about everything. To complete this outfit she wore some white sandals and accessorized with a white wristwatch.

A white dress in the spring is a total must-have. The color will keep you cool during hot days which is a plus especially if you live in a hot to humid region. White is also a very innocent color so you can also wear it during holidays in the spring, like Easter, Mother’s Day or even a family reunion. This white dress by Forever 21 is a good example of a style that you can dress up easily with a denim or leather jacket to achieve a chic and summery ensemble.

On this Fashionista’s dress she had these sectioned crochet panels which I really admired because I thought it gave the dress more of a casual and bohemian look. I found this dress off of ASOS that is quite similar to the dress this Fashionista is wearing. Crochet is definitely a trend that has been seen for years now and has also been seen on the runway for spring 2014. Anna Sui, Michael Kors and Sister By Sibling all featured a few designs featuring knitted masterpieces incorporated in their collections. This dress from LuLu’s also features sheer crochet panels that I’ve been seeing a lot of and it looks absolutely gorgeous on anyone. Pair these dresses with the right pair of wedges, heeled or flat sandals and a cute hat and you are set for a spring day.

I must also not forget to mention for those who love short dresses just as much as I do, check out this one from Urban Outfitters, which happens to be my favorite find! I also found this one from NASTY GAL which seems to be more vintage inspired than most of what you’ve seen so far, this dress would go great with some flat sandals or fringed boots.

Do you want to feel reborn this spring? Are you craving a clean slate? Finding the perfect white dress may be the answer to all your post-winter problems. My style advice of the week is to seek out a white dress of your own. The fact that we’re already in spring and summer is just around the corner, white dresses are super common to find anywhere and with so many styles to choose, from breezy chiffon to crafty crochet you are bound to find something that will make you look refreshed and ready for the season.
