Have you noticed there’s a pattern? Yes, every spring I share at least one blog post about dresses. I’m still suggesting the simple styles I shared in 2021. Pattern dresses are getting added to shopping bags online now more than ever. The trick is picking a popular print that suits your personal style. Whether you consider your style ultra-feminine or classic, this year there is a spring dress that will suit your style. Start with a proven dress style that looks good on your body like one from this post about Little Black Dresses That Deliver.
PATTERN DRESSES | YOU CAN BUY YOURSELF FLOWERS
Florals are undoubtedly the most popular print right now. There are motifs and color stories that suit many different styles. If you’re a fan of bold prints and colors shop some of the styles like mine from Farm Rio. The Nordstrom 6 chose Farm Rio dresses as part of our May Drop.

Stylist Tip- If the neckline is too revealing try layering a coordinating colorful lace bralette that mimics the neckline of the dress.
