Forget Chocolate, These 5 Dresses Will Make You Countdown to Easter

An Easter dress might not technically be a thing, but we're making it happen. It's a opportunity to see family and friends after all– so why not use it as a chance to dress up? With so many dresses dropping in daily, it can be tricky to sift through them all so this is where we come in.

We've selected the top spring dress trends that will make you look forward to wearing your new dress more than eating Easter eggs for breakfast. Seeing as we're all adults and they actually hit the supermarkets shelves back in February, we could technically do that any day of the week anyway – without asking permission. Great, right? 

Back to dresses. We've found the 5 trends that'll make you feel your most springy self. From Easter chick coloured styles bought to you by the likes of Arket and Rejina Pyo, to picnic blanket checks and the mixed print dresses that'll have all your favourite people asking for the link. 

Continue to shop the best dresses that'll see you through Easter gatherings, lunches, bank holiday weekends, and way beyond. 

Beautifully Belted

Monikh has some kind of magic power that makes women want to buy basically anything she wears—and this belted white Nanushka dress is no exception to the rule. It's all about creating that killer silhouette, no-need-for-accessories kinda look we all need in the mornings. You'll wear them on repeat throughout the year, too.

Sunshine Shades

There's no surprise Ganni has created yet another cult dress. How many is that now? We lost count at around 200, to be honest. Featuring this season's key sleeve shape (the puff, and one of the key colours, yellow), it's bound to be a hit. Sunshine shades will make you feel summery even on days when the weather isn't following suit.

Dreamy Denim

We can rely on the denim dress as much as we can a good blazer or a perfect-fit white shirt. If you go mini like Penny, opt for reasonably low heels to keep it suitable for all occasions. Note: They also look so good with fresh kicks, FYI.

Chic Checks

Twinning with your pal is no longer a fashion faux pas. In fact, it's a thing. Make like Maria and Helena and go for this Faithfull the Brand checked dress. There's something about a pretty printed dress that puts an instant spring in our step. There are tonnes of iterations from the designer and high-street brands, but we've picked our top three.

Mix 'n' Match

Of course, florals make us feel like spring/summer is in the air, but this year they're different. It's all about clashing different prints together in one fine dress form. It makes any dress look instantly expensive—no matter the price or brand. See below for proof. 

Next up, these are the seven dresses we can't stop seeing on Instagram this week.
