Remember that scene in The Sound of Music where Maria makes play clothes for the children out of bedroom drapes? (What girl didn’t want to sing "Do-Rei-Mi" in Liesl von Trapp’s outfit?) Well fast-forward 50 years, and now fashion girls everywhere have been making those chintzy prints a whole lot chicer. Whether you call them wallpaper prints or curtain prints, patterned dresses are enjoying a renaissance this season and have no signs of slowing down for spring. From florals to bright and bold designs and retro-inspired motifs, don't be daunted by elaborate patterns; the clean lines and simple silhouettes of these pieces make them easy to wear. Pair your statement dress with a simple boot or white sneaker so you look a little less Salzburg and a little more SoHo. Scroll below for our favorite print dresses of the season.
