Daisy print: 9 of the best dresses, skirts and shirts to buy now

Posted by for Fashion

Mood-boasting florals are a summer essential – these are the best daisy print pieces around. 

If there’s one thing this period of lockdown has made us all appreciate, it’s the little things. Be it a rare take away coffee on your daily walk, a squirrel you spot on a run in the park or a text from an old friend. All of these little things we may not have previously thought about as we go about our busy daily lives, are now important. As we take notice of our surroundings more, it appears everyone has a sudden love for daisies. The simple flower spotted on most lawns has now become an Instagram hit.

Maybe it’s because our gardens have morphed into an al fresco office space on days when it’s warm enough to deviate from the kitchen table? Or maybe it’s because florals for spring/summer are never unexpected? But, this year, the daisy feels fresh and uplifting – something we all need right now. 

The daisy brings back memories of being a child and making chain flower crowns (anyone else?) or sifting through the flowers to find a buttercup to check who actually liked butter (again, anyone else). Suddenly everyone is interested in the modest flower once again. 

Influencers have been posting pictures of daisies as a simple post to make people smile. They’ve also been wearing them with the likes of the Réalisation Par slip skirt and dress being a firm favourite (see Julie Borawska, below).

As an appreciation to the simple flower filling our feeds, we’ve found nine of the best daisy print dresses, tops and skirts to get your floral fix. You won’t be a wallflower in these pretty picks.
