Floaty Chiffon Floral Dresses: 2 Popular Types

A dress will always make you look pretty and feminine, but nothing can top the beauty and grace of a floaty, chiffon floral dress.

When you want to pull out all the stops for a romantic date or special celebration, this is the perfect thing to wear. Here are two of my favorite chiffon, floral dresses online right now.

I get a lot of emails from readers asking me what to wear to a baby shower, bridal shower, christening, afternoon tea, or special birthday party. This Tommy Hilfiger floral chiffon midi dress is definitely something I would suggest.

Just think about the mood of these types of events. They’re ladylike, refined, pretty, and most of all, a time to celebrate being feminine. And that’s exactly what this dress does.

The soft yellow and gray mix, the delicate floral print, and the way the chiffon swishes and flows all reinforce a woman’s femininity. In a time when jeans and tees rule, this yellow floral chiffon dress is pure, girly dress-up!

This fun, flirty dress is especially lovely because of the stunning, pleated halter neckline that highlights the shoulders and flatters the bust. And the way it nips in at the waist, highlighted by that thin, gray belt is so delicate and figure-flattering!

This striking silhouette reminds me of the dress Marilyn Monroe wore in that famous photo of her standing over the subway grate with her skirt blowing up!

Here’s the dress without all the twirling. The maxi length is trendy at the moment and balances out the bare shoulders. This floral chiffon midi dress is a beauty!

You’ll need a good strapless bra for this dress, but it’s worth it. Spanx high waist shorts also help to smooth out any lumps and bumps.

As for shoes, I chose these block heel clear sandals to keep the look light and airy. Metallics always work, and the silver complements the gray and white florals. The square toe is trendy and makes the dress look very modern.

Some women prefer to show more of their legs (especially if you are short), so I have a short floral chiffon dress to show you.

Pretty in pink! This cute pink floral chiffon dress has a sweet quality to it. I think that is partly because of the colors, the ruffles, and the pinafore shape.

It’s cute, where the first dress was more elegant- both chiffon but with a different feel.

I paired my Tommy Hilfiger dress with this cool Margaux Satchel by Kate Spade. The necklace is Kendra Scott, with a similar cuff here.

The gold chain sandals are oldies but goodies from @michael kors (similar) and the purple shaded glasses are Quay.

I think it is important to note that you don’t want heavy shoes with a light chiffon dress. Keep your shoes light-looking and refined.

  1. Thank you for your post. You helped this mother of the groom to have just the right dress for the bridal shower. I was able to find the yellow Tommy Hilfiger new with tags on ebay for a very good price!
