It’s still very cold outside, but February is the month to start buying pieces for spring. This navy and white dot-printed dress is a stellar bet to start off your spring 2012 wardrobe. First of all, with that full skirt, fun print and adjustable spaghetti straps it’s amazing on its own. But maxi dresses are great for maximizing your closet – especially in these last months of winter. Layer-on leggings, long johns, knee-socks and sweaters to your heart’s content. Some dresses are just season-less in that way. Lucky you.
