Spring Fashion: An Explosion of Print

We found stripes and florals and tie-dye among top designers' mostly virtual 2021 spring runway shows. And we loved it.

There’s always a pattern, if you can just stand back far enough to see it. Luckily, we don’t have to try that hard with these luxe spring looks, featuring everything from the swirling bright hues to fierce snakeskin prints to the softest floral-inspired pastels. Whether you’re craving fitted cuts or styles that flow around you with ease, you can strut your stuff confident that you’ll look good—and be impossible to miss.
