Is it a ship or a cloud? Big prints are all the rage, and we find this one downright daydreamy. Talbots mariner-print cotton skirt, $80; talbots.com

Field of Flowers

Tiny prints like this wildflower floral can be overwhelming if overdone. Try one as a skirt, not a dress, and mix with a plain tank or tee. J.Crew floral cotton skirt, $98; jcrew.com for similar styles
