23 Plus Size Floral Dresses That Will Put Some Spring In Your Step This Winter
For whatever reason, floral patterns feel more common in warmer months, making it much more difficult to find plus size floral dresses that suit the fall and winter seasons. Everyone remembers Miranda Priestly's infamous comment in The Devil Wears Prada — "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking," right? It makes the point that certain prints are associated with specific seasons. More than that, it questions whether that association is particularly a positive one.
So if you want to wear flower prints in winter? There's nothing stopping you. Style rules are arbitrary and wearing what you want, when you want, is a liberating process. Even if that is just wearing a type of pattern when most people won't or rocking florals in fall and winter.
These floral plus size dresses can be worn on all kinds of different occasions, so if you want flowers to feel fancy or floral to feel more down to earth, there's a dress on this list for you. Some of these dresses continue with light and bright floral prints of summer, while others opt for darker tones and flowers that are more in keeping with the winter months, but most important: They all feature florals, so you can head into the colder months with a little bit of spring in your step.
