15 Daytime Dresses for Prime Women

15 Gorgeous Day Dresses

Daytime dresses have made a definite comeback. After wearing nothing but leggings or sweats for a year, no wonder. But dresses do have something in common with your leggings; they are very comfortable. You can slip one on, add a pair of sandals and be out the door in minutes. Dresses are also versatile. Whether you are headed to the office or meeting a friend for coffee, a dress can transition right into a dinner date.

What we love about this spring/summer collection is the longer, flowy look in every color and print. Yes, form-fitting, slender dresses are still in vogue, if that is your go-to look, but do consider trying on a new style as you step out for the first time in well over a year. The longer lengths also mean that you can get by with less attention paid to your legs. Slap on a little self-tanner, and you are out the door!

If you’re looking for a fresh new look this spring, check out some of our favorite daytime dresses. 

Shirt Dresses

While the shirt dress may have been inspired by menswear, there’s nothing masculine about these sexy dresses that show off your waist and camouflage your hips. Prints, checks, and denim are all great choices for a pretty little shirt dress.

Solid Colors

A solid-colored dress is a great option because it provides a great background for interesting jewelry, a printed wrap, or patterned shoe. You can take one dress and create several looks by changing up your accessories.
