Why buy a plus size floral dress?

Floral dresses are romantic, flattering and often comfortable. They’re great for outdoor weddings, picnics, and days on the town. They go fantastic with denim jackets. You can go from day to night by pairing them with a killer pair of heels or knee high boots and some gold hoop earrings.

What should you look for in a plus size floral dress?

  • Material: Most floral dresses are made from lightweight fabrics that are breathable and designed to keep you cool in warm weather. Choosing a floral dress made from comfortable and tear-resistant materials is a must when it comes to the longevity of your dresses. Durable materials like polyester and rayon are machine washable and not as prone to tearing or tearing as delicate materials like chiffon. Polyester and viscose also tend to be less translucent and have more stretch while still draping nicely on the body.
  • Style: Floral dresses come in a variety of styles. There are long maxi dresses that are flowy and romantic, off the shoulder boho dresses, slouchy mini dresses, wrap dresses, strapless dresses and more. The great thing about these different styles of dresses is that they look great on everyone and there is a floral dress for every mood and occasion.
  • Sample: Floral designs are incredibly versatile in colour, size, vibrancy and the flowers used. If you prefer delicate and romantic prints, a floral pattern in pastel colors is an excellent choice for beach vibes. Large and bold patterns are great for making a statement in a more casual or edgy look. A subtle lace floral pattern is great for formal occasions and can easily be worn to a wedding or cocktail party. Choosing a pattern that suits your personal style is a must when choosing the right floral dress for your closet.

How to style a plus size floral dress for the office?

The great thing about floral dresses is that they look pretty on all body types and can be comfortable for most women. You can also easily switch your floral dress between seasons by pairing it with a leather jacket, knitted tights and boots in cooler weather.
