This spring’s it color is… You guessed it, coral! And what better way to be on trend than by rocking some coral frocks? While you daydream about summer, these coral colored looks will hold you over. So since you can’t see actual coral reefs, settle for these adorable dresses. Check out this lineup of gorgeous coral gowns which are perfect for any occasion!
First up is this lovely color blocked dress from Ann Taylor Loft! Color blocking was reintroduced to the fashion world last year and is still going strong this spring. The mesh of cohesive colors is really fresh. When color blocking by mixing and matching solid pieces just make sure that they belong to the same color family like this coral and hot pink duo. It’d be weird to color block colors that are completely different like lime green and red. The splash of pink adds a unique accent to this coral sheath dress. It’s fitted nicely and looks absolutely chic. It doesn’t take much to style this dress, neutral heels and limited accessories are all it takes to rock this bold look. Metallic accents would also compliment this look nicely, just don’t add another color into the mix! It’s professional enough to wear to work but cute enough to wear around the city too.
Shirt dresses are a modern take on wearing your boyfriend’s oversized button down. They look very chic and very now. Take this coral silk miller shirtdress by Rag & Miller. It looks very put together, but still has that casual “I just rolled out of bed and threw this on” aspect about it. It’s cinched at the waist with a bow, fitting seeing as this is the perfect present for you! The black buttons are the perfect Segway into black heel and accessories. Plus it comes with tons of cute pocket accents. Adorable!
So lace and silk are arguably the best fabrics in the world. And guess what? This dress features both! Swoon! Just check out that detail, it’s so beautiful and intricate. Lace is here to stay and so is this frock. Don’t you adore how the color is so popular now, and lace has been popular forever? It’s both timeless, and trendy such an ironic combination. The scalloped hemline is a work of art and this dress as a whole is a masterpiece. Who says you can’t have it all?
For the edgier trendsetter, check out this coral mini dress from ASOS, a European clothing website with the coolest finds. The empire waist and quarter sleeve make it less delicate. The embellishments at the waist are just begging for metal accessories to accompany them. Shorter dresses such as this one are great for those warmer days and even cocktail parties. You’ll be up for anything!
In honor of the great designer Lilly Pulitzer who sadly recently passed away, I give you the Kaleb Dress in Island Coral. This t-shirt dress is comfortable and cute, great for a free spirit. It’s super cute how the sleeves are scrunched and it’s the perfect length, hitting just above the knee. Great for those girls who want to be comfortable but stylish! It can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with strappy sandals. Plus since it’s OK if the material gets a little wrinkled, it’s perfect to toss into your beach bag or suitcase! Summer here you come.
For more formal occasions such as Prom, there is no shortage of formal coral dresses! It’s a nice breath of fresh air from all those light pink and blue numbers everyone will be wearing. It photographs really nicely too, as you can see! The ribbon look on the bodice of this evening gown is just the right amount of glitz and the open banded back shows just the right amount of skin. Basically this dress is just right for a classy night out!
