These 5 Dress Trends smell like Spring Spirit

Floral patterns, romantic frills and cotton candy pink… the new dresses bring a breath of fresh air to your wardrobe and a fair dose of spring fever.

Even if the weather is still somewhat unpredictable these days – spring time is long since in our minds. Everybody is sick and tired of woollen jumpers and winter boots. Are there any better arguments than light fabrics, colours that remind us of fresh fruit or flowing silhouettes that flatter our body to put us in a sunny mood?

The 2017 summer season has extremely beautiful dresses in store: dresses with scattered flowers or frills, maxi- dresses with colour blocking, the trend colour pink and some wonderful ethnic looks. And here’s our top 5 of the most beautiful spring dresses:

 

1. Flower Power

Just like sandals and ice cream, floral prints are a must in the warm time of the year. And this season has many variations in store, like beautiful ruffled maxi models bringing back the 70ies, or romantic wrap dresses with plunging necklines. But simple and clean shaped jersey dresses meet with floral prints this summer too. Regardless the style of your choice – flower dresses perfectly match with a biker leather jacket as well as with your favourite jeans jacket.

2. Frills

It’s the big return of frills this season. Whether opulent or subtle – frills as far as the eye can see.  Frilled dresses are feminine and versatile. Depending on your style preferences, whether in combination with sneakers or high heels, and depending on the number of frills they carry, these dresses are suitable for the office as well as for the beach party.

3. Color Blocking

Geometric patterns and striking colour contrasts – colorblock dresses not only put you in a colouful mood, they’re also optical body stretchers by flattering your body depending on the arrangement of colours and patterns.

4. Candy Cotton Pink

Some simply love it; others are just not particularly fond with it: the colour pink. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the most popular colours this season. When it comes to pink, we see flamboyant shapes like one shoulder dresses and romantic lace varieties as well as sporty shift dresses. Thus, there’s something for any taste and preference.

5. Ethno

With folkloric patterns, Aztec and ikat prints, elaborate embroideries and striking colours the ethnic dresses of the season rouse our wanderlust. Leather sandals, espadrilles and raffia bags make them a perfect look.
