The One Summer Dress Style You Won't Have to Give Up Come Fall

There are many reasons we're sad to see summer coming to an end—among them, the reality that several of our favorite warm-weather pieces will soon be retired to the back of our closets. One style that'll remain at the forefront? A dark floral printed midi dress.

In case you haven't discovered the versatile piece for yourself, allow us to convince you that you need one. Take Thandie Newton's recent getup, for example: Her breezy Ulla Johnson frock shines when worn with woven wedges and see-through sunnies. Once the temperature drops, the hero item also looks great styled with tights, booties, and a sleek coat. A standout dress that can be worn year-round? There's no better sartorial investment.
