If you know me well, you know I have quite a soft spot for floral dresses. My closet is filled to the brim with beautiful blooms, and on any given day, you can catch me wearing some sort of romantic or bold, flowery print.
There's something so uplifting and joyous about a floral frock, and while you can certainly wear them year-round, there's no better time to embrace their lighthearted whimsy than the warm summer months.
Since it's part of my job to discover the coolest brands and fashion items out there, today I wanted to share some of the best brands to beeline toward if you're looking for a pretty floral summer dress. These are some of my favorites that I turn to time and again to get my floral fix.
A favorite among the fashion set, Réalisation has some of the coolest floral prints set on sleek slip dresses and French girl–inspired silhouettes.
