For those of you wondering what to wear when lockdown ends, we’ve found 23 spring dresses to get you excited about dressing up again.
In just a few short days, the clocks go forward – meaning longer days, shorter nights and finally, the beginning of spring.
As luck would have it, lockdown will start to be relaxed a few weeks later, so picnics in the park, walks with friends and outdoor coffee dates will be back on the agenda.
However many women are worried about what to wear post-pandemic. Roisin from Kent told us, ‘Before lockdown, I was religiously in jeans for work and leisure, so working out what to wear after lockdown is a real conundrum for me.’
Despite the fact jeans are more relaxed than ever, knitted trousers are trending and loungewear has never been more popular, many are dreading the return of restrictive and tight clothing into our wardrobes.
Spring dresses offer the perfect solution. Comfortable, loose-fitting and easy to wear, they take next to no time to style and as they’re so timeless, they’ll last forever. What better excuse to invest!
With that in mind, we’ve looked through thousands of dresses to bring you 29 of our favourites. For those looking to shop sustainably, there are vintage, made to order and eco-friendly options, while those on a budget will be pleasantly surprised too.
