There’s a spring in our step with spring in the air.
We are finally making plans and it feels good.
And plans mean styling opportunities as we finally have chances to dress up, show up and feel our best.
It’s time to push the loungewear to the back of the wardrobe and embrace the ease and elegance of the humble dress.
Florals (forever groundbreaking for spring) are in splashes of both multicolour blooms and muted tones.
Shapes are relaxed and easy to wear making the transition to real world dressing easier than ever.
And as always, spring dresses are fitting for all manners of occasions and plans from picnics to parties to simply popping to the shop.
Here are eight of the best you can invest in now.
