Here’s What to Wear for Every Spring Occasion on Your Calendar
The tulips are blooming, the birds are singing and your closet is, well…it’s kind of still in winter mode. Which isn’t ideal considering you have several events on the horizon. No worries—just sit back, relax and take in our recommendations for what to wear to all of your spring occasions.
The Inevitable Baby or Bridal Shower
If any occasion calls for a fun, feminine dress, it’s this. And this spring there are three different components to look out for when it comes to trendy frocks: darling florals, square necklines and frilly ruffles. Incorporating any one of those details will ensure you hit the mark, but we say why not go for all three?
Patio Brunch with Friends
You can finally enjoy the sunshine again, and you’ve rounded up the crew to mark the occasion at your favorite outdoor restaurant. What to wear? A trendy faux-wrap blouse from Dia&Co. The V-neck and waist definition look great on all shapes, and don’t get us started on the statement florals. In fact, look to the brand for your entire outfit (like this chic light-wash denim to match). Dia&Co is a clothing subscription box that exclusively carries sizes 14 and up. Every Dia Box is tailored to your style, body and budget—they know what you’ll love because you fill out a style profile—and you only pay for what you keep. Just let your stylist know what you’re looking for and they’ll send you options to choose from. No pressure, ever.
A light pink suit is basically spring style in motion. Add a white tee and sneakers to soften the look so that it’s polished enough for a ceremony but not too business-like. That said, the sneaks can easily be swapped for kitten heels for a more elevated appearance.

Yoga on the Lawn
It is still spring, so sometimes you’ll need something to cover your arms, especially in the morning. When it’s chilly, a tie-dye pullover is the perfect choice. Yep, this ’60s-turned-’90sprint is back for a third round, and it’s a nice break from black-on-black workout gear. We suggest sticking to the two-tone variety rather than the whole rainbow; it makes the trend feel more grown-up.
Tired of your A-line LBD? Slip into something asymmetrical. A one-shoulder dress or top-and-skirt combo gives off stylish and slightly edgy vibes while providing an appropriate amount of coverage. Still chilly out? Go for a long-sleeve version. Warming up where you are? Sleeveless is the way to go. Are you catching on to the versatility yet?
