Fit Guide: Lilly Pulitzer Spring

The latest delivery from Lilly Pulitzer's Spring collection went live on February 10.  I had the opportunity to try on a few of these pieces at the Tysons Galleria Lilly Pulitzer Store and am here with the full fit guide for you.  It's tough to shop online or by phone without trying on the pieces individually, so here are a few of my observations along with my favorite spring items to date.

The Briella dress in Flutter Blue Chin Chin is fabulous.  The stretchy Posh Ponte is so flattering and won't wrinkle.  I love the little cap sleeves that just cover the shoulder.  I paired with with an adorable belt with a grosgrain belt.  The dress is sized XS-XL.  I'm wearing a size small.  The dress is incredibly comfortable.  

The Nina Dress in Multi Chin Chin is a return to the Lilly Pulitzer roots that I know and love.  The print is so quintessentially Lilly and I love the lace detailing.  The dress is as comfortable as my old shift dresses, but has an updated shape that flatters.  The dress fits true to size; this is a size 4.  I did try on a 6 in this dress to see if I wanted more room in the hips, but it was big everywhere and the smaller size was much more flattering.

Here's the Laidley Dress in Neon Pink Metallic Boucle.  This dress is fabulous for any special occasion you'll have this spring.  The sheath dress is fitted and flattering, but not over the top.  Pair it with the matching jacket and it's a perfect look for Easter Sunday, a wedding, or other special event.  The dress runs true to size, but you may want to size up if you have a larger chest.  I'm wearing a size 4.

The Nina Dress in Pretty Pink Tootie is another one of my favorites.  The scalloped hem is precious and the bows at the back zipper are a fun and unexpected surprise.  SO pretty!  The dress fits just like the other Nina dress I tried.  Here I'm wearing a size 4.

The Posey Dress from Lilly Pulitzer will make you want to twirl!  The fit and flare silhouette is so figure flattering and is perfect in every way.  The skirt is fully lined and even has a bit of a ruffle crinoline type lining that gives the dress so much movement when you walk...or twirl.  The dress fits true to size.  This is a size 4.  The white Posey Dress would be gorgeous for a graduation.

I'm also loving the horoscope print and saw lots of people purchasing dresses for Mommy and Minnie matching look.

Without any doubt, my favorite spring print is Multi Pop.  The framed Sutton Square Scarf is an adorable work of art.  I'm not sure how I would wear a square scarf without hiding the gorgeous print, so I'm going to hold off for a Murfee or other item in this print.


  1. You are modeling some of my favorites! Love so much in this 2nd spring delivery!

  2. I did not think I would like the Briella because I don't like blue (just a personal hang up) but I DO really like the way that looks and the belt sure makes it pop. I might even have to add one to my collection. But my favorite is the Nina Dress it is wonderful. I love the lace. You look great in them all though.

  3. Bethany- You look fantastic and all of the pieces that you tried on look gorgeous on you. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. All of the dresses you modeled are incredibly flattering! I am so glad to see more appropriate lengths, so many things as of late have been so short!

  5. Love! Are are wearing the kitten heels from lp as well? How do they feel? I love a good kitten heel BC of the height difference between the hubs and I ad have thought about purchasing them.

  6. Hi Amy! Yes, the shoes are the new kitten heels from Lilly Pulitzer. They fit true to size and are incredibly comfortable. I had sized down in the resort wedge but wore my regular size in the little heels. The nude color matches everything!!
