Floral dresses in the warmer months is nothing new. Most of us can’t wait to invest in a new posey print tea dress for summer weekends but for many the idea of a floral dress is a tad too feminine and girly. I personally like the idea of florals on clothing, however, rarely opt for them when purchasing summer dresses.
Determined, I went about seeking out some floral dresses that please my more grungy and masculine style of dressing. Here’s what I found:
Isabel Marant Etoile Floral Print Silk Dress
Isabel Marant is a tomboy by nature so any floral style dress she designs I know I’m gunna love! There is something quite Art Noveau about this long drop waist style of dress. The elongated sleeves give it a relaxed feel too. The mustard colour is unexpected, with a delicate black and white vine design, which is definitely more masculine than blooms. The sheer silhouette and crinkle chiffon material adds a feminine touch without being girly.
Paired with Gold oriental mules and silver hoops.

Daisy Dress by The Nude London
My next unfeminine floral dress is this daisy print number by The Nude London. Daisies immediately make me think of ditziness but this dress is super grungy and sorta hippy-ish too. The black helps with this and the daisies big, gigantic in your face flowers.
The floaty open sleeves give it a woodstock feel and the lace also adds to the vintage vibes.
I’ve paired it with a black oversized denim jacket, lobster emblazoned mules and these funky lolita glasses from Topshop. YALDI.

Ganni Flynn Lace Dress
My final unfeminine floral number is this breathtaking Italian inspired lace dress by Ganni. I bought this for my birthday night out from Liberty. It was one of those love at first sight moments I sometimes have with clothes.
The navy and red combination is definitely unusual and the fact the floral aspect is only shown in 2D lace means the floweriness of the dress is minimal. If anything, it’s more sexy than girlish.
The full skirt makes it extra fun to wear and I love the deep V on the chest showing the delicacy of the lace design against the skin.
I paired this with Gucci slip on mules.
