Refreshed Fashion: 5 Pretty Spring Dresses — All Under $55!

I love these dresses!I love these dresses!Because we're transitioning from winter to spring, now is a great time to shop sales! My favorite way to bargain-shop? By doubling my dollar and buying dresses. It's a great deal because it's basically a whole outfit except for shoes, of course. Snagging that springtime-appropriate dress should be your first order of business this season! If you're unfamiliar with what's trendy right now -- or think you can't shop without breaking the bank -- you're in for a sweet surprise. I've cherry-picked some gorgeous dresses you can don next season, and, best of all, they're all under $55!

Here are my top 5 springtime dresses you can snag now:

1.) Striped Dress
Pair this dress with sandals in the summer and leggings, boots and a cardi in the winter. This small investment will go a long way! Not to mention this belted look is totally en vogue with the rope belt and vertical stripes.

This tiny polka-dotted look has such an effortless feel.This tiny polka-dotted look has such an effortless feel.

2.) Dotted Dress
This 100-percent cotton dress features flared sleeves and a pleated skirt. I love the mini polka dots because they're playful but don't go too overboard -- giving this frock a grown-up, not juvenile, look.

4.) Pastel Blue Dress

This pastel blue dress features a tiny dotted print fabric, a v-neck and a tie at the waist. Because it's loose and flowy, it gives the wearer a chic, effortless appearance. However, the belt prevents this frock from exuding a frumpy or otherwise lazy look.

5.) Pink Floral Dress
Embrace your girly side with this ruffle-sleeved floral dress.

And that pretty floral print makes this piece absolutely perfect for spring.
