I'm a Dress Obsessive, and These Are My Favourites for Spring

Emma Spedding

Floral tea dresses and lightweight printed wrap dresses are hardly groundbreaking, but these throw-on styles always sell out at record speed. This spring is no different, as pretty dresses will continue to be cult items thanks to the likes of Ganni, Cecilie Bahnsen and Rixo. There  are some new dress trends added to the mix this spring too, with an emphasis on little white dresses, green satin midis and oversized puffy sleeves. 

Speaking of patterns, polka dots aren't going anywhere—you can expect to see as many spotty dresses in the wild around the UK as you did last summer thanks to that Zara dress. New-in sections are being inundated with these key spring dress trends, but you don't need to wait for the weather to turn to wear them. Pair with chunky ankle boots or trainers and you can wear all the below dresses right now.
