The Find: Pretty Prints for Summer

Every time I turn around, one of the influencers I follow is wearing a printed caftan or a loose-fitting floral maxi dress.  They all look so comfortable and feminine.  But when I go to buy one, they’re usually sold out.  So last night, I spent hours hunting on Like to Know It for dresses that fit the bill.

And you know who had them?  Mango.

The medallion print, the voluminous sleeve, the tiered skirt, this Chufy x Mango printed maxi is gorgeous.  Mango has so many fantastic long dresses, that it can be tough to choose just one.

This frill tiered maxi in a pretty sea glass green caught my eye as well.  It’s sub <$80.  And I like that you can tie the waist so it doesn’t fit like a sack.

This floral cotton dress is just the star of the show.  I adore the print.  The style is relaxed, but not Little House on the Prairie.

    Do you have suggestions for how to wear these? When I wear the floaty, floral things it never really looks current—more cult-member. But I know they can look current! Any tips would be great 🙂

      I second this request. Except instead of quirky cult member, I look like a dumpy retiree. How to do boho that looks more beachy chic? Especially if you are not flat chested or otherwise built like a 12 yr old boy.

    And honestly, do we even think these look that flattering? I just got some from targets new line (from the post earlier this week – it’s a lot of fabric and it’s heavy).

    I want the idea to work, but I would say these aren’t even that flattering on the influencers.

      I don’t follow other fashion bloggers/influencers, but from I see on the streets, most current trends are kind of intentionally unflattering. I could see these dresses working on some women, but they’re definitely not easy to pull off (and would definitely skew muumuu on me).
