Ah, do you feel that? It’s the sun shining a little stronger, the plants starting to come back to life, the overall happier feeling that comes with warmer weather. We’re obviously excited — but it’s not time to slap on a swimsuit and hit the pool just yet. We have the journey through spring first, so let’s embrace it!
Shifting from winter to spring for Us is all about transitional dresses. We’ll leave the spaghetti strap mini dresses for summer, and in the meantime, we’ll go for these more sensible (yet chic) styles that won’t have us totally shivering on any given day. Check out our 11 current favorite transitional dresses at Amazon below!
Best for Brunch
This flowy maxi dress is so pretty and sophisticated, and we love how the neckline can be worn tied or open. Dress this beauty up with heels or down with sneakers!
Best for Lakeside Lounging
The striped version of this dress has a little bit of a nautical vibe to it. It also has a super flattering waistline, and we love how the midi hem and three-quarter sleeves are long enough to keep you comfy if there’s a cool breeze!
Best for Nights Out
This Amazon-exclusive dress is fitted with a cool cutout on the upper chest, making it a great pick for going out with your squad. The ribbed fabric will keep you warm as the sun goes down!

Best for the Boho-Chic Babe
This cotton-blend, floral-embroidered dress has been an absolute favorite of ours for a while. It’s so fluttery and whimsical!

Best for Dressing Up But Staying Comfy
Bridal shower coming up? Family get-together? This dress will have you looking like a million bucks with a pair of wedges or heels, but it’s soft, stretchy and cozy. The waist tie is so flattering too!
Best for Wearing With Boots
This chambray denim shirt dress is not only cute, but it’s timeless. This is a piece you’ll wear again and again — and it looks so good with all types of boots and booties!
