There are many things we’re excited about during the summer, but among them (and a big factor, we admit) is wearing summer dresses with very feminine floral prints on them.
Florals aren’t anything new; designers have resorted to them every now and then to make feminine numbers. But then again, the colors that they bring to the outfit are always welcome and especially fitting when the sun is shining brightly. And the fresh vibe they release can be actually felt with the choice of fabric.
Without further ado, here are 24 of the most glamorous designer floral dresses and gowns we can’t help but gush about:
Dolce & Gabbana Floral-print crepe midi dress
The duo that make up Dolce & Gabbana always make it a point to showcase the beauty of their home country and to be a representative of the much coveted Italian glamour. It succeeds in doing so with this dress that puts on display a romantic, floral motif on a smooth crepe and flattering dress.
Marc Jacobs Open-back embellished crepe midi dress
If you’re not afraid of bright, vivid colors, then you might be able to pull off something as attention-grabbing as this. The sequined dress of course adds more shimmer than normal but it is easier to slip on given its loose construction. The exposed back has a slightly sensual vibe, and you can give the dress more shape by knotting the rope at the waist.
Celine Vintage floral print dress
This floral dress may have hit the stores years ago but we still aren’t let down, especially knowing that this is a vintage Celine. Made in France, this dress mostly made in silk has a timeless appeal, partly owing to its cut and design. The red flowers still look blooming, and would look great with black stiletto heels.
Erdem Grazia floral-print stretch-ponte dress
We adore the choice of colors in this floral dress—green, white, and yellow—that are soothing to the eyes but we love the silhouette even more. The stretch-ponte emphasizes all the right things and the hem makes each movement hypnotizing. For a beautiful dress, it is also comfortable to be in all day.
Saloni Katie floral-print silk dress
The last thing you need on a warm, summer day is a dress that would feel icky if you sweat on it. Might we recommend this unlined silk dress? The silk will let you breathe through the heat and the short cut will make moving around much more comfortable. A belt can be tied around it if you want yourself to have a more flattering shape.
Marni Melodia Flower print dress
We’re loving the vibe we’re getting from this dress that looks as if it’s partly inspired by traditional dresses from the other side of the world. The color of the flowers just bursts against the black background. The long sleeves and the hem of the dress both share pleats that give an airy impression, suitable for a warmer weather. Match with similarly dark colored shoes.
Lela Rose Pleated fil coupé silk-blend organza midi dress
A fan of dressing in mostly blacks? Why not spice it up a bit by including this mini dress, an easy choice to add some color, into your wardrobe? The dress made out of silk-blend organza is decorated with lovely roses in romantic colors of red and soft pink.
Miu Miu Floral-printed dress
Most of the numbers so far have been in black but this time we get a breath of fresh air with this floral dress from Miu Miu. The frock may subtract a few years from you with its youthful Peter Pan collar and puffed sleeves, but you can still put emphasis to your womanly curves, thanks to the smocked waist that is among the things that keeps this dress from being plain.
Balenciaga Floral-print silk-jacquard maxi dress
Balenciaga nails the look you’d want to have in the summer with this maxi dress that comes with bright, white flower prints. You can see brand signatures all over the silk-jacquard dress: subtly woven logos across the fabric, a play at asymmetry at the back, and an overall number that’s flattering to the wearer without even considering the fitted bust and waist.
Marchesa Notte floral dress
This sensual tiny number from Marchesa Notte is sure to make plenty of heads turn towards your direction. For one, it’s in bright purple that just commands attention, and two, the dress is form-fitting so you could appreciate your figure more. The nylon dress best works with high-heeled shoes.
Dodo Bar Or Crystal-embellished floral-print chiffon midi dress
Have a cup of tea with friends on this wedding and garden party-appropriate dress from Dodo Bar Or. The nipped in waist is subtle in effect and the hem that flows is reminiscent of the styles in the 1920s and the 1960s. No need to worry about accessories, the crystals on the dress have that taken care of.
