The Best Spring Dresses From & Other Stories, Zara and Mango

Despite being a reluctant dress-wearer, I can't deny that the spring dress offering on the high street is looking pretty appealing this year. I think even my fellow dress-ambivalent fashion lovers might just find something that they're tempted to try this year. While there's the usual offering of ditzy florals and floaty prairie dresses, I've enjoyed the more tailored styles that have come to the fore, which feel a little more refined and so very grown-up.

The classic shirt dress is the perfect example of this, and most of the dresses that have caught my eye this season come with pared-back silhouettes, tailored fits and calf-grazing hemlines. I love how Mango has styled its denim shirtdress over flared jeans for a cool layered look and the way Zara's linen-blend dress features a chic twist detailing on the bust. I have also found myself drawn to more minidresses this March, as seen in this fab & Other Stories' pink piece and Mango's tiered mini, both of which are begging to be worn with cowboy boots and '70s sunnies.

But of course, if you can't get enough of the spring dress classics, there'll still be plenty of options for you, such as & Other Stories' green collared dress and Mango's picnic-ready gingham midi. Anyway, it's time for you to see for yourself the amazing spring dresses on offer right now. Scroll down to shop the best styles to buy from & Other Stories, Zara and Mango.
