Rush off to those spring meetings and cocktail hours in style with these cute dresses and tops. This collection has it all, from a silk bomber jacket to bright florals and a chiffon crop top! These designs are from the May 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

Flounce through your day in the feminine V Neck Flutter Dress with a deep V neckline and flowy skirt. It’s a versatile pick for your date nights or casual days at the office, especially in a day-brightening floral print. This dress looks equally chic in basic black.

_111

Bright patterned silk makes a Collarless Bomber Jacket totally feminine. Slip this jacket over all your casual outfits for a little extra polish. The ribbed cuffs and hem have traditional style.

_114A

A fitted satin Princess Seam Dress is equally sexy and ladylike. It hugs your curves just enough, and the paneled design is modern and flattering. Pair it with simple pumps for an elegant outfit for any dressy occasion.

_130

This Interlock Hem Blouse has an infinite look to it! The hemline wraps around and interlocks for a cutting edge shape. Catch even more attention with striped crepe fabric.

_126

Make a pencil skirt special with a grosgrain ribbon waistband and a floral print cotton sateen. Front and back darts hug your curves for a structured fit.

_106

Light up the room in this stunning Shimmer Dress. A body skimming cut shines in sparkly sequins to keep all eyes on you. A loose draped neckline shows off your face.

_127

Get the summer’s trendiest shape with this fluttery little V Neck Crop Top. Wear this short tank top with your favorite cutoffs or white jeans in hot weather. It’s gathered at the neck for a halter shape.

_131A

There’s no need for a collar in this Satin Blouse. The short sleeve cuffs and gathered shoulders give plenty of shape to printed satin. Make it and wear everywhere!

_129

Make jeans and a tee shine with this cool Knotted Keyhole Top in glittery jersey. The knotted neckline has a little keyhole for a peek of skin under the V neck. It’s such a pretty unexpected detail.

A little shimmer or bright floral can be just the unexpected boost of style you need to perk up a stressful day. These bold designs have that little extra kick to ace your meetings, or just give you confidence for a first date.

Happy sewing!
