Holly Willoughby wearing M&S floral midi dress, yellow cardigan and black ankle boots




Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

Printed floral dresses are a forever buy. We love Holly Willoughby’s long-sleeved, midi-length styling 

Whatever the British weather throws at you – spring showers, summer storms, autumn breezes or wet winters – a pretty, long-sleeved floral mini dress is a fast-track to style sunshine. Well, if it works for Holly Willoughby, who are we to argue? To steal her style, look out for uplifting colourways and strong prints – we consider printed florals the fashion equivalent of buying a bouquet of blooms. Waisted styles are flattering and simple, and we have options in mini, midi and maxi, so you can find the perfect dress for you. On colder days, style mini dresses with boots like Holly’s black cowboy-style pair or opt for tan or pale numbers and switch for box-fresh trainers or sandals when the weather warms up.
