Florals don’t have to look matronly. In fact my husband hates me in anything floral and when I do wear florals he likes to remark on the fact that I’m wearing a pair of curtains! I hope this dress selected on Day 15 of the 2014 Dresses with Sleeves Challenge would escape his not so amusing humour! This Planet graphic floral dress with sleeves looks crisp and fresh – the graphic print gives a modern twist to the print . The pleat and twist details around the middle help define the silhouette and are a nice change from ruching but create a similar but more structured effect. The three quarter length sleeves are flattering.
Again this is a great dress for dressing up or down. Perfect for lunch with friends, or ideal to accessorise with a hat and heels for weddings or a day at the races.
At the time of writing this dress is on special offer at £79.20 at John Lewis.
