Spring in all its glory can be a surprisingly difficult time of year. One minute you’ll be sweating in the sunshine, the next you’ll wish you had brought a hat and a scarf with you. We think light clothes are incredibly underestimated when it comes to layering: you can opt for something covered up and just add a light jacket or pair a skimpy piece with a thick sweater, tailored shirt or pants. The material is key – you can’t go wrong with a crispy cotton poplin, but don’t sleep on innovative recycled polyester and nylon for a surprisingly breathable, soft feel. And even your favorite cold weather staple, the knitted dress, is just right for warm days. Here are 11 of our favorite spring dresses at any price:
