As our old friend — warm weather — peeks through the clouds, it seems we are all beginning to feel a little excited, if not relieved. Not only because this marks the end of what seemed like a particularly cold winter in Hong Kong, but also because we can now officially start planning our spring wardrobes. And as we lift off the layers, we also lean on bold and bright colours to lift up our spirits. From fiery reds, brilliant blues, and vibrant saffron, here are this season’s seven most eye-catching dresses for spring.
Self-Portrait Fuchsia Cotton Poplin Dress
Cut from cotton poplin, this long flowy fuchsia dress is detailed with frilled sleeves and the cutest tie open back. It’s fitted at the waist before falling into the full panelled maxi skirt, making the style flattering and perfect for sitting pretty in pink at long leisurely brunches in the sun.

As if we needed another excuse to wear exaggerated sleeves, this Betty dress is simply gorgeous in a lively and herbaceous green that makes for a striking look, day or night. The dress also features an assortment of handmade buttons for a sophisticated yet unique style and convenient zip back.

Gabriela Hearst Saffron Wrap Dress

Sies Marjan Sapphire Blue Satin Dress
Rich and glossy is the name of the game here and this cool sapphire blue dress in hammered-satin is the standout dress to make heads turn. A softly draped neckline lets the figure-skimming silhouette of the dress shine, and will make you shine during those balmy evenings too.
