Look 1: Casual Dinner

This long-sleeved dress from H&M is a total retro look that's been updated for today. You'll be seeing tons of black and white this season and this print is perfect when paired with a mirrored bag from Tod's and silver heels. The dress is super-short, but the long sleeves balance it out: If you're going to show a lot of leg, it's important to cover-up on top.

Bangles: Bendel's
Bag: Tod's

Look 2: Cocktail Party

Futuristic trends were all over the runways, and this dress from Arden B is a perfect example of how to embrace the trend without overdoing it. It manages to look both modern and feminine, and is a great way to get some silver, a big color for spring, into your wardrobe.

Look 3: Beach Wedding

Ever wondered what you should wear to a beach party? Here's the answer: a long, printed halter dress like this one from JC Penney. It's an effortless look that's perfect for a wedding or party on the beach, because it looks great with flats and dresses up easily with glam jewels, such as these from jewelry designer Kacey K.

Dress: JC Penney $59
Necklaces, earrings: Kacey K

Look 4: Summer Weekend

This dress looks like it popped off the runway at Michael Kors, but it actually just popped out of your local Old Navy store. Get ready for a shift in styles: The little black dress is being replaced for summer with the little white dress. Eyelet is everywhere this season and, paired with an oversize raffia tote and gold flats, it's the ideal warm-weather look.

Look 5: Daytime Event

Diane von Furstenberg invented the wrap dress, and its appeal is undeniable. They're infinitely flattering, especially for women who are bigger on bottom than on top, and they're sophisticated enough to wear to the office, but pretty enough to wear out at night. This one, from Victoria's Secret, is a perfect day print and it's only $69.

Dress: Zara $99
Necklace: Bendel's
Bag: Louis Vuitton
