Yes, Miranda Priestly, florals for spring aren't very groundbreaking, but there's a way to make the popular motif look fresh: a new silhouette. While the "U Don't Know" singer arrived to the Vivienne Westwood runway show in a high-neck frock and asymmetrical hem, you can simply belt your printed garb or opt for exaggerated sleeves. Just make sure it doesn't look like your go-to A-line or shift dress.

Stripes can look casual or more formal, depending on how you style it. For an easy way to elevate the look, opt for a dress that features lines in two or more directions.

Now you may not be going to any red carpet events like the fashion influencer at Nine West's anniversary party, but at some point this season, you may want to don a sheer maxi. For a more textured look, try a micro-pleated sheer material or just something with embroidery on it.
