How To Style A Bodycon Dress in the Spring

Happy #FASHIONWEDNESDAY! It is a beautiful and sunny Wednesday morning here, and I am sitting eating breakfast with my husband because I am a procrastinator. #SOS. But really, I am so excited about this post because last week I saw someone post about how you can’t wear anything but flowy floral dresses in the spring because everything else is out of season. SO, UNNAMED PERSON, I AM HERE TO DISPUTE THAT CLAIM. I think you can pull off whatever you want in Spring, so I’m pulling out my favorite bodycon dress and showing you how, yes, you CAN wear this style during these springy months.


How To Style A Bodycon Dress in the Spring

Bodycon Dress

Let’s jump into this: a bodycon dress doesn’t have to collect dust in your closet during February-May. I chose a typically black and white dress with geometric angles because I felt it was the “least” spring-inspired outfit — basically I wanted the biggest challenge I could find.

STEP ONE: Pop of color.

This dress by itself doesn’t lend itself to look like spring, but it’s black and white so it IS classic. These colors lend themselves to being paired with just about anything. I chose a bright coral shoe for this reason. You can also pair it with a light pink, mint green, hot pink, light blue, etc….go crazy.

STEP TWO: Spring-ify your makeup.

I did my makeup with pinks, peaches and corals (in fact — you can watch my tutorial for this exact look HERE). I went with a more neutral lip since my eyes had a bunch of colors, but if I were to do this look again, I think I would go with neutral eyes and a bright lip that matches my shoes. I love love love the way that looks.

STEP THREE: Accessorize.

The necklace I chose for this outfit is a nod to the geometric shapes on the dress. They aren’t the same, but they are eclectic and disjointed, which contrasts nicely with the dress pattern. I wanted my shoes to be the single pop in the outfit, so the necklace I picked was black. You could always stick to neutral makeup and go with bright jewelry and shoes (10/10 would recommend).

I know today’s post was short and sweet, but I hope you learned something anyways. I love this bodycon dress, and it was actually sold by the same company that sent me the sequin bomber (check them out HERE). It is fully lined, super well made and the material feels solid. I hate clothing that feels like it is going to fall apart quickly!! I was extremely pleased with this brand. Their prices are really affordable, too (A+ in my book).

    While I’m all about flowy dresses for spring, that is totally silly to say that is the only thing to wear. This dress looks fantastic on you and can totally be rocked for spring!

  11. Cori | 8th Mar 17

    This is such a cute outfit! I can’t wait to wear dresses all the time again.

    I love this outfit! The pop of color makes it super fab! I hate when people come up with “fashion rules.” Everyone is free to wear what they want! ‘No bodycon dresses in the spring’ must be something that person made up because I’ve never heard of that lol!

  13. Christie Brown | 8th Mar 17

    I love bodycon dresses, especially when they’re styled on the classier side. This dress is amazing! I love who you’ve paired it with bright pink shoes; so chic. You look great, girl. 🙂

    Loveee the pop of color tip!! I usually go with super neutral bodycon dresses (since they are such a statement on their own) but never though to switch up the shoes!

  30. Mary | 9th Mar 17

    love the graphic print on this dress and how you styled it with pink heels!

    I like the dress on you. it’s not too much of a bodycon but it still gives the classy look.

  32. Chantal's Corner | 9th Mar 17

    I totally agree that spring is not just for florals. I love how you styled this dress and it’s perfect for spring!

  33. Rebecca Hicks | 9th Mar 17

    I’m loving the heels, and I agree… I’d go for a bright, bold lip color to match! I love that you took a dress that you don’t really see in the spring and made it bright and fun!

  34. Meghan | 9th Mar 17

    I love this dress on you. I am not too much on fitted bodycon dresses these days but this length is very classy!
