From floral and gingham pints to bright block colors and soft pastel hues. Whatever your style, we’re certain you’ll find the picnic dresses of your dreams right here in this edit. What’s more, after the past year, your closet deserves this a designer update! That’s why we’ve included irresistible designs from the likes of Spell, Camilla, Erdem, Sleeper, and more. Any one of these dresses will make the perfect one-and-done look for your next picnic. And, seeing as we’re certain you’ll be invited to many this season, who could blame you for adding more than one dress to your cart!
As perfect as these pretty picnic dresses are for lunch in the park, we’ve no doubt you’ll want to wear them elsewhere too! After all, what’s better than beautiful designer dresses you can style up or down for multiple occasions. Firstly, we’re head over heels for the Rory dress by Azeeza. From its soft pink gingham print and voluminous puffed sleeves to the beautiful square neckline and floaty asymmetric skirt. This dress is gorgeous from all angles and looks as pretty with flats for a picnic and it does with heels for a brunch date or garden party. Trust us, once you slip into this romantic midi, you’ll never want to take it off.
Another essential dress for the season ahead comes from Reformation and their Hyland, floral print midi. Its flattering smocked bodice, square neckline, and unique Virago sleeves make for an undeniably romantic silhouette. What’s more, it has a beautiful mid-length skirt with a thigh-high split, offering a modern edge to its overall design. Don’t mind us, we’ll just be living in this dress from now until fall.
When your picnic’s more than a simple lunch date, these pretty picnic dresses have you covered. The Dream Garden cotton midi by Farm Rio, for example, is one not to be missed! We’re in awe of the open V-neckline made all the more special thanks to the addition of halter-style spaghetti straps. Additionally, you’ll adore the oversized puff sleeves, colorful tropical print, and gathered bust detailing. Wear this dress with simple, heeled tan sandals for an unmissable entrance!
Lovers of the boho aesthetic will adore the Sundown gown by Spell. Made from organic cotton, this breathable, floaty dress is the quintessential warm-weather look for summer picnics. It buttons through the front so you can wear it as open or closed as you wish. Additionally, it has an elasticized waistband to define and flatter your figure from every angle.
