It turns out that gingham, florals and pinstripes really are groundbreaking for spring. And these 17 Easter-ready dresses are proof. 

Close your eyes and picture yourself walking along the beach, a gentle breeze in your hair, the smell of salt and sand wafting through the air. And what are you wearing? A floaty, dreamy dress, of course.

While the humble, multitasking dress is as hard-working during the colder months as it is during the balmier ones, frocks truly come into their own once the sun puts its hat on. 

Given that the weather – touch wood – looks set to soar to sizzling highs over the long weekend, let’s give our dress game some well-deserved attention and invest in the sort of forever frocks that we can whip out of retirement year after year. 

Wear them with your favourite strappy heels for lunch with your family or with a bohemian-inspired pair of rope sandals for a leisurely mooch with friends. Either way, the diktat is clear: Easter is for eating as much chocolate as you physically can while wearing one of the prettiest dresses of all.
