Pretty Spring Dresses: Bringin’ Feminine Girliness Back

With the weather this week, it’s hard to deny that spring is in the air (at least until we get that one last cold snap that's bound rain or snow on our parade). So here's to a sunny Colorado spring full of flirty, feminine dresses. The dress is a staple of any wardrobe this season, and the variety of styles, fabrics, and cuts tells us that feminine is definitely in. So go on, put on that dress and heels and show them you’re the goddess you are.

Nordstrom Nanette Lepore “La Dolce Vita” red eyelet dress, $360 This little number is a little more than we usually like to pay, but Nanette Lepore’s exquisite cut and styling would make any of us feel like we really are living “la dolce vita.”

Delia’s Helena Eyelet Dress, $44.50 For those of us on a budget (who will occasionally shop at Delia’s but won’t admit it), here’s a great alternative to the luxuries of Nordstrom shopping —delicate and feminine, but still fun.

Bluefly Sweetees knit “Jules” dress, $57.00 Don’t believe everything they say about horizontal stripes. This Sweetees dress will not only look fabulous on—notice the sash to accentuate your waist—but will feel like you’re still in your p.j.s. Add some red peep-toe pumps and you’re all set.

Banana Republic Cap Sleeve Silk Dress, $150 On the more conservative—except for the color—side of things, this yellow dress screams spring. Tone it down a little with a black cardigan and oxford pumps for a great day/night outfit.
