Spring Dresses For Women Over 40
1 Gingham Flutter Sleeve Midi Dress
You can never go wrong with a sweet gingham print for spring. This pastel pink is perfect for Easter or those casual spring weddings.
If it’s still chilly out (or cold in church regardless of the season!), pair it with a cropped cardigan for a little more warmth. A cropped cardigan won’t compete with the silhouette of the dress and will keep the fitted waist the focus.
2 Blue Floral Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is universally flattering to almost everyone. When fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg created this dress in the 70s, she knew exactly what she was doing.
It’s tie waist cinches and highlights the middle, the vneck is flattering to all and creates a lengthening effect for those with short torsos. The aline bottom is another universally flattering cut, especially for pear shapes.
Wear this blue floral number to all your spring events. Dress it up with heels and throw on a long trench coat for dressy events. Add a denim jacket and sneakers for more casual gatherings.
3 Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara Women’s Belted Wrap Dress with Flutter Sleeves
This wrap dress is perfect for petites who may want a shorter length. The print is spot on with spring colors. This dress would look good with a fitted blazer and could be worn to the office.
Just make sure your blazer doesn’t extend down to the top ruffle. A shorter blazer or cropped jacket will work better with this.
4 Prabal Gurung for JCPenney Short Sleeve Floral Shirt Dress
This multi color floral pattern shirt dress is perfect for your spring wardrobe. It’s cotton with a touch of spandex for a little stretch and ease of movement.
If you need an extra layer, or want to wear this to the office, a blazer works beautifully with a shirt dress.
5 Women’s Floral-Print Elbow-Sleeve Sheath Dress
Florals are always appropriate for spring. Wear this sheath dress for Easter and later to a garden wedding.
The cowl neck can help minimize a large bust and draw the eye away from a tummy. The elbow sleeves will hide any upper arm flaws.
If you need an extra layer, pick a long cardigan that falls close to the same length of the dress.
6 Linen-Blend Flutter Sleeve Smocked Midi Dress
Featuring a square neckline and flutter sleeves, this colorful smocked midi dress will carry you from Easter through summer. The colors are perfect for Easter and the linen blend will keep you cool during the heat of summer. Wear it with a denim jacket when you need a layer for cooler temps. A white denim jacket will pop against these colors.
7 Floral Puff Sleeve Mock Neck Midi Dress
Bold color but modest cut and neckline. You’ll still make a statement in this vibrant color. Reviewers say it has no stretch, so beware when choosing a size.
Top this spring dress with a tan trench coat or a long blazer.
At the end of the day, finding stylish spring dresses for women over 40 can seem like a daunting task, but with the right color, texture, and silhouette, you can create a fashionable and youthful look. Loyalty to classic styles will never go out of style, but do not be afraid to mix it up and experiment with edgy designs.
Remember to keep comfort top of mind and pick fabrics that flatter your body shape. So, go ahead and choose a dress that reflects your personality and make this spring a season of fashion confidence. After all, age is just a number and your style should be timeless.
