Pink Prints Are Everywhere


Let’s face it, feminine printed midi dresses are everywhere. This is especially true for the spring and summer seasons where all pieces follow some sort of pink-inspired pattern. However, that doesn’t mean it’s overdone. In fact, the Aje Enchanted Plunge midi dress is one of the most unique pieces I’ve found. While yes, it’s pink and covered in florals, its ruffles offer a surprising touch of fun. Plus, it looks even better when paired with the Alexander McQueen embellished mules and Gucci Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag. Although, you could pair it with more pink if that’s your cup of tea.


On the more casual side, the Faithfull the Brand Tortugas midi dress shines in its own unique way. With a more tropical-holiday vibe, this piece is especially helpful on ultra-hot days or vacation escapes. Style it with the Ferragamo Zina flats and Gucci Horsebit bag for a trendy SS24 look you’ll reach for again and again. Something about summertime styles always manages to catch my attention—especially when you don’t have a trip planned. Although, these vacation-ready dresses give us a reason to.

Never Underestimate Printed Midi Dresses


Printed midi dresses come in all shape sand forms, but the most overlooked are prints with a white base. While yes, this usually means less color, these patterns are among the easiest to style. For example, the Alix of Bohemia Kaia midi dress is a look you could dress up or dress down. Its white base gives you the ability to style with neutrals or pull from its vivid blues. In particular, the Anthropologie Raffia tote and Carrie Forbes Naima sandals pair beautifully with this piece—tying in a sunny touch for late spring or summer.


For those in search of a more formal look, the Zimmermann Natura gown is one you can’t miss. Unique in its shape and certainly elegant with its print, Zimmermann know just how to deliver memorable looks. I recommend peeking at the Alexander McQueen leather mules and Oscar de la Renta O Pochette raffia shoulder bag if you plan on snagging this one. This trio is destined for your most special occasions—especially with wedding season coming up. So, if you’re unsure where to start for the summer, make printed midi dresses a priority.
