Tomorrow marks the first day of spring. And, hopefully, a definitive end to winter temperatures. Meaning the new season's zippy colors and artful prints will fill our wardrobes once again — and very, very soon. Carven's resort '14 collection, inspired by '60s photography of Malick Sidibé, is a good place to start. It's chock-full of modish, retro silhouettes, fantastical colors, and equally whimsical prints. This neon-green, kiwi-patterned dress is a clear favorite. Paired with a lightweight, linen topper and black accessories, it's a punchy way to welcome the warmth. For now, keep your toes clad in neutral booties, but immediately swap for sandals come 70 degrees and above!
