12 Printed Spring Dresses We Want Right Now

Maybe it's the little tease of warmth in the air or all the delicious plaid and floral spring dresses leading Louis Vuitton's recent fall/winter show, but we can't seem to get enough of bold prints lately. With just one little week separating us from spring's official return, we've put our shopping list front and center, with one or four printed dresses right at the top. Paired now with an opaque colored tight (eggplant or navy please!), and later with your newly inaugurated sandals, any of these frocks—starting at just $58—will give your spring/summer wardrobe lots of extra mileage. Tip: In addition to the 12 here, we suggest embarking on a thrift-store hunt, too, as sites like eBay and other second-hand boutiques are putting out all their best vintage Ikat prints, caftans, and beach-ready peasant dresses right now. In fact, here's an amazing one from our friends at Nasty Gal.
