The watercolor print is not a fresh trend, contrary to what some may think. This design has been around since 2009 and has resurfaced from time to time.

Recently, though, we noticed that watercolor dresses have become increasingly popular, even on the red carpet.

There’s something so dreamy about dresses that feature the watercolor print. With its light brush strokes applied on soft fabric, these frocks look like not just wearable art but also stylish options no matter what season.

Because this print is normally set on rich fabrics like silk and satin, watercolor dresses are typically costlier than your normal casual frocks. We scouted our favorite online shops and found a barrage of options that feature this beyond lovely print.
