We all know the saying: “April showers bring May flowers”. Aside from the flowers, it happens to be pretty fashion-accurate too. As the cold, dreary days begin to magically warm up, pretty floral prints are beginning to appear on every garment imaginable, namely dresses. Drew Barrymore proves it to be true.

The actress and talk show host, 47, attended the Variety Power of Women event Thursday in New York. She was photographed wearing a long dress with pink and green flowers from designer Giambattista Valli with bright pink pointy toe pumps and a blush flap clutch.

We couldn’t stop thinking about her dramatic dress, from the flowing silhouette to the fluttering sleeves to the stunning watercolor design that looks like something out of a Monet painting. Hence our need for some fresh flowers for summer.

Flowers make sense for most warm weather occasions, weddings in the first place. The not-so-revolutionary impression is perfect for wedding guest dresses because it exudes romance and joy. It is metaphorically complementary to the theme of the day because, like flowers, love literally blossoms. The dreamy botanical pattern is also a fun choice for graduation parties, backyard barbecues, tropical vacations and just about any other occasion – the possibilities are endless!

Barrymore’s latest look is your sign to freshen up your floral dress rotation with a few new options. Since hers is nearly sold out in all sizes and retails for $4,800, we looked for similar styles on a budget.

Let Drew Barrymore remind us of a dress that has endless use in our closets. Keep scrolling to shop floral dresses inspired by her latest look.
