J.Crew's New Dresses Are Shockingly Pretty—16 You'll Regret Not Buying ASAP


@tylynnnguyen; PICTURED: J.Crew Collection Invite Dress ($160)

I had some time before a dinner this week and decided to treat myself to a quick game of dress-up in the J.Crew dressing rooms. Not because I intended to buy anything, but rather just for fun. Little did I know when I pulled open the doors of the brand's Fifth Avenue store that I was about to stumble upon the motherload, otherwise known as dozens of new dresses, all of which are perfect for spring.

Though my reservation time didn't allow me to try on every freshly dropped dress, I did get to test-drive a few of them. From that, I can say with 100% clarity that you're missing out if you don't follow my lead and check out the selection, specifically the slip dresses, linen frocks, and sequin numbers, all of which could be worn for casual errands, brunches, or chic dinners out. Hell, most of the dresses below could be worn to any of the dozens of weddings it seems we're all invited to this spring and summer. But there's no need to blindly trust me. Keep scrolling to let the 16 dresses ahead do the talking. 

The neckline alone warrants a purchase. 

I have a deep affinity for J.Crew's floral-print pieces, and this dress is no exception. 

I'm a big fan of slip dresses with thicker straps. They give me Jen Aniston/Rachel Green vibes for some reason. This one also comes in orange, which is a trending color this season.

Oh, wow. This one is a true winner. 

Direct me to the checkout because I need this dress immediately.

This blue frock is made for your next Greek vacation. 

This was one of the dresses I tried on, and let me tell you, it falls so beautifully on the body and feels deliciously soft. 

Wedding-guest dresses are needed by the truckload right now. I just found you the perfect one to wear again and again. 

I just love a free-flowing shift dress that still looks elegant. You get the best of both worlds. 

I bet you'll grab this plaid number again and again this season. 

This is the kind of dress that'll make heads turn. 

Workout dresses are perfect for warm weather. They're cute and better at wicking away sweat than a traditional cotton dress.
