Floral Print Dresses

In your search for that perfect summer dress, don’t forget to include the classic floral print dress.  Dresses can currently be found in a variety of patterns, but good floral patterns can be a bit more elusive.  You want to find a pattern that isn’t over the top and sometimes floral patterns can be just that.

Consider the Cherry Short Sleeve Dress by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This dress features a sheer silk cotton blend fabric that feels light and airy on.  We love pairing it over a pair of leggings and worn as a tunic for added versatility.  The dress features a lightly plunging neckline and a brown tie around the waist for added contrast.  The floral pattern features blues and reds along with a tile pattern in back for added detail.

Floral patterns are great because they are always distinctive and unique.   In addition they always feature bright colors that blend well together.  The multiple colors also give you a number of options for colors to accessorize floral print dresses.  From shoes to leggings and jewelry you really do have a variety of ways to add accent to any floral print dress.

Another great example of a floral print dress featuring more of a retro vibe is the Mod Retro Tunic and the Retro Boatneck dress by designer Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati.  These dresses feature the same retro floral pattern with blocks of flowers juxtaposed on a black and white Spanish tile pattern.  The colors are in purples and blues and pinks giving a bright floral look on the style of each dress.  These dresses are great examples of different styles of dresses available for floral print dresses as well.  The boatneck dress with a tie around the waist is a great option for a more fitted look.  The retro tunic / dress features a 70s style sleeveless A line dress with a solid black stripe down the center for added contrast.  Each dress has a distinctive vibe and the floral pattern adds depth and character to the already stylish dress.

As you can see, you have a number of different options to find designer dresses with floral prints.  You can vary not only the floral pattern and colors but also the style of dress to create that perfect individual look you are going for.  We also love the ability to pair floral print dresses with so many options for accessories.  They are a great way to layer in solid color scarves, leggings, boots, shoes, jewelry and belts depending on the style of dress.   You also want to be sure to avoid floral patterns that overdo it.   While I can’t describe exactly what that means because it is so pattern specific, it generally is one of those you know it when you see it type of rules of thumb.  For all of these reasons, floral print dresses are a great way to express your own individual style and a great way to give your closet a pop of color and style.
