When it comes to my list of 2023 purchases, a chic dress ranks high. While pants and trousers have certainly been in the limelight this past year (read: cargo pants, tailored trousers, baggy jeans, etc.), dresses remain an integral part of our year-round wardrobes. They're reliable for work and the weekend, and they're always there to see us through a myriad of occasions.
Luckily, there are plenty of fresh styles to get excited about ahead of the upcoming spring season. To dive in further, I've scoured the spring/summer 2023 runways to bring you an overview of the most noteworthy dresses to invest in this year as well as what dress styles I'll be retiring (for now). From the freshest take on floral dresses to sheer fabrics and asymmetric silhouettes, read on to see what's in (and out) for dresses this spring.
