It was a hot afternoon, and I can still remember the smell of honeysuckle all along that street.
Flowery prints are a perennial favorite of ours during the warmer months. Whether it’s a floret-filled mini, maxi or slinky gown, floral dresses always look fun and festive at summer garden parties, sunset soirees and al fresco dinner parties. We also have a slightly strategic reason for loving them so much during the hottest days of the year: they make getting party ready a breeze. Because blossoming prints make such a strong fashion statement, hair, make-up and accessories should all be kept natural and simple. With that in mind, we trekked into the verdant garden of fashion and picked the 10 best floral party dresses for summer. In other words, this bud’s for you, doll.
