These Floral Dresses Are 2022’s Newest Must-Have Styles

These Floral Dresses Are 2022’s Newest Must-Have Styles

As Miranda Priestly so infamously said, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”

While the sarcasm was heavy-handed in her comment, we simply can’t deny that there’s no better time of the year for a floral dress than when the wildflowers are blooming all around us. It’s classic for a reason: after the coldest, greyest season of the year, we all crave color and sunshine, and floral dresses deliver that in one effortless twirl.

Not to mention, floral dresses are more versatile than they’re given credit for. You can throw a sweatshirt or sweater on top for a casual, on-campus look, or you can grab a wide-brim hat and strappy sandals for an ensemble inspired by a picturesque vineyard. All this to say, floral dresses are beloved for good reason, so go ahead and fill your closet with all the flowery frocks you want.

En Saison Detail Midi Dress

Our Score

4.45

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: The quilted floral pattern of this dress paired with its ruffle sleeves and high neckline make us think it should be starring alongside Timothée Chalamet in Little Women. And we mean that in a good way, because if you haven’t heard, Victorian style is having a revival.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Here’s why this dress is worth its $150+ price tag: It’s made of 100% mid-weight cotton, is lined, and has a loose, tiered structure that will be comfortable even during the dog days of summer.

4.45

Goodthreads Georgette Smock-Back Cami Maxi Dress

Our Score

4.5

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: This long floral dress is cute enough to wear on its own, but it’s also the perfect piece to throw a denim jacket or sweater on top of. We’re already dreaming up a look that combines the red poppy version of this dress with some heeled espadrilles.

USER REVIEW: “The fit is so flattering, the straps are adjustable, and it has pockets. It’s unlined and breezy. Perfect for hot, humid summers, and the print hides sweat marks! It can easily be dressed up or down. The solid colors could even be great as a casual bridesmaid dress option.”

Universal Thread Balloon Long Sleeve Button-Front Dress

Our Score

4.5

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: We already know there’s a subgroup of our readers who are saying, “Sleeves? YES!” We’re with you, because sometimes it’s more comfortable to put a light layer of fabric between your skin and the unforgiving sun. And the fact that they’re adorable balloon sleeves? Even better.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: This knee-length dress is available in two floral prints in addition to a classic brown gingham pattern. And you’ll be happy to learn that it has side pockets as well.

Anthropologie Somerset Maxi Dress

Our Score

4.6

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: Anthropologie knows how to make maximalism work. If you’re not convinced, see above, because somehow the bright, bold patterns aren’t the most interesting thing about the Somerset Maxi Dress—the structure is. With a deep V-neck, a smocked waistline, and three tiers, there’s nothing understated about it.

USER REVIEW: “This dress is phenomenal! I bought the black color pre-loved from Poshmark… and fell in love with it so much that I’m buying two more colors at full price! It’s beyond comfortable, and the pockets are magnificent. I can’t say enough great things about this dress. Never felt more beautiful.”

4.6

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: Reformation is another brand that we’d dub dress experts, and here’s what they have to say about the Crimini dress: “​​If you're into looking good with literally zero effort, this dress may be right for you.” And isn’t that all of us?

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: The Crimini midi dress is available in five bright floral patterns in addition to a zany, almost-animal-print pattern they’re calling “Blitz.” It has a sexy side slit, adjustable straps, and V-neck line.

WAYF Plaza Cut Out Maxi Dress

Our Score

4.7

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: Modest, but not afraid to show just a little midriff, the Plaza Maxi Dress is a high contender for “best dress to throw on at the last minute, but make it look like you planned this outfit weeks ago.”

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: The bright, sky-blue floral pattern of this dress is eye-catching and delicate, which provides a great contrast to the bold puff sleeves, tiered skirt, and of course, the cutouts. 


Free People Feeling Groovy Maxi Dress

Our Score

4.8

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: Being one of the best boho designers around, it only makes sense that Free People and florals go hand-in-hand. Their Feeling Groovy Midi Dress features an intricate, flower-heavy pattern that pairs perfectly with the loose, flowy fit. Just add a belt and a hat for a look inspired by the likes of Stevie Nicks.

USER REVIEW: “This dress is comfortable, effortless, and extremely versatile. The quality is amazing, and it feels like it’ll last a long time. If you’re on the edge of buying this, just do it—you won’t regret it.”
