Trend Alert: Floral Prints

May 23rd, 2008

Celebrate the warm weather with floral prints!  This season’s floral prints run the gamut–from graphic to tropical to abstract to oversized–and we just can’t get enough.  Presenting five of our favorite floral print dresses:

Our $ Picks:
Trixxi ‘Emma’ Floral Print Dress
Trixxi ‘Emma’ Floral Print Dress | $58 at Nordstrom
The bold pink floral border really makes this dress Pop!

Tropical Linen Shift
Tropical Linen Shift | $59.50 at Gap
These tropical flowers aren’t your ordinary floral print.

Our $$ Pick:
Silk Floral Print Halter Dress
Silk Floral Print Halter Dress | $150 at Banana Republic
Don’t you love how the giant floral print makes such a powerful style statement?

Our $$$ Picks:
Tory Burch ‘Hollie’ Dress
Tory Burch ‘Hollie’ Dress | $395 at Nordstrom
We love how the florals on this dress appear in a non-traditional blue color.  The perfect complement for a classic shift dress. 

Sea Glass Gown
Sea Glass Gown | $575 at J Crew
Drape yourself in color with this allover abstract graphic print.

    ah, the Sea Glass Gown is gorgeous! Too bad it is in the $$$ price range, otherwise I’d get it!

    Isn’t it lovely? I’m a huge fan of the bright colors and flowing shape. Now if it were only a few hundred dollars cheaper…

    A nice variety of styles and designs. The Tropical Linen Shift is very chic; the Tory Burch ‘Hollie’ Dress a little retro; and the Silk Floral Print Halter Dress looks like it would be very cool on a sweltering day.

    Love that Banana Republic dress.

    Do y’all ever blog about finding the types of styles you come up with for Plus size women?

    Mimi - I always love your take on the clothes we feature :)

    Trisha-
    Yes, it is helpful indeed. Thank you! It’d just be nice if in addition to $, $$, $$$ we could also get a women’s plus option.

    Hi Nikki,

    Totally agreed. Are there any online stores that you think do a good job for plus sizes? I’ve found the Nordstrom does a fairly decent job, but their selection (and photos, which often picture regular models) is a bit lacking.

    Oh, and check back on Friday–I’m working on a plus size fashion shopping guide post :)

    Cheers,
    Trisha

    Yep- A few.

    Macy’s is great in addition to Nordstrom. Lane Bryant, IGIGI, Old Navy, Torrid.com, and evans.co.uk are some good places to start. Thank you for doing this!! It’s truly appreciated.
