The Statement Dress 10/10 Fashion Girls Will Try This Spring

Remember that scene in The Sound of Music where Maria makes play clothes for the children out of bedroom drapes? (What girl didn’t want to sing "Do-Rei-Mi" in Liesl von Trapp’s outfit?) Well fast-forward 50 years, and now fashion girls everywhere have been making those chintzy prints a whole lot chicer. Whether you call them wallpaper prints or curtain prints, patterned dresses are enjoying a renaissance this season and have no signs of slowing down for spring. From florals to bright and bold designs and retro-inspired motifs, don't be daunted by elaborate patterns; the clean lines and simple silhouettes of these pieces make them easy to wear. Pair your statement dress with a simple boot or white sneaker so you look a little less Salzburg and a little more SoHo. Scroll below for our favorite print dresses of the season.
