How to style a floral dress for any occasion

Through the ebb and flow of seasonal trends, floral dresses remain a decided wardrobe essential. Reliable, timeless and chic, the floral dress appears everywhere from work to weddings. We explore how to style and accessorise blooms for any occasion.


Break up the block colours and neutral tones in your working wardrobe with a floral midi dress. Hint: a wrap dress design is our go-to style for work. A midi dress with a belted waist is an always-tending option that promises a sophisticated look. The best part about floral dresses for work? They are transeasonal. We love pairing a floral midi dress with mules in warmer months and sock boots in winter. A tonal tote and blazer are the perfect finishing touches to elevate this ensemble.

When choosing a floral dress for the weekend, our top tip is opting for a style you can dress up or down with ease. A skater-style mini dress is ideal for all weekend plans, from a quick coffee run to a birthday brunch. Look to blouson sleeves with cuffs and a ruffled mini skirt for a trending-now edge. Bringing blooms into winter is made effortless with a vintage floral print. For a summer dress, subtle florals in blush and neutral tones are timeless. Pair back with chunky white sneakers and a leather jacket for relaxed appeal, or make your look birthday brunch-ready with low strappy heels and drop earrings.

A floral maxi dress is the perfect dress for a wedding. Look to styles that incorporate timeless features like ruched detailing and a fitted bodice, as well as modern accents such as a front split and plunging neckline. Accessorise your statement floral dress with a hard case clutch and stiletto heels. Gather the hair in a low bun for understated glam.

Turn heads in a wrap-style floral mini dress at your next party. A pleated design and balloon sleeves are the trends to know when it comes to the perfect party dress. A wrap-style mini dress is versatile and re-wearable as a cocktail dress, evening dress or summer dress. Style your vibrant floral mini with sparkling accessories and a pouch bag.
