I wore this dress the second day of SBS Con. I don't like to play favorites in my closet, but I have to say that this dress is on the top of my list. Between the fun print, the pleats, and the cut, I have found it to be very easy to dress up, dress down, or wear anywhere in between.
Fruit prints continue to be a major trend, and I don't see them going anywhere soon. Generally speaking, the prints that are out now have the right amount of sophisticated edge that keeps you out of the 'kiddie' section of dressing, but it's definitely something to keep an eye out for. Keep an eye on the quality of the print, the overall look of the piece and the details on it - those are sure fire ways to stay a bit more within your age range.
