Spring Color: Embrace the Feminine Alternative to Black for Chic Evenings

We often fall to one tried-and-true color when we’re stepping out for the evening – black, right? We will always love black, but we certainly have room in our hearts to spread the love. And how could we not when the colors for spring are so beautiful and feminine? Whether you like cool blues, soft pinks, rich yellows, or a combination of more than one in a pretty pattern, this season is all about embracing the rainbow sherbet colors. There is simply no way not to smile when looking at, and wearing, these shades. And they work beautifully with all the neutrals you already own.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for amazing spring color for our favorite days – the casual, easy ones. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Oh, this Halston Heritage dress is just downright PRETTY and we are downright obsessed. Everything about it makes us want to go to a lovely garden party – or any party, really. The shade of pink is just perfect – sophisticated and modern. The belt is adjustable so you don’t have to worry about it being too tight or too loose and dropping below the waistline. It’s the perfect balance to the otherwise fluid chiffon that creates billowy sleeves that don’t overwhelm and a floaty hemline. In XS-XL, this is really a dress that works for a lot of women’s bodies, since it’s concealing in it’s coverage, yet still looks feminine and airy. It’s shown with black strappy heels, which absolutely works, but we also love how it looks with nude and rose gold. A pair of drop earrings and a delicate bracelet will complete the look.

Tashashi Shoji is known for their formal dresses that are made for ladies of all sizes – and they are never short on style. At first glance, this looks like a blue and white chevron stripe. But it is actually much more detailed than that. There is delicate netting between each pastel blue stripe that reveals a white lining underneath, which adds depth and detail that gives this dress such a luxe look. The fit and flare style, in XS-XL, accentuates the waist and helps conceal the hip area – as does the turns of the stripe pattern across the bodice. Nude or silver strappy heels look great with this, but you can have some fun and go with a monochromatic look that is so chic.

This Donna Morgan is just too cheery to ignore. And why would we, when it’s also a great fit and an equally great price? Using yellow in the leaf pattern actually gives the design a subtle balance, which keeps it from being kitschy. And the pique fabric provides rich texture. (Note: We are showing you a picture from Donna Morgan’s website, where more sizes are also available up to 16, to give a better sense of the yellow shade. You’ll see it varies based on the lighting in Nordstrom’s pictures.) The pockets in the flared skirt are so modern. This dress is great for an upscale picnic, a shower, or an outdoor dinner. With its bra-friendly straps, it’s ideal for all bust sizes. A gold sandal and some gold jewelry finish the look. If you are ready to make a bold fashion statement, go with the fuchsia version of the gold sandal.

J.Crew - Perforated Drapey Crepe Dress
J.Crew’s modern orange dress has an easy fit (in 000-16) and a stylish perforated fabric that can dress up and down with ease. The color is so chic – a great alternative to the candy colored pastels that are also so popular this season. And the v-neck and cap sleeves are easy and stylish. We like this dress best paired with a brown leather block heeled sandal and a coordinating belt - for an easy dinner out. If you want to dress it up, change out the brown leather for strappy gold sandals and a thin gold belt.

Jumpsuits are a great place to incorporate some seasonal color – no need to figure out what color top or bottom to wear with it. Of course, not all colors will work, but this medium blue from Diane von Furstenberg is rich and sophisticated. And so is the tailored silhouette, with front and back pleats at the waist to provide shape that works wonders beneath the wide sash belt. The short sleeves have tab details that look so fresh and give it a little urban edge. If you are more comfortable wearing a cami under the surplice neckline, go with a pop color like pink, and wear a floral heeled sandal to tie the colors together. The colors don’t need to match exactly - it’s the combination of color that is so right for the season and will be perfect for a nice dinner or cocktail party. Alternatively, a simple nude peep toe will bring a sophisticated finish to this jumpsuit.

Vince’s modern and easy aesthetic is on full display with this amazing silky maxi dress. It is one of the most stylish shirtdresses of the season, with its drawstring waist, side slits, and hidden buttons. (Petite ladies, any tailor can easily shorten this.) It comes in black and deep blue, but it’s the teal that is our top pick this season. It’s a super flattering color on all skin tones, and there is no disputing the popularity of blue this season. Of course, blue is timeless so this dress will be a go-to for seasons to come. We love a maxi dress that can dress up or down. Roll up the sleeves and use the tabs, pairing it with chunky peep-toe booties or sporty flat sandals for a more casual look. But you can dress it up for a posh dinner out with strappy metallic sandals and some chunky jewelry. The fit is typical Vince – relaxed and modern, in sizes XXS-XL.

Sometimes, a fun top is all you need to wear with your favorite white jeans for a night out. This Velvet top has great drape and even better color. The bold orange and graphic white pattern is effortless on its own. And it can be worn under a white or chambray blazer just as easily. Velvet’s fit is contemporary, and this style has a loose, easy shape.

We are big fans of Joie’s blouses and tops – the contemporary style and easy bodies are universally flattering and ageless. If you are a fan of Vince, and haven’t tried Joie yet, this sleeveless silk blouse is a great place to start – or to continue your love of the brand. The color is beautiful on most everyone, as is the easy silhouette…it’s bra-friendly, and has a subtle elastic hem, so it blouses effortlessly without looking oversized or slouchy. Wear it with white as shown, icy grey, or your favorite pair of jeans in any wash. It’s just as pretty on its own as it is under a blazer or cardigan. You can even punch it up with a multi-color necklace for some fun - remember, the color doesn’t need to match, it just needs to coordinate. You’ll see we’re directing you to Joie’s website – with free shipping and returns, you can’t go wrong with giving this one a try.

When you’re heading out for the evening, whether it’s for a dressy night or something more casual, taking a clutch with you is so much chicer – and easier – than carrying your big ‘ole everyday bag. Rebecca Minkoff’s envelope clutch is a stylish shape for the season that is big enough to hold all your essentials. And in leather, the price is amazing, so you can have some fun with color…without guilt. This mint is so right for the season. It looks great with all the neutrals – black, white, grey, tan, denim – and works with other pastels like lilac or saturated pink. You can even pair it with orange. It’s really quite versatile and a stylish way to add color to your outfit.
