    Here's our problem with going-out gear: Most of it is firmly stuck in 2008. Stores are still stocked with toothachingly twee bubble-hem frocks or, worse, rib-cage-crushing bandage dresses that make us feel like a Kardashian. So, needless to say, when we first spotted Three Floor, the British brand specializing in cool-girl party dresses, it was love at first sight.

    The brand's spring '14 collection brings its signature attention to detail to clothes that feel both confident and playful. Citing "collage" as a key inspiration, Three Floor offers spring designs that employ origami folds, pleats, and contrasting colors, which give the pieces depth and texture. Meanwhile, curve-conscious — but never skintight — silhouettes make the items feel young and completely modern.
