Even though florals were never actually groundbreaking for spring, fall floral dresses are a different story. While the thought of flowers might bring to mind tje fresh blooms of May and June, botanical prints of marigold and brown have a certain charm that feels especially magical when the cold(er) weather hits.
Time is obviously a construct because we’ve somehow almost made it through summer (how’d that happen?), but autumnal vibes are creeping in and we’re swapping our bright tie-dyes for moodier prints from here on out. Fall floral dresses pair perfectly with chunky cardigans, suede boots, and a hot latte for good measure—and the best ones don’t sacrifice trending details like puff sleeves or ruffles, either.
The pandemic isn’t over, so it might feel pointless to even bother getting dressed in “real” clothes right now. But the great thing about these ditsy floral dresses is they’re cozy enough to wear while curled up on the couch deep in a TikTok hole (happens to the best of us) or traveling the world from your back porch. Thanks to chiffon, ruched stitching, and smocked housedress silhouettes, you’ll actually be as comfortable in them as you are in your matching sweatsuit. Ahead, find 21 of the season’s best fall floral dresses to shop now—ideally to be worn as “Ladies of the Canyon” plays softly in the background.
