Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Floral motifs have taken a lot of heat. They're often dismissed as predictable, especially for spring, when in fact they can be multi-faceted. There are the moody romantic florals, the cute dainty varieties, the exotic tropical versions, and the whimsical abstract styles. The blooms that walked the runways for spring/summer 2021 are familiar, but fresh. We want to make arrangements to wear all sorts of them! While last year's Laura Ingalls Wilder-inspired prairie dresses will still be around this season, consider alternative silhouettes too. Try out shorter floral dresses for night or a grand puff sleeve for special occasions. Trust us, when the temperature breaks 70, you'll want more than one floral dress to slip into. Ahead, shop 10 flower adorned dresses that will become the MVP of your blooming summer wardrobe.
