The Floral Dress

A simple floral dress is one of my go-to looks for the summertime. It’s effortless, season appropriate, and just plain pretty.

Finding a pattern that doesn’t cross the line into grandma territory can be tricky, but here are a few suggestions that can help:

Choose a flattering silhouette. I have been reaching for off the shoulder dresses recently. As long as the dress itself looks good on you, the pattern will take a back seat.

Stick to a pattern that only focuses on two complementary color categories. In the dress I’m wearing, black and gold stand out. This way, it isn’t too overwhelming.

Unless your flowers are smaller (like in the dress I’m wearing), make sure the print is a bit scattered and spread out. It’s easier on the eyes.

  1. You have absolutely gorgeous pictures! I’ve used some on my blog—both as Header Images and to illustrate several poems II wrote. If this use is not your wish—I can remove same from my blog…but let me keep posts of your blog on mine! Come see what I’ve done, and if it is offensive, I’ll remove all that you request. –Jonathan Caswell, at The Mighty Mumford blog.