Off-White Printed silk-jacquard dress
Off-White may be best known for its streetwear pieces, but that doesn’t mean it can’t produce a beautiful floral number. It still is able to inject its brand though by making the florals into a collaged print. The dress made from silk jacquard has shoulder straps you can adjust to your liking.
Act N°1 draped floral dress
We absolutely adore the kimono effect on this dress by the Italian dressmakers at Act N°1. The color combination of purple, white and red is also interesting, as well as the delicate floral patterns on the fabric that drapes wonderfully on the body. Contrast the look with hoop earrings and a solid pair of kitten heels.
Paul & Joe Floral-print cotton-gauze maxi dress
It may be the choice of colors, the way the trims are ruffled or the cut of the dress but this Paul & Joe number seems to transport us back to old-timey days. The maxi dress has red flowers against the off-white fabric that would not look out of place in a place far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Mary Katrantzou Petunia floral-printed dress
It is hard to imagine a dress as puffy as this to be easy to wear, but it actually is. Behind the elaborate construction is a pull over style that minimizes the hassle of wearing it. However, the effortlessness is contrasted by the big, bold print that takes plenty of confidence and sass to pull off. The puff looks stunning with an equally bold pair of footwear.
Proenza Schouler Cutout floral-print crepe midi dress
We’ve fallen in love with this midi dress from Proenza Schouler and the prints of poppies all over that lead us to yearn for better, chiller days. We’re also astonished at the option the brand gives you to style and experiment with this dress through the many horizontally lined hooks on the waist.
Prabal Gurung floral dress
Prabal Gurung does not disappoint with the florals on this white frock, they’re colorful and swirly and easy to style. You can indulge yourself with the silk fabric too and allow yourself to stand out, so we think it’s a win-win.
Johanna Ortiz Martinique ruffled printed cotton-blend midi dress
Few things are as arresting as the bold Colombian orchids on the midi dress by Johanna Ortiz, it’s even like an artwork which isn’t the farthest thing from reality considering that this is somewhat inspired by Impressionist Paul Gauguin. Also a plus: no need to wear a bra because the dress provides sufficient support.
Marchesa Notte Ruffled embroidered tulle and jersey dress
Made out of tulle and jersey, this Marchesa Notte dress is sensual and flattering, which is completely appropriate on a date night if you need to have the first steps taken care of to win a prospect over. The frock with creeping flowers all over inspired by designer Tony Duquette can be mixed in with a black pair of heels.
Dolce & Gabbana Sleeveless Floral Striped Brocade Dress
Flaunt your love of the Italian brand with this pattern that is indisputably a Dolce & Gabbana signature. Made in Italy, the brocade dress with an A-line silhouette will keep you looking pretty and feminine all day. Complete the look with a pair of heels also from the duo.
Diane von Furstenberg Printed silk-twill mini dress
Want to take out the ankle boots you haven’t used for so long and don it with a dress? We’ve found your shoes a match with this dress from Diane von Furstenberg. The pattern on this dress with a waist you can cinch has developed from a sketch; we’re thrilled that it has turned out this way.
Adam Lippes Floral-print wool midi dress
This dress is both ours and Adam Lippes’ favorite, and we have no doubt it will be yours too! It’s extra special considering that the designer hand-painted the print himself. Plus, pockets!
Michael Kors Collection Strapless Floral-Print Jacquard Midi Dress
Want to take it all the way and be ultra feminine in your floral dress? Do it the right with Michael Kors. This strapless sweetheart dress has bold flowers that’s even accentuated by the full skirt. Keep all the focus on the dress by opting for accessories that aren’t as vibrant as the frock itself.
Haney + Jeff Leatham Goldie asymmetric floral-print silk crepe de chine maxi dress
The glory days of supermodels are called to mind with this Haney maxi dress. It’s form fitting and drapes on the body beautifully, so it might not be bad to revisit an old design.
While you can opt for floral dresses all year round, they’re probably most acceptable during the summer. It might be a common print, but the variety keeps it from being a tired design. Doesn’t hurt though that you can look effortlessly stylish with them, plus they can be as versatile as other basic pieces. With that in mind, it’s not a bad idea to stock up on them so you always have something interesting to wear.
