Spring trend watch - Painted Dress

I am loving the painted dress trend that is growing around us. I first noticed it in bits and pieces during the resort shows. Then, more and more dresses walked down the Spring runways as if they had sprouted from Monet's gardens or walked out of Georgia O'Keeffe's budding flowers.

This fresh take on florals and abstracts really adds a feminine punch to a Spring season filled with grey tones, military moments and sporty silhouettes.

These are sophisticated, fashion forward and lovely. Enjoy!
