Nothing screams warm weather like a casual spring dress, and have we got the selection for you. As temperatures rise, trading in jeans and sweaters for floaty one-pieces feels almost ceremonious. Whether that means stepping out to run errands in a simple linen shirtdress, or turning heads at a poolside cocktail party in a show-stopping designer number. As quarantine continues on, we’re itching to trade our loungewear for something more dressed up, and having a few pieces in our arsenal—even just to wear around the house—is one way to ring in the warmer months.


While this casual spring dress is mostly covered up, it is still decidedly sexy, thanks to a slinky silhouette and bra top overlay. Complete the look with heeled sandals and bold earrings.
