Summer event season is here with a bang. We’re certainly making up for lost time this year with weddings, birthday bashes and summer occasions like Ascot back in the calendar. The Great Dress Hunt can require serious planning, but there’s one collection that is really helping in this department. Karen Millen is known for its beautiful floral dresses, and this year, it has really excelled with a special collaboration with botanical artist Rui Jiang. She has created spectacular watercolour images inspired by her love for all the flowers in the British countryside. She really studies the colour and form of flowers in detail. She grows violas and roses in her own garden and meticulously examines each bud before picking up the paintbrush.
And these dress designs perfectly complement her watercolour prints. They all have voluminous fabric and exaggerated silhouettes, which give each piece a rippling movement and sense of romance. The collection is filled with occasion-ready winners, but we’ve hand-selected five that we know will be super popular this year, including a cute minidress and a halterneck slip. Keep scrolling for the five dresses that are beyond perfect for your next wedding or summer party.
