Well, what is there to say about floral dresses? Since examples of them sometimes seem infinite, lots of things. And we shall be saying some of them here – as we always do.
Because floral dresses are often nowhere to be seen in winter, their appearance ought to signal the arrival of spring. And it does – sometimes. Indeed, spring is perhaps the most slippery season of all. No surer are you of its presence than when the heavens are just about to open, dampening your spirits and the laundry you put outside to dry in the process. But maybe wearing a floral dress is exactly what will cajole warmer weather into existence. If they make you feel summery, then why can’t they make mother nature feel summery? It defies logic! In this case, wearing floral dresses becomes an act of defiance. You wear them in spite of the weather, not because of it. Sooner or later, however, you will be on the right side of meteorology. As the sun shines brightly, nothing will make more sartorial sense than a floral dress. But finding the perfect one is a different matter entirely.
Just as there are many different flowers in the world, there are many different floral dresses: mini dresses, maxi dresses, skater dresses – think of any type of dress, and it will have a floral iteration. Eckhaus Latta even designed a velvet floral dress which – despite our earlier assertion – would actually look wonderful in the colder months. If autumnal colours don’t appeal to you in a floral context, Bernadette’s floral Miranda maxi dress is just as glamorous but decidedly sunnier in appearance. But maybe you don’t want glamour necessarily. Maybe you want fun. To that end, we shall leave you with the likes of Monki and Maje.
