Today’s Coveted Working Dress: Floral Jacquard Dress

It always makes me smile when a piece is rolled out in winter collections that’s bright, cheerful, and a reminder that spring is on the way. Granted, it seems like spring collections are already starting to peek their heads out on websites (I’m looking at you, bathing suits!), which just serve as a reminder that fashion is almost always several steps ahead of the game. The pops of color, shorter skirts, and the appearance of shorts certainly brighten up those dreary winter days!

J.Crew‘s Flame Floral Jacquard Dress does just that!

I love the print of the dress, and I absolutely adore its subtleties. Think it looks like it has a slight sheen from far away? That’s just a (smart) illusion of fabric–there’s a touch of silk in it that tricks your eye. Up close, the dress is beautifully textured:

Guess what? That makes this floral jacquard dress that much more versatile. Wear her to work, to conferences, or to drinks after-hours–she’ll be able to take you there, no matter what. And how could you not love those colors? I’m clearly smitten.
