The Best Spring Dresses For Your Body — Period

You may be slowly emerging from hibernation mode, but things are moving fast on your social calendar for the next few months. The weather has a funny way of dictating a person's goings-on, doesn’t it? To help shepherd in the season, we’re prepping your closet with 33 gorgeous dresses that are just right for late-night walks, alfresco dinner dates, and beyond. Better yet, our picks are categorized by body type, which will make your personalized shopping a breeze.

We broke down 11 common shapes and outlined tips for finding a frock that feels tailored to yours — pairing apple-like bodies with printed shifts and carrot figures with high-necked silhouettes, for starters. Many of the pieces ahead flatter more than one type, so go into the slideshow with an open mind (and wallet, if you see something to want to shop).

Baring your legs for the first time might feel like a scary prospect right about now, but at least picking a perfect dress for the occasion can be somewhat stress-free.
