Meet the Breezy Floral Dresses You’ll Want to Wear All Spring Long

By ·

Florals? For spring? We know: groundbreaking. But these aren’t the dainty pastel buds of your grandma’s tea towels. They’re in-your-face and unapologetic, blooming freely in a mash-up of moody hues and growing wild over everything from power suits to playful skirts. They’ve got swagger, attitude and a bit of grit — just like Philly — and they’re exactly what you’ll want to wear after hibernating all winter.
