Dreamy, soft watercolor prints are all over the Spring 2010 Fashion Week runways.

Easy to wear, pretty, but more sophisticated than, say, a plain old floral, we expect they'll show up on lots of dresses and blouses at every price point come spring. Start picking out your color palette now.

We love them on dresses, but a flowy tunic or blouse would also look great with white or dark-colored jeans, or really great with white shorts, high-heeled chunky sandals and a big hat.

NB: These prints look best with bold accessories, especially attention-getting shoes, which will keep them from looking to much like something from your grandmother's closet.
