They’re soft to touch, oh-so-stylish and every fashion lover worth their salt is currently wearing one. The question is, have you bagged your silky floral dress yet?

One thing that all dress lovers will be aware of is that not all dresses, be it mini, midi or maxi, were created equally.

There are, after all, different categories of dress. There are floaty linen dresses – an elevated take on the classic house dress, if you will; there are button-down dresses, which are perfect for a sojourn in the sun; and there are polo shirt dresses which are the epitome of tennis-at-10-cocktails-at-12 styling. In short, the pantheon of dresses needs some form of navigating given its wealth of options.

But for those of the dress-loving family, there’s a new fanciful frock that’s coming to charm us. And it’ll transport you effortlessly from noon-to-night with minimal effort from you. Indeed, silky floral dresses – a sort of riff on the classic 90s slip – are big news for summer; some are figure-hugging, some are not, but all are perfectly fashion-forward, particularly when the sunny season calls for an occasion dress.

Pair with a sweet micro mule if there is indeed an occasion to debut your silky floral dress at, or wear with chunky sandals to bring into the realm of everyday dressing. Either way, there’s a silky soft floral dress for everybody.
