    Time and time again, we've learned that balance — in all aspects of life — is key, and there is one British brand that is setting a perfect example...and setting the bar quite high. Preen Line has made us fans season after season with its eye-catching prints and inventive structure, and its latest collection for spring keeps us captivated.

    The brainchild of real-life couple Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, the collection is a beautiful marriage of feminine pastels, with some more masculine shapes. Florals hit a high note — but in a modern, structured way — that doesn't make a comparison to overly precious garden parties. Plus, details range from slight peplum waists to racing stripes and oversized short sleeves to super-skinny pant legs.

    The soft (but not-too-soft) looks all pull together in the spring lookbook, neatly housed within an industrial setting that just further proves that Preen has serious gold-medal balancing skills. Skip ahead to the slides for all the new looks to fall for. (Ironic, no?)
