Pale blue mini, midi and maxi dresses will brighten up any day of the week

Posted by for Fashion

Pale, sky blue dresses are here to up your frock game for spring. 

There’s no denying we’re probably all dying to get back into dresses with bare legs. Imagine a warm spring day; the sun is shining, there isn’t a cloud in the sky and you’re about to meet a friend for a picnic in the park (post-lockdown). Dresses are the easiest way to get dressed for warm weather, and with months in comfy clothes, we’re all about ease. 

Whatever your preferred dress length – from minis and midis to floaty maxis – this season it’s all about making a statement with colours and prints aplenty. We’ve already made a case for star prints, then there’s fail-safe florals and bubblegum pink. Now, we’re adding pale, sky blue iterations to the uplifting mix. 

There’s something about the fresh shade that brings an instant smile to your face. It makes you feel as though spring is in the air, it brings the positive vibes and it’s a shade that also works well with so many other hues; from pastel pink and lilac to tan. 

We’ve rounded up the best pale blue dresses to liven up your new season wardrobe, and wear to every upcoming event on the horizon.
