It’s set to be 75 and sunny today – FINA-FREAKIN-LLY!!! It finally feels like spring is springing up in Pennsylvania, and I am here for it. I grabbed some affordable Amazon spring dresses, I’m summoning more sunshine for the season, and I’m ready to live in feminine florals and smocked gingham for the new few months. 15 personal favorite options are below, all of which I own and can recommend firsthand; there’s a mix between more casual options and special event-worthy dresses, so whether you’ve got errands on the calendar or are knee-deep in shower season (bridal showers, baby showers, etc), there’s something for everyone.
BUT FIRST, I must mention this gingham dress with smocked sleeves. It’s an immediate favorite; such a flattering fit, great length, and pretty detailing that makes it really stand out. As soon as Mimi saw it before we took pictures, she was raving – it’s just SO pretty, from the tiering to the smocking! And, at not even $25 (!!!), it’s a true steal of the season.
**Editor’s Note: This Amazon spring dresses post was originally published almost exactly one year ago today – but we’re bringin’ it back since most (slash all?) of these fun frocks are still in stock + priced great for the season! PLUS, I featured a few in this week’s Amazon livestream AND there are a handful of bump-friendly options in the bunch, so figured it was a timely thing to resurrect from the archives. 😉
Beyond that, shoutout to this beautiful leather bag – I lovelovelove it as a classier, lighter option for spring/summer occasions. It’s a beautiful, classic shape that also happens to be very trendy right now, and I love that it instantly elevates a look without any metal or sparkle, making it a bit more versatile, too.
These braided sandals are a favorite from two years ago that I’ll be wearing on repeat yet again; they’ve got the same vibe as these Steven Madden sandals, but cost a bit less, and most noteably, they’re SO STINKIN’ SOFT. Zero rubbing or blisters, just such a soft material that flexes with your foot, with a dainty gold chain detail woven throughout for a special touch.
Beyond the smocked gingham dress (which I hope is already in your Amazon cart, because YES), here are 15 more Amazon spring dresses worth adding to cart this month.
I think this falls under the “mumu” category that’s been so popular on Instagram the past few seasons – and understandably so. It’s flowy and feminine, breezy and beautiful, with a drawstring at the waist for the most flattering fit. Lovelovelove the not-quite-maxi length to show off your cute shoes, too! (I’m wearing this to a baby shower this month – such a perfect spring dress!)
A great option for literally ANY occasion on the calendar, be that a spring shower or wedding, first communion or baptism, or just a nice Sunday brunch. It’s a bit more conservative, too, making it a great family-friendly option.
OK OK SO this one is the *only* one above the $40 price threshold – but rightfully so. This flowy tiered number is from Amazon’s own in-house line, The Drop, and again features a not-quite-maxi length great for showing off shoes or pairing with flats instead of feeling locked into wedges or heels for height. It’s simple but chic – I wore it as a guest on TV last summer and it was a hit!
A personal favorite to pair with little white sneakers (or tennis shoes? What do you call them?). Great swing and quite a few color/print options to choose from!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS sale price?! I cannot. I wore this smocked gingham dress to a winery with my girlfriends and it was actual perfection. Another not-quite-maxi option with pretty tiering to break up the gingham, and the smocking up top is equal parts flattering and comfortable. A chic spring dream!
A more casual option, this midi has a fun slit up the side to spice things up. Great to pair with sneakers + a baseball hat!
Get this little number if you’ve got a summer wedding on the schedule or ANYTHING tropical – it’s too good to pass up! Such fun swing + flow makes it a great one on any dance floor. 🙂
A bit different but SO cute – this off-shoulder option has smocking on the bottom half for a reaaaaally flattering fit around your bum – or even baby bump!
Pair this pretty tiered t-shirt dress with sneakers to dress it down and keep things casual. It’s got pockets!!!
Back at it again with the mumu…I simply lovelovelove this dress. I really like the berry accents in this particular colorway that I own, but it’s got so many fun colors and bright prints to choose from, you can’t really go wrong!
For my linen-loving gals, this flutter sleeve babydoll dress is too cute. A great one to wear to the office, but then take out to happy hour after!
The colorblocking, the tiering, the flow all tied with a bow around the waist…actually obsessed with this one. I can’t wait to wear it out – it would work for everything from the office to date night and even a social event like a bridal/baby shower or more casual wedding!
Literally wearing this one as we speak (or as I type? Ha!). It’s a GEM from Amazon’s Daily Ritual line…a squishy-soft material that feels like jammies to wear. Comes in quite a few colors; I’m currently wearing it with Converse and a baseball cap, but you can throw on a blazer + pumps for the office, too. Also, bump friendly – bless up for the mamas-to-be. Under $25 find with over 5,000 rave reviews – carpe diem!
The mumu, but make it shorter and add sleeves. This bright teal/purple combo is SO FUN for the season, especially since “the brighter the better” seems to be the motto! And the best part? Not even $20 right now.
