A punchy floral blouse for spring

A vibrant silk blouse announces it’s time for spring


Florals big and small lined spring runways. One of our favorite pieces is this silk blouse by local design darling Daniela Corte, who infuses the lush landscape of her native Argentina into her current Birds of Paradise collection. Inspired by its “sensual flowers that perfectly encapsulate the wonder of the tropics,” Corte envisions her sexy, wearable look worn by “powerful multitasking women tired of this endless winter.” Well then, we hope she’s stocked up. “Thomas” blouse, $465, and “Jerry” skirt, $595, at Daniela Corte, 211 Newbury St., Boston, 617-262-2100, www.danielacorte.com
