Cute Printed Dresses For Years To Come


Trends are great, but cute printed dresses might not be so cute years from now. Although we’re advocates for experimenting with the latest style movements, it’s always a good idea to keep some timeless pieces on hand. The easiest way to do this with prints is to choose patterns that you know you’d love 2, 3, or even 5 years down the road. Unsure where to start? We’ve got an idea of two dresses that will sure catch your eye.


The KIKA VARGAS Ronda Ruffled-trim Floral-print Taffeta Dress is by far a wonderful piece to adore for a while. Floral prints, along with other classics, are one of the patterns that are easiest to style no matter the trends. While trending colors will definitely play a part here, you can easily get away with neutrals and pastels. After all, doesn’t it seem like we bring pieces like these out every springtime? Similarly, the DRIES VAN NOTEN Floral-print Cotton Dress is another style you can always count on. Easy to dress up or down, it’s really cute printed dresses like these that can save your day—any day.

Embrace The Wild Side Of Patterns


Cute printed dresses aren’t just plaid or floral. There’s much more to patterns where these traditional favorites came from. Whether it’s incorporating fun, exciting shapes or embracing new shades—prints are a great way to diversify your closet. Not to mention, having a couple on hand is always a wonderful idea for any season. The more colors, the more options you have to style these pieces—and anyway goes!


Our most favorite is the DRIES VAN NOTEN Cape-effect Asymmetric Draped Floral-print Chiffon Dress. Easy to match with bags and shoes, this piece is just perfect for a day out on the town. If you feel like going bolder, there’s the PACO RABANNE Asymmetric Ruffled Tie-dyed Stretch-jersey Mini Dress. While vibrant printed dresses like these are often overlooked for their complexity, we’d recommend going all out. It’s not every year that styles like these are trending—and there’s simply too many to not take advantage.
