5 Of The Prettiest Print Dresses

5 Of The Prettiest Print Dresses

It’s June and so there’s no better time to take a risk with a couple of pretty print dresses. Everything looks better in the sunshine.

Online retailer Finery London is overloaded right now with distinctive prints. This vibrant peonies print dress is ultra feminine with its frills and pleated sleeves, but the rich raspberry red colour and bold graphic blooms keep it contemporary too. If you’d like to try this on before you buy, it’s currently stocked in Brown Thomas too.

I love this shade of cobalt blue. It works equally well on pale and dark skin tones. The asymmetric hemline of this Zara dress gives the traditional wrap style a more high fashion feel.

This is one of the prettiest print dresses I’ve seen this season. It’s ideal for holidays when you’re feeling good and you don’t mind revealing a little more flesh than usual.

This colourful fiesta print dress has a real holiday vibe to it, and a hit of the Dolce & Gabbana SS17 collection too. I love the mix of maxi length with thigh-high splits.

There’s something very romantic about these shades of cornflower blue and lilac. I love the subtle frill detail around the armholes, and the side splits create a lovely airy feel.
