Even if you’re not a girly girl the rest of the year, there’s something about spring that makes you just want to look pretty in a perfectly feminine dress. There’s no better holiday than Easter to wear one of these candy-colored fit-and-flare dresses, but that doesn't mean you can't wear one of these looks all season long.

Outside it may still be showers, but flowers are blooming on the red carpets. Eva Mendes gave in to her sweet tooth in a lemony lace Valentino confection with pink and white flowers on the bodice at the Vogue Eyewear launch. Emmy Rossum went for vintage appeal in a rose-covered Oscar de la Renta dress with a classic full skirt and sophisticated square sleeves. At the Grammy Awards, Alexa Chung went full-on girly in a ditsy print Valentino Red dress with spaghetti straps and a midi-length circle skirt. Not all spring dresses have to be delicate, as Bella Thorne showed at the jcp pop-up event in her blue and green flowered skater dress with a collar and T-shirt effect. Nicola Peltz did seasonal glamour in Christopher Kane at the Bates Motel premiere—her floaty fit-and-flare dress featured an abstract pattern that brought to mind spring skies.
