Summer Florals Long + Lean

Our favorite silhouette for the season is surprisingly open and airy, given the length. Maxi dresses in Summer florals should be cut all-the-way-up-to-here or all-the-way-down-to-there. The bigger the print, the better! We love Alice + Olivia’s Honey Printed Embellished Aline Gown for the maximal tropical print. Be sure to catch it on final sale at 40% off. Super cute with strappy heels and a vintage clutch. If you want to go darker, find a print that will carry you into Fall. Stick to 70’s oranges and greens to stay on trend.

Say it With Embroidery

Since we’ve been on an embroidery kick as of late last year, we’re still sticking to handmade details. Embroidered Summer florals in big, bold patterns are the latest fad. The world can’t seem to get enough of pink and tropical is the name of the game!

Vacation Time!

Pant sets and accessories are also big on our radar. Wide-leg pants in bright, Summer florals are this year’s vacation staples. If you’re an over-achiever, don’t overlook the luggage department. Etsy has some of the best vintage floral prints, so keep it legit!

Glam it Up

If you’re feeling more low key, take a gander at our neck scarves and head scarves articles. Adding a scarf in Summer florals is the easiest way to rock the look. This is perfect for a summer drive with the top down. Add one of our favorite updates to vintage sunglasses styles and you’re good to go!

Girl Next Door

Feeling a little more country, a little less rock n’ roll? Grab a sun dress in soft Summer florals for an easy country girl vibe. This is a nice look for farmers market trips and pair well with our favorite straw purses. Add the straw hat style of your choice for a head-to-toe farm girl look. We like the Shirley Dress from Paige Denim for it’s cute button front details. It has a tie waist and a super flattering fit. If you choose a button down dress, you can show a little more leg or cleavage. It can get hot outside, so might as well add some breeze!

Room for Rompers

Don’t worry, we weren’t going to overlook rompers and playsuits. Summer florals in smaller amounts of fabric pack still pack a big punch! We love 60s paisley florals and big tropical prints too. Rompers are the easiest swimsuit cover-ups and are flattering as well. You can get away with brighter colors and bolder prints if you keep the accessories minimal. Check out our favorite sandals styles for the season to complete the look.
