Forget the ditsy patterns of summer – this year, winter florals are all about deep colours and show-stopping fabrics. Think sultry burgundies, pewters and forest greens paired with soft velvets, shiny plisse and delicate chiffon.
In fact, A/W17’s offering of floral dresses are so darn glorious that we’ve handpicked our favourite 50. There are pinafores to be layered under cosy jumpers (such as which is calling out for a cream turtleneck), long sleeve dresses to protect arms from the cold (throw on wooly tights under ), and pieces that can be styled down for the office or glitzed up for party season (chuck a winter coat over for work, and pair with party shoes for the evening).
And the best part? These anti-saccharine florals work for any occasion – from meetings to weddings – and can be styled to suit any sartorial taste. If you prefer a casual, off-duty look, go for a chunky oversized knit layered over a floral slip. To make a statement, add knee-high boots. Or to add a rock and roll edge to a blossomy dress, simply pair with a leather or suede aviator jacket.
Simply scroll through our edit of the best floral dresses for winter to find your ‘one’ (or, you know, 50).
