What: This vintage print dress in aqua and white from Nat Kaplan (a label that ceased production circa 1986) is a light, airy spring wardrobe addition -- given that bold, flowery textiles, and abstract patterns were a tentpole trend for 2012 spring and resort lines.
Designers including Kate Spade, Stella McCartney, and Balenciaga showed colorful, playful prints, and this dress' take on watery waves reminds us of van Gogh's Starry Night swirls.

Style It: Since the print is the focal point of the ensemble, we've styled the dress with accessories in muted pinks and dusty lavender. Alexis Bittar's hinged Otto bracelet in vermillion gives the look a hard edge while adhering the the dreamy palate, complementing the orchid J. Crew suede ballet flats and the nude patent leather Valentino satchel. Top the look with a Linea daytime cloche and you're ready for a day of museum wandering.
