Say Hello to the 5 Dresses You Need to Invest in for Spring

First glimpse of the sun and we're ready to ditch our layers in favour of the most versatile one-pieces: dresses. Name any occasion, and there's a dress for it. And one of our favourite hobbies (yes, you can call it that) is perusing the new-in section at NET-A-PORTER for styles that are bound to reach cult status. It's a task, though, with so many impressive styles all in one spot. But we've managed to narrow it down to five dress iterations we know everyone will be wearing from spring through summer. Can you guess which dresses made the cut?



This Zeynep Arcay knit midi in pink is ticking off so many trends. 

Of course, dopamine dressing is high on the agenda, with yellow dresses delivering a sartorial hit of vitamin D and making their way to our number-one spot. Then there are minidresses with maximum impact (think puff sleeves and frothy hemlines) from the likes of Zimmermann and Reformation, brands that make the trend feel more wearable than their Y2K counterparts. Add to this list crochet styles fresh from the latest Loewe x Paula's Ibiza collaboration, and you have yourself a clear guide to the hottest dresses worth investing in. Shop our NET-A-PORTER spring dress edit right now—we all know the best styles don't stick around for long.

1. Vitamin-D Dresses

So light and easy to throw on at the beach, the bar and everywhere in between.

Yep, knit dresses work for summer, too. 

It's 360-degree perfection thanks to the open back.
