We’re in this weird transition phase between winter and spring, when you’re not sure if you should wear black, or pink, or something in between.

I saw this little brocade floral A-line number from TopShop and I just had to have it. I’ve been loving burgundy and maroon shades this winter, and I loved the dark florals, which make for a perfect transition piece from winter to spring. Plus, the flattering, high-waist A-line cut makes it easy to rock, and the $60 price tag makes for no excuse.

This little baby can work with an oversized sweater and booties, but I chose to think spring and pair it with a turtleneck crop top for a bit of a 70s feel. Spring is all about neutrals, florals, and 70s vibes and I could not be more excited.

On the runways and boutiques, we are seeing all sorts of skirts and dresses in interesting floral prints with unique cuts—a retro closed V-neck, a ruffled or flared sleeve. There’s a lot of subdued drama in the flowy bell sleeves and interesting touches.

I wanted to curate a selection of my favorite floral pieces for spring that have retro feels and affordable price tags, so that collection is below.

With regards to this outfit, while I normally loathe turtle necks, I find a mock turtleneck is more comfortable, flattering, and gives off a retro vibe. I picked up these long, soft, and light-weight tassel earrings at Nordstrom on the way to the airport the other day and I could not love them more. And I’m digging that my subtle ombré from Logan 14 Aveda is showing just in time for spring.

I’ve added a few of the dresses to my shopping bag below, and they’ll pair easily with these suede block heels from Steve Madden, which are both affordable and beyond comfortable.
