Spring has arrived and we’ve rounded up joyful dresses to lift our spirits.
If you’re like us, you may be distracting yourself this lockdown by browsing your favourite designer’s spring collections.
Donning a spring dress is the perfect way to say goodbye to winter and celebrate the arrival of the warmer weather. From floaty and ethereal to bold pops of colour, these are the dreamy dresses the STYLE team is coveting this season.
Ramie ‘Teddy’ Dress by Zimmermann
“Everyone needs a white dress for spring and I love the relaxed shape of this Zimmermann midi dress. The length makes it great for all occasions, sandals or white sneakers for during the day, or throw on a strappy sandal or espadrilles for those warm spring nights.” – Lillian McHugh, Integration Director
Marianne Dress by Penny Sage
“I love the colours and shape of this dress. It’s a really versatile design – ideal to wear either to the office with sneakers (when we get back to the office!) or dressed up with heels going out to dinner. The fabric is cotton seersucker, so it should also be easy to take care of – always a plus!” – Aimee McHugh, Administrator
Zero Waste Dress by Molly Perkinsons
“I’ve had my eye on this dreamy made-to-order piece from Mount Maunganui-based designer Molly Perkinsons for a while. I love the sleeves and low back, and the fact that there is zero fabric wastage is an extra bonus!” – Kathryn Chung, Concierge Editor
Solitude Cutout Mini Dress by Aje
“In my dreams I’ll have a spring soiree to wear this playful little number to, but for now I’m just admiring from afar. Obsessed with this soft pastel lilac and statement sleeves are definitely going to be a thing for summer.” – Megan Bedford, Beauty Editor
Concert Spliced Shirt Midi by Zimmermann
Cover Girl Dress 2.0 by Maggie Marilyn
“The light, bright azure colour of this dress feels like a breath of fresh air for spring. The strappy detail on the back of the dress is amazing. This is definitely a fancy dress for the season, perfect for wearing to a wedding or a special date night dinner. I also love with the Maggie Marilyn x Nelson Made shoes they’ve been styled with.” – Aimee McHugh, Administrator
Tilda Dress by Morton Mac
“This oversized smock dress is ideal for those relaxed spring days.” – Kathryn Chung, Concierge Editor
Forever Tunic by Juliette Hogan
“I bought a similar style last summer from Juliette Hogan and lived in it, so I have my eye on this dress. Its relaxed ease will be perfect for the low key season I’m expecting and it will be perfect to throw on with chunky sandals and be done!” – Megan Bedford, Beauty Editor
Aimee Silk Dress by Ruby
“This Ruby number is so pretty and made in sizes 4-20 which is very cool.” – Aimee McHugh, Administrator
