Dresses To Take You Into Spring

Have you reached that tipping point where you’re done with winter dressing? This is the time of year when I start Googling pastel manicures, hunting down bunches of daffodils, and resuming my annual search for the perfect spring dress.

It may not be warm yet, but I’m thinking about bright prints and lighter fabrics for sunnier days ahead. These are pieces that you can pack in your suitcase if you’re escaping February weather with a getaway now, or throw on with a light layer for future springtime plans.

Whether you’re seeking out something for a casual weekend brunch or your best friend’s baby shower, here’s your first look at spring dresses landing on the SF site, for everyday and every occasion.


Ultimate Boho Maxi

This is one of SF’s bestselling dresses, now in a stunning new print that’s perfect for this season. Flattering and feminine with lace details, this would be a good choice for a family lunch, weekend break or festival. Shirring gives this maxi a vintage vibe, and it looks incredible with sandals, boots or trainers.

The Cara Cutabout

Love the stylish knot detail on this geometric-print dress, so flattering on the bust area. This one has pretty capped sleeves and a high-low hem, which means the skirt hangs beautifully. Try pairing with some fresh white plimsols, boots or sandals.
