Pink Button-Down Dress Trend

Leave it to the reigning queen of color Emili Sindlev to put pink button-down dresses on my radar for Spring. Once I saw her in this, I went to work searching for the perfect soft pink button-down at an affordable price.

I'm Crowning This Midi Dress the Perfect Date-Night Look - Oh, and It's $22 Right Now

There's something that always draws me in when it comes to a stylish ribbed-knit dress. I think it's really the simplicity of the fabric that appeals to me. It's as effortless as, say, a tank top, but when combined with the silhouette of a dress, you can merge the two worlds and create something flirty yet soft. Ribbed-knit dresses are also stretchy and can hug the body ever so slightly.

A few weeks ago, I started realizing how many midi-length ribbed-knit dresses and soft pink button-down dresses of all fabrics I'd been seeing on some of my favorite fashion influencers and decided it was time to find one of my own. And that I did. The Old Navy Sleeveless Button-Front Rib-Knit Midi Dress ($22, originally $40) is a mix of the styles I've been seeing online - pink with button details - and it's ribbed! It's shin-length and flowy, which gives you tons of room to move, and while it's two-percent spandex, the knit itself is thick so it doesn't hug your body in an uncomfortable way.

It's available in three shades - black, a gray stripe, and a soft peach - and it hangs beautifully! See it in action, plus my inspiration.
