SPRING FASHION TRANSITION
The seamless transition from spring to summer is reflected in the subtle differences between the seasonal fashions, making the change in daily outfits occur more organically. Dresses are the most versatile articles of clothing during this seasonal shift, and their adaptability comes from their design as well as the accessories that complement them. Furthermore, rather than adhering to any trends, spring and summer dresses are timelessly fashionable.
Midi dresses are often described as best suited for both the spring and summer, their medium length alone denoting their balance and flexibility for either season. A tie-front keyhole midi swing dress is a particularly flirty, sultry iteration of its kind that is worn to such occasions as dates, brunch, and vacations. The button-down midi swing dress, while more casual than the aforementioned style, is still flirtatious in its own right and can accent the vibrancy of spring and summer when worn in bright colors such as yellow and red. Flowing cowl-neck midi dresses billow majestically in the warm-weather breezes, while polka-dot midi dresses with frilled sleeves exude the vintage aesthetic.
Maxi dresses, despite their great length, can also be worn throughout the spring and summer. Their long skirts serve the dual purpose of covering the wearers’ legs while remaining loose enough to be tossed by brisk winds of any season. Maxi dresses come in a plethora of styles, with various distinct features affecting each kind of dress’s wear ability for either season. Wearing tights and a cardigan with a maxi dress is convenient for the cooler spring days, whereas maxi dresses that are off-the-shoulder and have slits allow breathing room during more intense heat. Common on maxi dresses of all designs, however, are floral patterns, a mainstay of spring and summer fashion.
A more individualized assortment of dresses dominate the rest of spring and summer fashion. The halter neck vintage dress is meant to be worn in the summer, but its colorfulness and Classic Hollywood flamboyance also translates well into spring fashion. Millennial pink dresses of any design blend into the color palette of both seasons, and casual lace-up dresses are simplistic, relaxed weekend wear for the warming climates. Ruffled skirts are a feature present in all sorts of dresses, but those with plentiful, lightweight ruffles flutter the most beautifully in spring and summer winds.
Dresses of the warm, sunny seasons have an exceptional splendor, as their collective annual emergence is comparable to the flowers that bloom and thrive during such a rejuvenated time.
