The best way to usher in spring? A wardrobe full of new dresses. Every day this week, we're spotlighting a dress that we adore (and that we'll most likely scoop up for ourselves), along with styling ideas and tips, so that you can have your chicest season yet.

It's easy to picture the bohemian—she's a free spirit, which materializes in crochet pieces, lightweight dresses (that flutter in the wind as she frolics through fields), and a lot of fringe. But a modern version of the classic boho has emerged this season, and the look boasts all the laidback trimmings of the original, but with a stronger, contemporary-cool edge.

And yes, we found the one dress that embodies this aesthetic through and through. This Apiece Apart design ($575; is both bold (with its graphic spin on the classic stripe) and relaxed, thanks to its soft pleating, the long rope tassels, and the wonderfully offbeat color palette. We added on to this fashion sentiment with a stone pendant (embedded with diamonds for that dusting of modern-day glam), a woven straw clutch, and minimalist white slip-on sneaks. Shop out the look for yourself, below.
