How to wear a bold floral-print dress like Jenny Slate on TODAY

Funny girl and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jenny Slate brings the laughs, but her fashion sense is definitely no laughing matter.

The 33-year-old actress stopped by the Fourth Hour of TODAY on Friday to chat about her new film "Zootopia," but we'll admit we were focused on her stellar outfit.

As she stepped out in a bold floral-print dress by SUNO, Slate instantly had us dreaming of spring. The comedian went for a frock with a darker color palette, making what could have been a strictly spring and summer outfit feel winter appropriate.

The sophisticated-yet-playful dress made for a major style moment. With a fun, girly pattern, the dress is full of personality, but its A-line cut makes it still appropriate for a day in the office. Simple peep-toe pumps, fresh-faced makeup and minimal jewelry polished off her feminine look and allowed her dress to really shine.

However, this same dress could easily be worn to a party just by changing up the accessories. Swap in a metallic pump or sandal and a matching bag, throw on some hoops and maybe a slightly punchier lip color and you're ready for a cocktail party or even a more formal affair, like a wedding.

If the idea of a floral print seems slightly daring, try going with one that's all in the same color family, so the pattern makes less of statement. You can also achieve a similar look by going for a full skirt with a bold print and pairing it with a solid tee or blouse.

We loved Slate's outfit so much that we found 11 floral dresses, all for under $90, that we can't wait to wear this spring. With a variety of color palettes and styles, there's sure to be a dress for you. Talk about spring dressing made easy!
