The floral-print dress

In winter, we often gravitate towards darker, more muted tones when getting dressed, so adding some beautiful prints and patterns is a great way to keep your wardrobe feeling vibrant. A retro-inspired floral tea dress, like this round-neck midi, is a wise investment that will earn its keep during the cooler months. The whimsical pattern and figure-skimming cut make a subtle nod to the Seventies. Feeling the chill on dark, frosty mornings? Try layering with a knitted sweater vest and teaming with chunky boots to ground the look firmly in 2024.
