Spring is definitely in the air, and in honor of the return of warmer weather, we decided to round-up some cute springtime dresses. Whether you prefer florals or brights, we’ve found 25 dresses that fit every style.

Also, we know you don’t have a ton of extra cash to spare, so each of these frocks rings in at less than $50. Scroll on down to see all of the dresses:


Floral prints are a perpetual springtime favorite, so if you don’t have a flower-adorned frock in your wardrobe yet, get on it! Demure florals and daisy prints are really big this season, but any of the dresses below are ideal for spring weather.

Little White Dresses

A little white dress is a literal blank canvas – just switch up the accessories to create a multitude of different looks. To make your LWD truly stand out, look for unique silhouettes and standout details, like the ones pictured here.

There’s something so fun about rocking a brightly-colored frock, and the dresses pictured below will definitely get you noticed! Try wearing a bright dress with accessories in a contrasting hue for a color-blocked look or pair with neutrals for something a little more toned-down.

Just like floral prints, pastels are always popular come spring. Whether you opt for baby blue or peach, a pastel dress is a stylish choice for a springtime wedding, a nice brunch, or a graduation party.

Maxi Dresses

Many girls seem to shy away from maxi dresses, but they really are perfect for spring. Not only are maxis ridiculously comfortable, but all you need to do is throw on a pair of sandals to create a fashionable warm weather ensemble. The budget-conscious dresses below would look just as fab poolside as they would for a nice dinner out.

    So sorry for the lack of plus size options in this post! I think Boohoo, ASOS, ModCloth and Forever 21 have a bunch of really cute plus size dresses in stock right now, so I wanted to share a few of my under $50 faves.

    From Boohoo: this belted LWD and this bright pink skater dress

    From ASOS: this pastel blue shirtdress and this short sleeve floral print dress

    From Forever 21: this daisy print dress and this maxi dress

    From ModCloth: this polka dot dress and this floral print dress

    It was never my intention to let anyone feel excluded, and for that I apologize. I will be more mindful of including plus size options in future articles!

    Comfort is the key. Just one reason why I am a maxi girl. Oh Yeah, feel feminine and sexy when I wear them too. Really like maxi dress #4 and maxi #5 !!

    Ugh….so cute they all are. But unfortunately I’m now expecting so its maternity dresses for me. I’m just finishing my grad school and I still come to this site for awesome tips. Nothing wrong with looking stylish while preggers

    Same boat as Stephanie! I just got an $8 maxi dress from Forever 21 though – it’s got a wide elastic waste and a lot of fullness, so I’m hoping I can wear it for awhile at least – and if not, it was less than ten dollars so even a few months of use is great. I’m hoping to wear a lot of maxis this summer as I get bigger…nice and cool but still hopefully looking a little more put together than the rest of my wardrobe, which is currently mostly leggings + long camis + something on top. :P
