Dresses are making a statement this spring. Whether you’re shopping for a pretty Easter look or a one-and-done outfit, you’ll find fresh new favorites including romantic maxi dresses, easy shift dresses and even fun jumpsuits. Get ready for must-have patterns, trendy jackets and shoes for every comfort level along with great advice from our stylists on bringing it all together in effortless style. They love dresses, too!


Maxi Dressses

Long on style, the maxi dress just makes you want to twirl. Whether you add a jacket or cardi for Easter brunch or wear it solo on the weekend, there’s no shortage of ways to style the romantic maxi dress for any (and every) occasion.

Where do you wear maxi dresses?

“You’ll see me wearing a maxi to special events, like a wedding or Easter, or on my day off as an easy throw-on outfit. For me, a maxi dress is a wardrobe staple — it’s the perfect item to showcase my personal style.” – @micah.nicoleb

What are some tips for styling maxis?

“If I’m going out with the girls, I’ll style a casual maxi with a denim jacket and sandals. For a wedding, I’ll pair it with nice jewelry and heels. I’ll also layer a maxi with a blazer if I need a quick way to look put-together!” – @cmounivong

What shoes do you wear with maxi dresses?

“WEDGES! I think they’re more comfortable than heels. Cute sandals or flats can elevate your look as well!” – @curcha.on.the.catwalk


Embrace the one-and-done look that’s a fun alternative to a traditional dress — perfect for casual spring gatherings, coffee with girlfriends or strolling the streets on your spring getaway.

Are jumpsuits for everyone?

“As someone who was terrified of jumpsuits, my advice is…just try one! BONUS: jumpsuits make your legs look longer!” – @curcha.on.the.catwalk

What are some tips for styling jumpsuits?

“Keep your look simple. Adding too many accessories or layers can take away from the jumpsuit itself. But I do love wearing a knotted tee as an unexpected topper!” – @cmounivong

How do you accessorize jumpsuits?

“Wear a trendy shoe, try a fun lipstick, or choose a jumpsuit that already has cute details like oversized buttons. I also love partnering a jumpsuit with a jacket or kimono.” – @micah.nicoleb

Shift Dresses

With its body-skimming fit, the shift dress is a flattering and versatile style for workdays or any day. Simply add a jacket for the AM; then show some shoulder after hours.

What’s great about 24/7 shift dresses?

“First of all, they’re priced at $24!?! Plus, they’re so versatile! You can wear them solo or pair with a denim jacket or blazer for a date night or special event. I also love adding a kimono to give it a more summery, flirty vibe.” – @micah.nicoleb

How do you style shift dresses?

“Wearing a simple striped dress and adding a floral kimono or blazer can make an outfit 10x better. I usually wear a solid-colored shoe when I mix patterns so my look is trendy but not overwhelming.” – @cmounivong

Floral Dresses

Here’s to flower power! Pretty florals are a trending print this season. From twirl-worthy maxis to easy shift dresses and flowy kimonos, get ready to bloom in our freshly picked favorites.

How do florals make you feel?

“Insert heart-eye emoji!! I’ve never met a floral I didn’t like. They’re so romantic and timeless, but can also be edgy. This season, most of my wardrobe has a floral print on it!” – @curcha.on.the.catwalk

Can you mix florals with other patterns?

“Yes! You’ll see me wearing florals and stripes together on a weekly basis. But when I mix patterns, I make sure one is subtler than the other and wear a simple shoe.” – @micah.nicoleb

    Hello. I am Shawna, a shy, closet crossdressing man. I recently went to a Maurices store in Augusta Maine. The sales ladies working there were so friendly and accepting of my dressing. I was able to shop around in peace with no judgement! I love this store and the friendly women who work there! I bought this pretty dress and tried it on in the changing rooms. Here’s me in my pretty dress!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/87c3e3e450ac2d4131d324b42bb8bd86502cbac9e135b906ab6b5b7c69dd26df.jpg I felt so welcome and will definently be returning to shop some more, and chat with the very friendly staff!! 🙂
