Spring 2010: Five Dresses You Can Actually Afford
Mar 22, 2010
Spring is all about dresses. There’s nothing simpler than throwing on a colorful, easy dress and heading out into the bright, sunshiny world.
The warm weather frees me from the arduous task of coordinating outfits. I simply select a dress, a pair of shoes and some jewelry and head to work. I imagine that this is what it is like to be a man: easy.
Here are five essential spring dresses that can be purchased for under $125. Enjoy!
The Floral Dress
Every woman needs a pretty floral dress, even if the only place she ever wears it is to tea with Nana.
The shirtdress is a classic shape that is perfect for casual Fridays and weekend dinner dates.
The Racerback Maxi
This is the dress that I throw on when I head neighborhood errands or I need a pool cover-up.
The Brightly Printed Dress
While this print is a bit garish, it is this kind of bright, sartorial idealism that is perfect for spring/summer. It’s like wearing a sign that says, “Our national nightmare is over. Welcome Spring!”
The Basic Black Sheath
Every woman needs a basic black sheath dress. Pair it with a statement necklace or a patterned sweater and you have an easy outfit for those mornings when the alarm just goes off too early.
