9 of the best printed green dresses to see you through summer in style

Posted by for Fashion

From supermodel’s high street favourites to Kitri’s sell-out style – these are the best printed green dresses to snap up now. 

Being able to get dressed (and look great) with just one item always gets a yes from us. The humble dress is a go-to during the summer months, but with so many to choose from, how do you know which ones to opt for? Of course white dresses always make an appearance each year – from linen to broderie anglaise – and this season is having a real love-in with the red dress. Then there’s the length. We’ve had the cool mini, the effortless midi and even maxi (it’s making a comeback, FYI).

But speaking specifically of colours, there’s a particular summery shade that’s gained the Stylist fashion team’s attention this season: green. Maybe it’s because we’ve all spent a lot more time at one with nature on our daily walks, or the fact it was all over the catwalks. Valentino’s s/s 2020 show saw neon highlighter hues, Gucci went for softer pastel shades and Versace nailed the look with printed green styles. The show saw the return of the iconic tropical print that Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards, and even after all that time, green prints are officially the dress style du jour once again. 

Even supermodel Kendall Jenner has been trying out green prints by opting for this under £100 high street beauty from House of Sunny. Naturally we predict this chic retro style will sell-out in record speed, so we’ve found (and some other favourites) for you below.

Another London label, Kitri has launched many green printed dresses for summer and the perfect polka dot version has already sold out online. Luckily, they’ve dropped this animal print style in both a mini and midi so we can all get in on the action. 

Any shade and print goes as long as it’s green. Shop some of our 9 printed green dresses right now…
