Fun with Florals
Though it may not seem like a groundbreaking trend, floral prints have managed to be just that each spring with their ability to constantly change to meet the wants of the fashion-forward woman. After months of cold, gloomy weather, dressing in floral prints is a welcome reprieve from sweaters and the perfect way to celebrate the much- anticipated spring season!
A classic sheath with a touch of bohemian flair, this dress serves up delicate crochet accents. The scoop neck is perfect for showing off a gorgeous necklace and the bell sleeves are very on-trend with their slightly flared shape. We love this piece’s versatility, as it can be dressed up with heels for a daytime wedding or dressed down with a pair of flat sandals for a spring day in the park. This subtle floral pattern is also a safe choice for those hesitant to wear a bold print.

Technically not a dress, this top has the ability to become one flawlessly by layering over a plain sleeveless dress or by creating the illusion of a dress by adding a black tank and pencil skirt. A pattern for the modern enthusiast, this black and white floral print is an edgy way to wear the spring staple in a classic color combination and popular peplum silhouette. What’s also great about this particular print is its ability to be worn in all seasons. We guarantee this will be one top you reach for in your closet again and again!

Like a piece of art, this dress’s gorgeous watercolor pattern is sure to grab attention at your next event. All one piece, it provides comfort we adore with its wearability and soft fabric. With so many colors to pull from, it’s easy to add differently hued accents every time it’s worn, plus the black top is the perfect backdrop for a brightly colored necklace. The tie around the waist creates that ideal hourglass shape and lends flawlessly to the flared bottom.
Go ahead and twirl in this dress; it’s pretty much a necessity.

An idyllic shape for the office, this tailored sheath dress with its muted, dark print is a great way to incorporate a modern take on a floral pattern for work. It can easily be worn to meetings in the morning with a blazer and classic black pumps, but with a quick change in accessories, you can go to drinks in the evening without skipping a beat. It's also another print that’s versatile in the seasons it can be worn, the modern woman is all about getting the most out of her wardrobe, and this dress accomplishes just that!
