Inject some life into your outfit this season with a printed dress. During the day, prints in bright colours are a guaranteed way of livening up your look. As printed dresses can be quite busy, pare them down with neutral coloured accessories. Below are a few of my favourite printed day dresses available at the moment.
1 Topshop Cream Floral Meadow Printe Sleeveless Dress
This cream day dress features a vibrant floral print, making it perfect for wearing on a sunny summer’s day. It has a gathered waist and full skirt. It is quite a short dress, so take this into account if shorter hemlines aren’t your thing. A skinny red belt and nude ballet flats would be a great way of styling up this dress.
2 Diane Von Furstenberg Marnia Printed Cotton Dress
And abstract print is a pleasant alternative to more common floral prints. This sheer cotton dress has an intriguing all-over multicoloured print. It has a drawstring waist, handkerchief hem, and button fastenings throughout. When choosing accessories, try matching them with the colours in the dress. Neutral brown or tan leather accessories would be an easy match.
3 Dorothy Perkins Floral Print Dress
Most commonly found printed day dresses feature a floral pattern of some sort. This particular dress has a very vintage inspired floral pattern. It has a square neck, cap sleeves, and pleated skirt. Style this with a grey cardigan and tan brogues for a street smart look.
4 Cacharel Collared Printed Dress
Shirt dresses are a well-received choice for daytime dressing. This Cacharel dress is on the pricier side of things. It features an all-over mottled print, concealed button down front, and shirttail hem. The front hem sits at mid thigh, and the back hem reaches the back of the knees. Cinch in with a contrasting belt to create shape, or wear loose and layer over tights.
5 Milly Azores Printed Cotton and Silk-Blend Dress
This printed day dress has a fun, retro-inspired print. It has a drawstring waist, short sleeves, and splits at the side. It also has a plunging v-neck so it would best be worn with a singlet underneath. Alternatively, wear it on your next vacation with your favourite swimsuit underneath. Wear with metallic sandals and drop earrings to finish off the luxe resort vibe.
6 Topshop Red Flower Print Wrap Dress
Red printed day dresses are a smart choice for this season. This wrap sundress has v-neck front and back, back zip fastening, and tie waist. It also has an al-over graphic flower print. Pair with some neutral espadrilles to complement the summery vibe of the dress. Top it all off with a floppy straw hat.
7 Wal G Leaf Print Dress

For a more demure take on the printed day dresses trend, choose one in an austere navy colour. This dress features an all-over small leaf print in a navy and white colour combination. It has a square neckline, short sleeves, and a waist tie at the back. Pair with a cream blazer and black penny loafers for a smart casual look.
A printed dress is an effortless way of adding colour and interest to an outfit. From abstract prints to more subtle florals, there’s something for nearly everyone. Which of these printed day dresses do you like most?
