Spring is on the way! It's time to ditch the sweatpants and wear some cute dresses (at least sometimes). We've all been living in sweatpants for the past year, but why not switch things up with a dress? Especially since the whole outfit is just a single item. The simplicity of just wearing one piece of clothing cannot be overlooked. And the good vibes that come with a floral print maxi dress or a sweatshirt dress are exactly what we all need right now.

Are you looking for another reason to shop for dresses? Anthropologie is donating a portion of all dress purchases to benefit the She's the First, a non-profit organization that that fights gender inequality through education.

Spring out of your sweats and into a new season with some of our favorite dresses from Madewell, Nordstrom, Missguided, Lulus, Anthropologie and PrettyLittleThing.
