Dress manufacturer Rara Avis achieved the seemingly impossible with this A-line gown that is high fashion but wearable, fairy-esque but not childlike, and romantic without being overly-frilly or feminine.

This dress pays a subtle, classy homage to Spring with muted florals and a flowing, gauzy skirt, both of which look like they came directly from a Renaissance painting. The barely-there sleeves delicately tied at the shoulders with floral details (swoon) also offer a bit more coverage for chillier spring days.
