Someone who lives in a warm climate year-round or has subtle winters should find dresses that will work for them in the spring and summer to get more use out of them. It's also a good idea to find pieces that are specifically for the spring. These are items that have a design where you'll know it's perfect for spring but not for summer. For example, a long sleeve casual dress that stops way above the knee or a sleeveless maxi dress.
Just like with anything else, you want to find dresses that express who you are. So don't purchase a dress for the price or for the look unless you feel beautiful and confident in it. There's nothing wrong with trying new things or changing your look to fit the new you but if you don't feel beautiful and confident in it then you know it doesn't fit who you are.
