From ditsy print to pretty pastels and chic monochrome, floral dresses are everywhere right now and they are the perfect piece to take you from park to pub on summer days. Scroll on for our edit of the best…

A floral dress in summer? Hardly groundbreaking but an easy go-to that always works. The high street and high-end collections are covered in them this season whether you’re after something elegant to wear to a wedding or something casual for the weekend. And don’t worry about them being too overly feminine, a floral dress can look great toughened up with black sporty-style sandals or paired with an oversized denim jacket.

On the high street, look to H&M for dramatic, voluminous shapes in the prettiest of prints; or M&S whose collaboration with Ghost is all about florals. For something a little more expensive take advantage of the summer sales and invest in Rixo’s vibrant print clash of leopard and daisies – a cool way to do wedding guest chic. Or Meadow’s tiered Bella dress with its sweet rosebud print.

If barely-there slip dresses are more your thing, check out Zara’s cute ditsy print in fluid satin blush or Reformation’s Kourtney dress which has all the makings of an out-out dress – bodice detail, side slip, cute print. Make sure you add to basket in time for July 19th.

M&S X GHOST

Brit label Ghost have long been loved for their floral print dresses and thanks to their ongoing collab with M&S you can now shop them for a fraction of the price. This tie-sleeve mini tea dress is a current favourite and will add vintage-esque charm to your summer wardrobe.

Florals needn't be brash and bright, this season pretty pastel hues reign supreme. Zara's sexy slip of dress will look as good with barely-there sandals and gold hoops in the evening, as it will dressed down with white sneakers in the day.
