Fashion trends are great and all. Except when they're so specific that they only look good if you have supermodel proportions. So when we stumble upon one that works for a wide range of sizes and builds, we rejoice. This season, that trend is printed, '60s-inspired shift dresses. Case in point:

Seen on recent runways at Michael Kors, Gucci and Miu Miu, vintage florals are back in a big way. While it's still chilly, pair yours with thick tights and an equally bold coat. When the weather warms up, ditch the stockings and rock bare legs. 

A few things to keep in mind, fit-wise: Look for one that hits ever so slightly above your knee. When you're working with a silhouette that floats away from the body, you can get away with a shorter hemline.

Pair yours with flats (or, sans tights, with a crisp pair of white sneakers) to avoid looking too vampy.

If you do go for a heeled shoe, make like Coterie member Katie Sturino and choose a dress that's closer to knee-length.

Or, if you're on the shorter side, take a page out of Tiffany Jais's playbook and pair your floral mini with over-the-knee boots, which will further elongate your legs. 

Groovy, baby.
