What: With head-to-toe florals (somewhat unsurprisingly) making their way to the spring runways, this turquoise tea dress encapsulates the all-over botanical statement -- which we saw in the Pre-Fall lines of Doo Ri, Pringle of Scotland, and DKNY -- without being overly busy and giving a nod to the overarching jazz age trend of Spring 2012 .
Style It: Keep the bright teal fresh with Carven's cobalt blue suede slingbacks, a girlish Miu Miu glass pearl-embellished bracelet, and, for a touch of glam, add a gold lizard-effect leather shoulder bag from MICHAEL Michel Kors. If you're looking for a little extra oomph, switch out the black ribbon waist tie for this Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti belt of woven suede and chain.
