How to Style a Floral Dress

There is nothing more classic than wearing a floral dress for the summer. From dainty and pastel frocks to bright and bold sundresses, a floral dress is appropriate for any summer occasion. A versatile floral dress is the perfect staple in any college girl’s wardrobe. But once you found the perfect dress, how do you style it? Here are a few outfit ideas to dress your favorite floral frock up or down this summer.

With Pastels and Lace:

The floral dress is always a feminine favorite. Pastel colors, laces, bows and other feminine details are a cute way to play up your girly side for the summer. Try pairing it with a lace or pastel-colored blazer, a cute pair of sandals and a pastel-colored fedora for an afternoon out. I added a sweet pair of rose earrings, a stack of bangles and chic quilted purse to polish off this look.

With Denim:

Layering clothing during the summer can be a challenge thanks to the heat, but it can be done. Pair a denim vest over your floral dress for an effortlessly chic look. The denim vest is a great warm-weather alternative to denim jackets or cardigans, so it’d be perfect for those balmy summer nights. Add a pair of chunky sandals, simple accessories, like a pair of studs or watch, and a cross-body bag.

With a Minimalist Charm:

Sometimes, the summer calls for a relaxed and casual outfit. There are those really hot days that you just don’t feel like getting dressed. Keep it simple. Let your floral dress be the center of the outfit with minimal accessories and jewelry. Add a neutral pair of sandals, a favorite pair of sunglasses or stud earrings and a small bag to carry your essentials.

Personally, my summer wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a floral dress. From summer weddings to the beach to hanging out with friends, a good dress is the perfect versatile piece.
