The Microtrend You Should Try This Spring? Butterflies

Here's a trend that's taking flight: butterflies! They've emerged from the cocoon of winter, showing up on the runway, like Giorgio Armani's stunning butterfly neckpiece, and on celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, who attached a glittering brooch to her dress. These ethereal creatures lend a sweet, feminine element to everything from a striped sweater to a printed dress. To help you get the look, we've rounded up the best butterfly pieces to shop now.
