5 casual spring dresses to add to your closet

Now that spring is in the air, it's time to spruce up your dress collection! Not sure where to start? We've got you covered with five absolutely ah-dorable dresses that are casual enough to wear *anywhere*, yet cute enough to make you feel like the main character this spring.

1. Sweetheart dress

Aeropostale, $18

This dress radiates *total* cottage-core energy (we can already see ourselves wearing this while picnicking in a meadow...). Plus, what screams spring more than a floral sweetheart dress?

2. Babydoll dress 

Aeropostale, $22

This spring, we're *obsessing* over babydoll dresses. They're super comfy and adorable. You can throw one on for a night out, or you can layer with a tee for a casual school look. And have we mentioned their A+ twirl worthiness? 

3. Midi dress 

AE, $70 

Midi dresses are the best of both worlds—classy *and* comfy. Pair with a pair of canvas sneakers and the school hallways will become your runway.

4. Tie dress 

Altar'd State, $70

If there was one dress that we could wear for the whole szn, it would most definitely include bright florals. Not only is looking at this dress practically looking at a meadow, but the cute tie at the front absolutely completes the look.

5. Strappy mini dress 

Urban Outfitters, $50

Spring = colorful and bright, just like this mini dress! Pair it with layered necklaces and hoop earrings, and you'll feel like a pro spring picnicker in no time!
