TGIF! This weekend: discover the fun and playful elegance of dressing in relaxed, modern, and ultra feminine dresses. Our edit of this season’s prettiest latest arrivals makes effortless weekend dressing—head-to-toe graphics via pastel imbued dresses, loose tailoring, and sharp accessories—look effortless. Easier said than done, you say? Sure, it’s been a long workweek, and while your first inclination may be to clock-out, check-out and chill out à la swapping-out sleek tailored workwear suiting for comfy cashmere lounge looks, take a moment to consider the benefits of a spring dress: whether you’re making a statement or want undemanding versatility, a dress always delivers. Don’t worry, we’ve done the work so you don’t have to. Here’s our guide to the only four key weekend dresses you need now.

Usher in the weekend early and wear a coyly corporate grey wool plaid (with a pop of pastel yellow striped-in!) cutout pinafore dress by ALEXACHUNG . Style it with a pair of polished black leather cutout Rylee boots by Chloé for maximum impact and asophisticated way to wear casual Friday frocks the cool way. Look like you’re putting in extra hours by layering over ALEXACHUNG’s matching plaid double breasted coat. It’s a top performer when it comes to to-and-fro office outerwear.

For the weekend, make the most of your days off, and don a carefree spirited lemon-hued silk scoop neck dress by Sies Marjan for brunch and gallery hopping with the girls. Romantic, dramatic and thoroughly modern—these are the key attributes for this season’s elevated off-duty attire. Just add The Row’s Coco leather and satin mules and a dainty top handle bag like small Shella bag by LHD made in collaboration with Heimat Atlantica, and voilà! While this dress can also seamlessly transition from day-to-night, for Spring nights and weekends, opt for Christopher Kane’s gingham organza dress. It’s Saturday night live! The ultimate transitional Sunday segue? An exaggerated Shane tiger-print velvet coat by SSS World Corp.. This classic single-breasted style works best over a loose gauzy contrast print like Saint Laurent’s Italian silk polka-dot pussybow dress—animal prints and polka dots will go with everything. Layer in a hoodie to your look as tepid days turn cooler. We’d say, the weekend shift just got a whole lot better. Shop the weekend edit now.
