So, the holidays are officially over, and now it's just you, us, and a whole lot of winter. The good news? You can start prepping your wardrobe for spring — like, now. In other words, instead of turning to another woolly sweater dress, think about treating yourself to a layer-friendly frock that'll work now and later, like a drop-waist, navy-lace number you can throw a cozy sweatshirt over and then wear alone in June.
And, to make it easy on you, we went to every girl-on-a-budget's favorite shopping spot, Forever 21, and pulled 11 primo examples of the perfect winter-to-spring dress. Not only are these pretty finds super affordable (under $30, y'all!), but they'll also remind you that warmer days are on the horizon — and that's always a good thing. It's all about positive thinking.
