Margherita Week in Review

Our eighth POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Spring 2016 Margherita Dress. With this pocketed, flowy, fun, print sundress, we learned to dress like a button-downed boardroom style maven; an easy office worker, a trendy print mixer, a white-out craft fair attendee, and a vintage lace beauty.  We learned to play with contrasts, prints, color, the white-out trend, layers and more. The Margherita Dress adds an easy breezy style for any occasion all! 

For your viewing and styling pleasure, here are the seven looks!  Which is your favorite?
