Five fashionable dresses perfect for days in the park
The sun is out, spring is upon us and it’s finally legal to meet up with a group of friends in the park. This means there’s now an excuse to get a bit dressed up and put some thought and effort into outfits once more. For those who love wearing dresses, the warmer weather is always an exciting time. Here are five different fashionable dresses to wear – perfect for sunny days.
Floral midi dress
Nothing signifies the change of the season better than a floral print dress. They can be bright and bold or perhaps a light flowing pastel, depending on preference. The great thing about a midi dress is they offer a bit more coverage for when it’s still chilly in the spring evenings. Additionally, they can also be worn in winter with tights and boots, so can be an all round staple item. Like this pretty green midi tea dress from ASOS.
Slip dresses are the ultimate example of elegance and simplicity. They come in a huge range of colours, lengths and materials but are ultimately all about a basic silhouette with thin straps. Perfect for anyone wanting their inner 90s-babe dreams to come true, they can also be beautifully layered with t-shirts for a cool look that also provides a bit more warmth. They also go great with leather handbags. This satin midi slip dress from Anthropologie is ideal for layering or on its own to complete any springtime look.
Many people have experienced a lack of vitamin D in the last year due to increased time indoors. Mini dresses are the perfect way to expose legs and get them some much needed sun. They’re also really cute, can be styled in loads of different ways and are super versatile. Pair with sandals for a playful spring look or with chunky trainers for walks in the park. This ditsy mini dress from Urban Outfitters is great for warmer days and will look great with a shirt or light jacket.
Maxi dresses come in a large variety of styles and materials and can be really fun to dress up or down. Many people don’t feel maxi dresses suit them due to the length but there’s definitely a type out there for everyone. They go with most kinds of footwear and are great for those with fairer skin who want to be more protected from the sun. This cotton blend coffee bean maxi dress from & Other Stories has a stunning neckline and will provide coolness in the heat.
A style of dress that is really on trend this year is the knitted dress. Again, it comes in all kinds of lengths and colours so it’s all about finding the one that best suits you. The material also makes it slightly warmer for spring evenings. They look great in neutral tones to be complemented by accessories and footwear. This knitted dress from Weekday comes in grey and black.
