Ladies, it’s time to whip out the shaving cream. Enough though it’s still gross outside, spring is here and it’s almost time to show off your legs in the season’s cutest dresses. Since there’s so many dresses to choose from, we came up with the 11 trendiest dresses styles. We found a low-cost dress and splurge-worthy dress for each of the trends. So splurge on one, or go crazy and buy all 11 of the lower-priced options. Check out the dress silhouettes below:

The “Wave” Dress: Take our word for it, this is the new “miracle” dress. This colorblock dress has a curved contrasting panel that swoops across the front, creating the the appearance of a thin, hourglass shape. The curved pattern is perfect for almost every body shape.

The Peplum Dress: Since the peplum trend isn’t going away anytime soon, we suggest investing in the perfect peplum dress. Pick a streamlined, structured peplum dress that flatters you body type. Since peplum dresses embellish the waist, avoid crazy patterns and keep it simple and pick a solid color. 

The Lace Dress: This year, bright lace (even lace combined with leather) was all over the runways for spring. Take some inspiration from Tadashi Shoji’s spring collection and try out a bright-orange lace dress.

The Black & White Dress: Not a fan of bright colors and florals? You’re in luck. Designers like Proenza Schouler and Celine all showcased black & white dresses in their Spring 2013 collections. Try a mod black and white color blocked dress or opt for a simple black and white pattern.

The Shirt Dress: This menswear inspired dress is the perfect casual outfit for a spring day. Loosen a few buttons and you can easily wear the shirt dress from work to the bar. 

The Leather Dress: Leather isn’t just for the cold months anymore; warm weather leather is everywhere this spring. One of our favorite pieces is the leather dress. Take a lesson from Kristin Cavallari and go for a sexy, fitted leather dress.

The Fit & Flare Dress: The fit and flare dress is always flattering and in style. The dress is fitted through the bodice and then flares out into a fuller skirt. Give the dress a fresh new twist by going for a bright color or a bold pattern.

The Peter Pan Collar Dress: You can blame Kate and Pippa for this trend. Ditch the statement necklaces and try a dress with a Peter Pan collar instead. Wear this dress to a fancy party or pair it with a blazer for a more boyish look.

The Chambray DressThis spring, you can find a chambray dress almost every silhouette. The lightweight, casual chambray dress will be your go-to outfit this spring. Our favorite is still the classic shirt dress style. 

The High-Low Dress: A high-low dress is the perfect piece to help you transition into warmer weather. Plus, this asymmetrical hemline is feminine and easy to wear.

The Floral Dress: And of course, it wouldn’t really be spring without floral print dresses. Take the floral dress up a notch with these bold, saturated prints.

For more spring trends, check out denim vests, mirrored sunglasses and lucite jewelry.
