Floral dresses are among the most common types of dress because floral designs look good on just about any type of dress. There are a few types of dresses where floral designs are more common than in other dresses, but generally they can be found in all types of dress. Some of the more popular types include:
Summer Floral Dresses
Floral is a very popular design for summer dresses. Part of the reason is because summer dresses are known for their bright colors, which is something that can be easily provided in most summer designs. Also, flowers seem to be at their most vibrant during this time of the year, which makes their appearance on summer dresses a natural fit.
Summer dresses tend to be lighter in material, and also can be much more revealing than other types of dresses because they are generally worn during the summer months. However, floral dresses that are made from a heavier fabric can also been worn during the winter and autumn months, and generally go well with accessories that are often associated with winter and autumn-wear.
During the colder months, look for floral dresses that feature darker colors. Bright colors tend to look out of place during the winter months, but darker floral designs can go great with the scarves, coats and hats from your closet. It is possible to wear brightly colored floral designs during autumn and winter when they are placed on darker colored backgrounds. During the spring months, the autumn and summer styles tend to collide as we watch the weather slowly change.
Sleeveless Evening Dresses
Another popular type of floral dress is the sleeveless evening dress. These going out dresses are generally used in more formal situations and feature darker colors. Sleeveless dresses are great for dinner dates and nights on the town, along with a beautiful cardigan or small coat. Some will be low cut, and others will have shoulder-width neck cuts, but all will be elegant and appropriate for any formal event.
For those of us who cannot get enough floral into their wardrobe, with careful planning you will be able to find floral dresses that work well during all seasons, allowing you to wear your favorite floral designs throughout the year. Keep in mind that many high-cut floral dresses can be worn with jeans under them as a dress-shirt style of outfit. This style has become increasingly popular in recent years and for good reason; it allows you to wear your shorter dresses during the colder months without looking out of place.
It has become increasingly common for floral designs to be used with more formal types of dresses, including evening gowns, bridesmaids’ gowns and even bridal gowns. Of course, these designs are often a bit different from the floral designs that you would see on more casual types of dresses. Keep in mind that at times floral designs can be overbearing when they are too large and take the attention off of the dress itself, so you might want to opt for designs that do not cover the entirety of the dress.
