10 Floral Dresses For The Woman Who Can’t Do Floral Dresses
As long as they've got an edge, that something extra that gives you room to turn it into something else. (P.S: Half of these are on S-A-L-E.)| June 8, 2017
Florals for spring and summer? We’ve already been there. But you know what, we get it – not everyone is into being covered in a giant piece of floral fabric. I’m typically the girly one in Team KULALA – fine, girly with a pinch of salt – but even I have qualms about floral dresses at least half of the time. There are just some that make you feel as though you’re about to burst into a million flowers and that’s not as pretty as it sounds. It’s more bull in a china shop than bed of roses.
So for us, floral dresses need to have a kind of edge before we can be won over. Say, one with its own detachable capelet, or one that you can easily layer over pants despite its bevy of ruffles and pleats. Or perhaps even one that is all modest at the front but has a peephole to a lot of skin at the back, like this Vetements dress that Yoyo has on above. It looks like a dainty Austenesque tapestry at first, but see how easily Yoyo layered it over jeans and boots? Edgy here doesn’t mean the antithesis of girly, just something extra that gives you room to play around. If you’re sold on the floral dress, shop the pieces that we have our eye on in the edit below. Half of them are on sale, FYI.
