Best Spring Dress Combos

Would You Buy These Combo Dresses?

Lucky magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!


I like combo dresses—those ones that look like a separate top and skirt—because they fake a choreographed outfit in one toss-over-the-head-and-zip motion. They're sneaky in that way.

But when combo dresses have a really basic top, it bugs me. Like these ones above: they're essentially plain white t-shirts or button downs sewn into skirts. Since I could find a great white top for under $20 somewhere like Topshop, Uniqlo or Joe Fresh, I feel like I'd be paying an unnecessary amount of money for half of the dress. And then I wouldn't even have the option to wear those seemingly classic separates as, well, separates. That's annoying.

Instead, I prefer combo dresses like the ones below. Their top and lower halves are print-mixed and coordinated in interesting, eye-catching ways. To me, that's the whole appeal: it's the lazy girl's guide to looking like you actually put together different pieces.
