Take a spin in Marimekko’s white, lime, and black silk chiffon, and you just might go home with one. The dress ($379) from the legendary Finnish design house is feminine, simple, and flirtatious with its swingy, full silhouette. But unlike so many styles from the last couple of seasons, it doesn’t make the woman wearing it look as if she’s impersonating a child. How modern.
