If you look to stores as official guides for when to welcome the next season, allow Target to help you usher in spring. The retailer launched its new line of home products for shoppers to swoon over, and it just dropped its latest collection of must-have spring dresses. These pieces are a true sign that plenty of sunshine is on its way, but that's not even the best part. The real highlight is all of our favorites are well under $40.  

As cold weather becomes a thing of the past over the next few weeks, there is a distinct thrill in the air about wearing something other than your favorite jeans. What better way to switch up your style than with a brightly colored dress? After all, just like jeans, dresses can transition from day to night with the right shoes and accessories, and they're also great to wear when you want to feel stylish during days filled with outdoor fun. Target has the same idea in mind. 

The retailer's latest collection includes a range of styles, and this T-shirt dress is one place to start. You can style the $15 find with a jean jacket, white sneakers, and a hat for errands, brunch, or a baseball game. If you have a bridal shower on your calendar, shoppers say this $35 wrap dress is "such a good dress" and "so flattering." If you want to embrace '90s style, this vintage-inspired slip dress is the way to go, while this $35 ruffle sleeve frock is reminiscent of the popular "Nap Dress" at a much more affordable price point. 

Target dresses tend to sell out quickly thanks to their affordable prices, bright colors, and fun silhouettes, so you'll want to add these new styles to your cart quickly. "[The] material is so high end and well made, [and I] love the pockets and lining," said one five-star reviewer about Universal Thread's three-quarter sleeve eyelet dress. While another said the brand's balloon sleeve button-front dress is "very comfortable to wear all day" due to the lightweight fabric. Plus, it has pockets!

According to Target, spring is here—and it's time to start dressing like it. Because some styles are already selling out, we found the 12 best spring dresses from the latest drop for you to make shopping a breeze. They're all available in sizes XS to XXL, and you can also shop them in plus sizes 1X to 4X while they're in stock. Plan to wear these to everything on your calendar throughout the season, and then keep them in your rotation all summer long, too.
