Angela requested a few picks for colorful floral or printed knee-length dresses, so here we go:
Boden Flowershow Dress – was $158, now $110.60
with code X4S2
I own this very dress in the tan polka dot print, and it is lightweight and lovely and just above knee length on me but can be ordered in a longer length. Angela is looking for wedding guest dresses, and this one would be ideal for outdoor weddings as it is cotton and machine washable. Available in sizes 2 – 18, including some tall and petite sizes. Also comes in ivory, tan, yellow, or blue polka dot print. This dress has some similar colors in the print and this one has a similar neckline, both available through size 36W.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Bryce Dress – was $298, now $130.99
Another gorgeous and wonderfully machine-washable dress that’s ideal for summer weddings! The black banded waist means you can add black shoes and accessories if you like, making this a great bet for evening weddings, too. But pull out the red or blue in that print instead if you’d rather go bold and bright. Knee-length on this 5’9″ model. Available in sizes XXS – L. This similar dress even includes black trim and is available through size 36W.
Ivy & Blu Maggy Boutique Drape Neck Printed Sheath Dress – was $118, now $50.99
Dresses that are truly knee-length and brightly colored are surprisingly hard to find! And a lot of the florals are dark like this one, but I loved this print so much I wanted to include it. Again, pull out a color in your accessories for day, consider reserving black for evening. This is the plus version in sizes 14W – 22W, also available in sizes 2, 4, and 12 here. Also Maggy London, the parent brand here, has lots of great floral/colorful knee-length frocks, but so few are on sale!
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful floral or printed knee-length dresses:
- eShakti – Customize your hem length from this vendor, and choose from dozens of fun prints in sizes 0 -36W. This polka dot print keyhole neckline dress is calling to me.
- Boden – So many pretty prints, and most dresses are knee length or below. Love this bold floral frock.
- ASOS – In the world of ASOS, “midi” means “knee-length,” so bear that in mind. but lots of cute dresses like this stunning botanical print. Petite, plus, and maternity options, too.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! It is definitely dress season in the thrift stores and since many garments are from years past, hemlines are likely to be a bit more modest than what you’ll find in the malls these days. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
