The Chocolate Fashion Blog selected the best dresses from spring 2010 runway collections. It’s not about labels here, it’s about looks. Dresses came in all colors like lilac, cobalt, salmon, and ice silver; red, gold, and orange also rang in vividly for the season. Prints were abundant as were knee-baring hems, draping and embellished details. From cool chiffon to soft silk crepe and sleek-fitting sheaths, we chose the most feminine, alluring, fresh looks for spring.
