Flattering Spring Dresses for Women Over 40
I searched high and low to find an Easter dress for today’s post. I grew up dressing to the nines on Easter Sunday, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve shifted the focus of Easter fashion to the kids. I typically debut my white jeans for spring and pull a cute top from the back of my closet and call it a day, but this year I decided to get myself an Easter dress.
Our church is fairly casual, so I didn’t want anything too fussy. I also wanted something versatile enough to wear to some of the events I have coming up this spring.
This dress is so, so, so comfortable. It is rare that I feel this comfortable in a dress, but this one is stretchy and molds to the body without being clingy. It doesn’t ride up or stretch out or pull or tug anywhere. I simply love how it feels on!
The twist at the side helps define the waist, and the shades of blue are flattering on almost any skin tone. The length is perfect too. It hits right at the middle of the knee. For size reference, I’m 5’5″ and wearing a Medium in the Regular sizes.
I’m not a huge fan of the floral trend; I feel it ages me, but I do like this playful dot pattern.
These Nic+Zoe dresses are all available in Regular and Petite sizes, and you can wash them on gentle and lay them flat to dry, so that’s another bonus — no dry cleaning necessary!
I’m really excited to have discovered this brand. The price point is a bit on the high side, but when I find a dress that fits this well and is this flattering and comfortable, I’m willing to spend a bit more.
Here’s a look at the back.
I kept the shoes and accessories simple with nude pumps and my white twist-lock shoulder bag with the gold chain. Then I added gold hoops and a gold cuff bracelet. I tried on a few necklaces but decided the print of the dress is busy enough without complicating matters.
