Whether you opt for a billowing maxi or a short and sweet mini, a floral dress is a must-have item for any event.

If you're a fan of maxi styles, then why not follow in Lauren Conrad's footsteps and snap up a tiered dress by Dôen.

Lily Aldridge, Sarah Hyland and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are all fans of this brand, and it's not hard to see why. They create floaty bohemian dresses meaning many of their pieces are perfect all figure types without losing an ounce of style cred.

Lauren's dress is called the 'Saffron' and features an all-over folk print atop a tiered silhouette and statement neckline.

During their travels, the altruistic friends had the opportunity 'to visit organizations working with artisans and entrepreneurs.'

They met a myriad of inspirational female creators who were designing 'beautiful products, but lacking access to a larger platform and essential resources to exercise economic autonomy,' according to The Little Market web page. 

Conrad's vast knowledge of the fashion industry combined with Hannah's in 'nonprofits and human rights advocacy,' allowed the women to create a nonprofit that advocated for 'dignified, safe jobs and fair, living wages.'
