GO BOLD IN FLORALS
When Yara Shahidi wore this absolutely beautiful Gucci robe-style dress, that’s when I knew that graphics and colorful patterns were definitely going to pop for spring. Of course, if you are going to stunt for Memorial Day, you might as well go for the Gucci! This pleated-printed Gucci dress, which retails for $5,100, has all the classic making of a Gucci print with florals, animal motifs, and a ton of personality. And for a looser fit, this $5,500 velvet-trimmed silk midi dress from the line is also fab (I NEED THIS).
For a high-neckline floral dress, this $252 Ted Baker dress can easily be dressed up for brunch or church, as well as this $267 scalloped dress that boasts a nectar print in the middle of the skater fit. You can always wear pastel or nude heels to offset a colorful dress, in case you’re worried about clashing tones, colors, and prints.

For something more sultry, sexy, and perhaps sophisticated, I’d definitely recommend this wrap bodycon floral dress from Missguided, which not only slays in a bright red hue, but also has a plunging front neckline and a sexy side slit. If you’d like a longer cut, why not try a floral maxi dress with a sexy v-neck, like this fabulous one from New York & Company.
Not only is this patterned dress from H&M only $15, but it also goes up to a size 24 and gives you that designer vibe without the designer budget.
