Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Printed Knee-length Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Angela requested a few picks for colorful floral or printed knee-length dresses, so here we go:

boden flowershow dress

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 and blue floral dress

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Boden – So many pretty prints, and most dresses are knee length or below. Love this bold floral frock.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. ( can help you locate stores near you.)
