A bright frilly floral dress and a white lace dress are not the only summer dresses out here this season. It’s time for you to meet another summer dress. The dark floral shirt dress. Believe me, once you see all the potentials of this dress, you will wear it from dawn to dusk, from city to the beach and everywhere else.
As promised on my Instagram, I’m finally sharing all the details about this dark floral shirt dress I wore the other day by the sea and earlier this week in the city as a kimono (in case you missed, check it here). But before I tell you everything there is to tell about my look, a few words about this dark print and the cut of this summer dress.
DARK FLORAL SHIRT DRESS
With all this stripes, checks and gingham everywhere we slightly forgot the one pattern that is a summer’s staple. Yes, the floral print. I bet you have at least one floral dress in your closet. Surely, the floral print is not like it used to be. Luckily, I say. It has crossed to the darker side and become more mature, elegant and chicer. Moreover, it became versatile. And all the sudden it became the pattern you can wear from morning to evening. Especially when on a shirt dress.
The shirt dress printed in dark, gothic flowers. Not that this is something new, as we are bringing this dark, gothic fashion trend from the last summer. Well, yes, it seems like this fashion trend is one that is still around. And I can see why.
2# REASONS TO WEAR DARK FLORALS THIS SUMMER
For one, because it’s so versatile. You can wear the dark floral print from morning to evening. Remember, how I wore my dark floral shirt dress like a kimono together with the slip top and wide-leg trousers the other day over here.
Moreover, because you can wear the dark floral dress everywhere. In the city and even by the sea. And this is just the place I’m wearing it this time. On my stroll through Piran, small port town by the Adriatic Sea.
Finally, you can wear it all year long. Yes even in fall. Check here to see how.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
In short, my style this time is all about this dark floral shirt dress. Honestly, I wish to wear this dark shirt dress all the time. Surely you must have noticed this. After all, despite my candy crush and all those pink outfits, I’m wearing lately (Ps. in case you missed my pink outfits, be sure to check my latest one over here), I’m a dark fashionista. I love and adore black and anything dark. Can’t help it. Nor I want to.
Honestly, I never really understood why everyone is so crazy about everything white in the summer. You know what I mean. And no, don’t say you feel hot in black because when it comes to feeling hot, it’s not really about the color or print, but about the material and the cut.
Trust me; you won’t feel hot in your dark floral dress if you go for a clean cut and sheer material. In short, simply put on a silky shirt dress like I did this time. Ps. I found a bunch of beautiful dark floral shirtdresses you can wear this summer. Swipe up to find them in the gallery above or shop similar dress to the one I’m wearing this time over here.
DARK FLORAL SHIRT DRESS BY THE SEA
Perhaps a dark floral shirt dress is not exactly a dress one would wear to the beach at first glance, but with right accessories and the right shoes, you can wear it everywhere. And what’s even better anytime.
I styled my dark floral shirt dress with one of my favourite summer sandals. The blue Aquazzura sandals (you also saw me wearing these sandals on my summer picnic by the sea over here). You can get these stunning sandals on sale over here.
I finished my look with the raffia basket bag from Nannancay (the same bag I wore with the pink cocktail dress over here). You can shop it with white or black pom poms here. Although, I can’t guarantee you it will still be in the stock by the time you finish reading this blog post. Surely you know how popular the raffia bags are these days. Luckily, the raffia bag I’m wearing comes in different colours, so be sure to check other raffia bags in the gallery above, too.
