I love a good floral print—though there are a lot of bad ones out there. This season was all about the 70s, with playful prints, bell bottoms, bright colors, and bandannas reminding us of brighter days. The flirtatious floral frock is the staple du jour this summer. It’s a feminine addition to your wardrobe that’s flattering on many body types and figures.
Better yet, there’s a bevy of brands out of Los Angeles—worn by the cool girls on Instagram—designing flirty and fun floral dresses that hit the mark right between too retro and just right.
I picked up this dress—on sale at shopbop—and easily dressed it up with heels and a handbag. The next day, I bicycled to brunch on my Brooklyn Bicycles cruiser in my trusty red sneakers.
To complete the look, opt for a geometric bag. No summer floral dress would be complete without a basket-inspired handbag, another major trend this summer.
