The Weekend Edit: 32 Spring Dresses You Can Wear Now

By Astrid Carter | 10th March 2022

From smock styles in ditsy prints to sweet tea dresses with retro-inspired patterns, we’ve handpicked 32 spring dresses you can wear now right through to the summer months.

With daffodils peeping up in the parks and temperatures soaring to a balmy 16 degrees this week (we’re easily pleased), spring finally feels like it’s on its way. And if there’s one wardrobe piece that feels like a spring essential its a pretty, floral midi. The new season collections are full of them, from high street brands such as John Lewis, M&S and Zara to investment pieces you’ll cherish for years to come – think cotton poplin smocked dresses by Seraphina and meadow-print silk midis perfect for a spring wedding from Lily & Lionel.

While these all may feel inherently springlike, just a few simple styling tricks can make them cold weather day appropriate. Add slouchy, 70’s style knee-high boots in sumptuous shade and a chunky knit cardigan on cooler days. Or throw over a sleeveless jumper and cinch with a waist-belt for a layered look that will keep you warm.
