Trend: Feminine Charm

Doris Day, eat your heart out.

A naive ideal of femininity is stepping forward for spring as designers pay homage to cinema sweethearts with demure looks in a delicate palette of buttercream, petal pink and white. The overall look is lighthearted, flower-filled and fun. Kartell's latest light, aptly named Bloom, delivers a breathtaking bouquet at the flick of a switch, and Anthropologie's charming floral knobs would put the perfect finishing touch on a painted vintage dresser. With refreshing and unabashedly pretty items, we say: Bring on spring!
