The 5 Hottest Dress Trends For Spring

Itching to strip off your wool sweaters and slip into the latest spring dresses? Uhh, yeah! Us too, and we’ve got your back! Thread host and supermodel Jessica Stam is showing off five stylish on-trend dress trends. Watch and see if you can guess which option is under $30!

The harness dress - Soft, unstructured dresses get shape and edge from the addition of leather (real or faux) harness details. To make this runway-popular look work for you in real life, opt for a dress and belt in similar hues and pair with strappy sandals.

Evening stripes - Forget boat necks and cotton tanks, the new stripe has a distinctively more sophisticated air in satins and silk. Try a mod shift with minimal jewelry and pointy heels for an outfit that's ready for a night out.

M-slit dresses - Forget the "Angelina" leg! M-shaped, thigh-high slits are so in. We love maxi dresses with dramatic slits, but be sure to balance all that below-the-belt sass with some coverage up top. Our suggestion: a scarf or moto jacket.

Subtle sheer
– See-through panels have all the nowness of cutouts with some much-needed modesty. A crisp, fashion-forward white cocktail dress with barely-there sheer panels and festive jewelry is a great nighttime option.

Far out Far East
- Whether accented with a mandarin collar, obi belt, or a vintage floral print, dresses with Far East-inspiration are totally chic. The detailing on this trend is often intricate, so be sure to go with a solid, classic shoe that won’t overwhelm the look.

So which one was under $30? The blue, M-slit maxi, available at Charlotte Russe!
