Trending: Dark, Romantic Floral Prints
Inject your fall wardrobe with a touch of flowery edge
Moody, romantic flower prints are fashionably modern and seasonably perfect. The trend is unexpectedly dark and wintry and feminine with an edge.
This season’s dresses and skirts bloom in bold prints of tossed stems and scattered bouquets, for day. For evening, long airy dresses shine in oversized flowery prints, adorned with sequins, beading and appliques. Embroidered blooms give a tough and tender edge to outerwear on leather moto jackets, satiny bomber styles, and cold weather coats. The bold floral arrangements have even made their way onto accessories, embellishing shoes, boots, bags and belts.
With a garden of wonderful flowery options available to update your cold weather wardrobe, here are tips on how to make the trend work for you.
Pick a Flower Print
Big, bold blooms on black, navy and aubergine backgrounds are not your usual ladylike flower prints. For those who find the new prints a bit overwhelming on dresses or long skirts, shop for one accent item instead, as a trendy update to the basics you already own –especially in black. A brand new short satiny floral skirt worn with your own black tights, black booties, and a crunchy cropped sweater is just one easy way to go for the trend and make it your own.
Style Them With An Edge
What’s most important, when pulling together a flowery look is to style it with an edge. In other words pair floral dresses, skirts and pants with a leather jacket, bag or boots. Pieces with studs or zippers and metal hammered jewelry, will also add the balance fall florals need to look romantic in that very modern way.
If you are one of the brave fashionistas for whom layering is your favorite fashion challenge, you probably already know that a mix of multiple floral prints and blooms worn with plaid or herringbone are more unexpected options.
Floral Accessories Aren’t Dainty
The edgy flower patterns on boots, party pumps, sneakers, bags and more, might be your best garden variety investment for fall and winter. They’ll make everything “old” look fresh again.
