Cute spring dresses for 2018 - 9 perfect dresses for all of your spring events

March 20th marked the first day of Spring, and while much of the U.S. is lacking the "springtime" climate, fashion has sprung forward and already has us scrambling for cash to buy that perfect dress. Between Easter, Graduation, and upcoming summer break, there are so many occasions for wearing a dress - and not just casual, simple dresses, but chic, fabulous ones too. 

This year, spring fashion is (predictably) centered around bright colors as well as pastels, florals, polka dots, and stripes. So there's a little something for everyone, so long as it's colorful and/or printed. Along with that, the basic silhouettes are of course acceptable, but this season, ruffles, tie/wrap dresses, "knot," and off-the-shoulder features are already dominating. 

The trends are all over the place this year, and as such there are tons of options to choose from.

Overwhelmed by the choices? Here are nine cute spring dresses that need to be in your closet ASAP. (But really, hurry, because they will sell out fast!)
