Under $100: Floaty Spring Maxi Dresses

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

There’s nothing like the return of Daylight Savings Time to get us all thinking about spring shopping. It may still be a little to chilly to start wearing spring dresses, but that just means that it’s a great time to shop for them!

This week we’re giving the “under $100” treatment to floaty spring maxi dresses from some of our favorite department store labels. Each of these dresses possesses the appropriate amount of relaxed flutter, plus a color or print that is right on trend for spring. Check them out…

Stripes are a perennial favorite thanks to their ability to conjure up a specific flavor of Parisian chic. A distressed denim jacket and flat boots would complete the street style look. Or, try sandals and chunky silver jewelry for a more polished ensemble.
