Best pink dresses for spring begin with passionate hues, lace, bows and soft drapey fabrics ala ‘Downton Abbey’ Edwardian fashions.
Here’s my list of best bets for pretty in pink spring dresses.
Yoana Baraschi Jardim lace dress found at Anthropologie in the Pearl and Bridgeport Village is delicate and feminine like a complex web of cascading blooms.
Born into a family of artists, Baraschi was formally trained as a sculptor in her hometown of Bucharest and her designs reflect her fine art heritage.
Blonde Pittsburgh Girl says, “I tried this dress on today and wow. First, the color is vibrant pink, not muted as it appears on my screen. It is a much nicer pink than shown. And the fabric is beautiful against the nude slip underneath. It will be a show stopper for those it fits. Picture does not do it justice.”
A windswept maxi dress in a divine pink color could easily be made to look like a dress worn by Lady Edith on the hit PBS TV series ‘Downton Abbey’.
Designed by Canadian Andrea Diodati and rendered in magenta-and-metallic clipped chiffon that floats, drapey maxi features, and flared sleeves with a surplice neckline.
Diodati became a master of escapism through art and she launched Electric Love Light in 2010 as a way to create wearable, year-round reminders of the summer's vibrancy.
Colwyn pink brocade dress designed by Tracy Reece and popularized by First Lady Michelle Obama is one of my all-time-favorites.
Reese presents her instantly iconic much buzzed about, lotus-approved brocade creation. Its beautiful sheen, flattering lines and contrast-scalloped hem are perfectly in step with all of your social to-dos from cocktail parties to dinner-and-dancing soirees to, ahem, nationally televised events.
Laundry by Shelli Segal lace shift dress found at Nordstrom is in a color so perfect it’s called paradise pink. Vibrant, hibiscus-patterned lace renders an enchanting shift styled with relaxed, elbow-length sleeves and trimmed by flirty, geometric cutouts. Accessories are nude and chunky. I love this dress and so will you.
Lilly Pulitzer® 'Briella' stripe fit and flare dress is sweet and lovely. The demure classic pink stripes enrich the retro-inspired silhouette of a darling, cap-sleeve dress structured by precise seams and styled with a slightly flared skirt for a sweet, feminine finish.
Nanette Lepore’s A-line dress in shocking pink sheer, mesh-like stripes add to the floaty feel of a stretchy scoop-neck dress with high-contrast trim and elbow-length sleeves.
Free People bouquet lace and rosette dress is ever so romantic. Flirty rosebuds abound as a lacy halter bodice suspended from ruffled straps above a textured skirt replete with lavish rosettes flowers.
The king of pink and pretty designer Isaac Mizrahi’s lustrous satin dress is made for a princess. The seamed bodice and plushy pleated A-line skirt gleam, and glow with a feminine self-tie bow, and back cutout.
Diane von Furstenberg 'Mateo' stretch silk wrap dress looks like a dress for Lady Mary Crawley even with the outspoken color called gardenia.
‘Downton Abbey’ soft, wafting silk folds into an ultrafemme dress finished with a cascading wrap front, sash belt and slit flutter sleeves.
RED Valentino bow waist jersey mini dress with crocheted lace trim on the band, bow-adorned waist shaping a pretty fit-and-flare dress with a deeply scooped neckline.
Absolutely darling for any lowbrow summer event paired with white sneakers on a bicycle ride across the Hawthorne Bridge or worn ballet flats for a walk through the Portland Art Museum.
