Spring's Coolest Dresses For Under $150

When it comes to curating our closets, we talk a lot about investment pieces and budgeting for a well-rounded wardrobe. While this is effective in the long-run, the changing seasons and consistent wave of trends add a temptation to buy, buy, buy. Luckily, spring's most stylish dresses are (surprisingly) accessible — seriously, you don't have to spend more than $150 to get your hands on some of the season's coolest pieces.
Gingham and stripes are still the reigning champions as far as prints go, but this spring, look for high-neck cuts and loose belts as subtle details that make a big difference. And groundbreaking florals? Yeah, they're still very much a thing. So, for all of the mini, midi, and maxi dresses that won't drain your bank account, click ahead. With all of that extra cash, you'll be able to reclaim those rooftop happy hour cocktails and stay on-trend.

Bold Red
Though we still love pastels, spring 2017 is looking a little brighter. Soon, you'll be finding fire engine and cherry reds flooding your Instagram feed. Don’t feel afraid to stand-out from the crowd with a color that’s sure to pop, but if you do feel the need to play it down, pairing the dress with low-top white sneakers is a sure-fire outfit win.

Unpredictable Florals
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Insert The Devil Wears Prada quote here. But there's a reason floral prints pop up every spring — they just work. This year, your favorite flowers are a little bolder than the past, so skip the fit-and-flare silhouette for updates like slip dresses and two-toned maxis.

Ah, a classic. With the sheer amount of off-the-shoulder tops and dresses we purchased last summer, we’re glad to see it’s still very much trending. It’s a universally flattering cut that looks playful and beach-ready, so pair it with some espadrilles and live out your Sorrento Coast dreams all season long.
