Find a Silver or Gold Mother of the Bride Dress

Whether you rock them with sneakers or coordinate them with your favorite heels, cute spring dresses are about as versatile as they come. Still cold out? Throw on a pair of tights or layer a turtleneck underneath. Finally getting warm? Go bare-legged and add a denim jacket .

And while there are endless variations of colors, patterns, and fabrications to choose from, there are a few silhouettes to look out for to build a solid spring wardrobe around. The slip dress , for instance, has been one of designerso favorite styles to interpret this season, and youoll find choices high and low in printed silks and slinky satins. off-the-shoulder dresses continue their reign of popularity , with flouncy gingham options you can wear well into the dog days of summer, and trim knit versions that would look great with a pair of boots.

Even if your style skews more classic, youoll find plenty to love among the shifts and A-line stylesjstrategically draped waists, voluminous pleats, lace-up frontsjand for off-duty days, the T - shirt dress is (or at least should be) a universal crowd-pleaser.

Listen: The fit-and-flare is popular for a reason. With a trim waist and slightly flouncy skirt, it flatters a wide range of figuresjand in a modern print or classic color, there's no reason it has to look obvious.

We've sung the praises of this clavicle-baring style before, and our reasoning still stands. It's pretty, easy to wear, and looks just as good on a city sidewalk as it does on the French Riviera (well, almost).
