Spring Has (Almost) Sprung

Mary Katrantzou Top

After wearing a Sicilian floral-inspired skirt to host an event at Dolce & Gabbana’s store this week, I am ready to brighten up my end-of-winter wardrobe with some flower power. Here are the 10 items on my shopping list.


I wore this collar necklace to the Dolce & Gabbana event and it was, of course, a hit!

The woman responsible for making women mad about prints is a go-to for transitional spring attire.

Normally I am a Neroli girl, but lately I have been gravitating towards floral fragrances. The packaging of Roger Vivier’s collaboration with Ines de la Fressange is as pretty as the scent, itself.

New York-based designer Tanya Taylor is becoming one of my favorites—this graphic, floral dress exemplifies why I’ll be wearing her pieces this spring.

These pretty floral flats make me regret that I gave up shopping for Lent.

Dolce & Gabbana flats, $695,


Erdem is best known for his floral pieces—for good reason. I can never have enough.

Erdem pants, $798,


A good pouch can do double duty as a clutch. This one by Rebecca Minkoff can even be personalized.

In some cities it’s not too early to go swimming. This floral suit is the perfect piece of spring swimwear.

Sweatshirts seem to be the sweater of choice around the office these days. I love this interpretation of florals by Christopher Kane.

Prada always makes a version of these leather bracelets each season, for Spring 2014 the flowers feel slightly more tropical and the rhinestones are a great touch.
