I’ll Have What She’s Having: A floral dress that looks fresh and neither old lady or juvenile
Try our expert style tips, on how to wear a floral dress with easy, fuss-free style.
Camilla Belle’s sexy floral Prada dress gave flower power an entirely new spin at last week’s Chanel dinner for the Tribeca Film Festival. I think one you should consider toying with on your own…
No shrinking violet, Belle’s floral number is one example of the new florals you should be on the look out for as she looks quite the lady while making a statement with crochet detailing in all the right spots.

Like most Prada pieces, her floral dress boasts a nod to the past with its utterly feminine silhouette and prim floating rose print while striking a contradiction with the unexpected, here cut-outs lend a sensual note to an otherwise classic dress. Yet her neck is covered in an attempt at modesty at its most elegant.
While Belle is admittedly young, and on a red carpet no less, that shouldn’t stop you from taking a cue from her as her floral dress could work on just about anyone of any age. Maybe your own weekends are less star studded, but who’s to say your floral selections don’t need an update?
Look for pieces that aren’t necessarily girly-girly, try something outside of the box with thoughtful flourishes that’ll keep you looking age-appropriate.
