How To Style A Floral Dress In The Spring

I have had this bright and colorful floral dress for years and even styled the dress for fall/winter back in 2010. So I thought it would be fun and appropriate to pull the dress out of the back of my closet and style it for today- the first day of spring! 

The best way to update the look of an older dress is to add on modern trendy accessories and layers.  I like the idea of creating a balance with a feminine floral dress by adding an edgy cropped leather jacket and studded belt. Together they make the outfit more chic and less girly. Here are a few ways I updated this floral dress. 

I added the following items:

1. Cropped leather jacket

2. Ankle strap heels

3. Bright colored crossbody bag 

4. Gold studded black belt
