Cue the Excitement: 26 Epic Floral Dresses To Wear All Season Long

After weeks upon weeks spent working, walking, and basically living in stretchy pants, I’m ready to feel my legs again. Aren’t you? With the arrival of warm weather, there’s ample opportunity (cue the skirts and shorts), but really, few things make us giddier than a floral dress. Slipping one on feels like the ultimate precursor to spring—a signal that iced drinks, outdoor picnics, and more warm-weather pleasures are on the horizon.  Designers this season have turned the traditional floral dress on its head, transforming its sweet, saccharine image into something that feels modern, seductive, and powerful all at once. Although calico and vintage-inspired florals are still going strong, they’ve been making way for bigger, bolder abstract prints in punchy, vivid hues. As they’re practically a spring-summer staple, you probably already own a few floral dresses you rotate through each season, but what’s one (or two) more to the mix? My personal motto: You can never have enough, especially if you like to keep a fail-safe outfit in your clothing arsenal. To get you in the summer mood, I’m highlighting all of the epic floral dresses I think everyone should buy now. Also included are the various ways our favorite tastemakers are styling them.
