We suffer from long winters, hiding inside to keep warm. There is a certain point when we realize there is still a few more months of this weather and the rest of the continent is already feeling the spring sunshine. These are the moments we “pretend” it is just not cold! It’s finally time to put on something fun and fancy and enjoy life again, no matter how much snow we have to run through!
Most of the summer dresses we carry in our boutiques have bright floral prints or patterns on them. With a short prairie summer and so many weddings and bridal showers to attend a floral dress is the perfect fit. Many of these dresses are vintage inspired, the prints fill you with a touch of nostalgia and the silky, flowing fabric makes a statement for any occasion.
Floral prints don’t need a lot of accessories, a few stacked bracelets or wrist wraps, a softly coloured statement necklace and a thin belt just polish up your look for a summer wedding or party.
We love to see how girls switch up their flower print dresses for different occasions. When you fall in love with a dress and know you can use it for work, weddings and a hot date it makes it easier to commit to the dress. We love to look at blogs for inspiration and Velvet & Vino blogger Becky did a fantastic job showing three ways to wear a dress with flowers.
This is one of our favourite looks from Becky on how to pull off an evening look in a fun, bright floral print, check out her blog; Velvet & Vino to see the other looks she created.
This Grace dress has been one of our more popular floral prints this season. A dark base colour like the black makes it easier to pair with shoes and match your date.
