6 Essential Dresses for Spring and Summer

It’s not official just yet, but this warm weather definitely makes it feel like spring has sprung. With every changing season, I take the time to go through my closet and decide what I need to retire, what will stay and what pieces I’m in need of. When all is said and done, I take my list of must haves for classic essentials, upcoming events, and trending pieces and go directly to Saks.com.

Saks Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite retailers to shop for my capsule wardrobe elevated classics as well as occasion dressing and the best of spring trends. The biggest readers request was spring dresses, so I thought it would be helpful to roundup 6 essential dresses for spring and summer. All the details on the haul are below!

6 Essential Dresses for Spring and Summer

These 6 essential dresses will get you through all the spring events and into the summer months when planning for your summer vacation.

Faux Leather Dress

Alice & Olivia Spring Leather Dress | Paris Texas Boots | Clutch Leather Bag | Anine Bing Blazer

This Alice & Olivia leather shirt dress is amazing. It hits pretty high on the thigh, but the knee-high boots keep this look gorgeously balanced. We’re going to be seeing monochromatic, neutral-toned looks everywhere this spring and summer. This is a great way to add your own flare to the look.

Pastels are always in for spring, so play around with them. How amazing is this pink linen dress? The puff sleeves are so fun and it flares just enough above the knee for a sweet, whimsy silhouette. Grab a bag and shoes in the same color for a trendy monochromatic look for spring and summer.

White Mini Dress

White Mini Dress | Paris Texas Boots | Clutch Bag

Little white dresses are fashion staples just like LBDs. Although they’re typically considered essential summer dresses, LWDs can work all year round. Which is fantastic considering how easy they are to accessorize and style to match your preferences.

“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Sorry Miranda Priestly, but while florals aren’t exactly groundbreaking, they’re popular for a reason. If your winter wardrobe felt a little lacking in the color department, adding a floral dress to your spring and summer wardrobe is a great way to welcome some color back into your closet.

Maxi Dress

Active Dress

Staud Court Cross-Court Two-Tone Minidress | Naghedi St. Barths Large Graphic Geo Tote Bag

I’m slightly obsessed with this Staud tennis dress. It’s my favorite active summer dress. Pair it with an oversized tote and white sneaker for a casual, cool look, whether you’re headed to tennis or not!
