Did you think you had to give up on your floral brights with the last days of summer? Think again! Fall florals are the cool older cousin of summer flower prints. These florals feel all grown-up, playing with a deep color palette and edgy design ideas. Think twisted fairy tales and darkly gothic romance. What’s more – fall florals were a major story on many of the fall/winter catwalks. So there is no excuse not to jump aboard this trend.
We have been raiding Shop It To Me to discover our favorite floral pieces for fall.
Deep and Decadent
Setting swirling florals against a black or inky background creates a decadent vibe that feels perfect for fall. We love this Floral Chiffon Dress from Haute Hippie. It does a great job of combining a vintage tea dress shape with dark floral romance.
Fall florals aren’t limited to your outfit with a range of gorgeous accessories and footwear all available in muted autumnal shades. An ankle boot seems the obvious choice for the season and there are several gorgeous contenders around. We settled on these Dr. Martens Pascal Boots which provide a floral twist on a fashion classic.
One floral trend we have fallen for this season is the use of embroidered and embellished floral design. It adds layers and texture to your look, creating a head-turning finish. This Alice + Olivia Merrill Dress takes a muted blue chiffon design and turns it up with beautifully detailed floral embroidery. You will feel like a heroine in this romantic maxi dress.
Bohemian style never really goes out of fashion – it just reinvents itself with the passing seasons. This season sees a 70s take on the look, with lots of folk-inspired florals and boho blouses to choose from. This Ella Moss Floral Top complete with tiny embroidered flower detailing is a perfect update for your fall wardrobe.
One place fall florals, and particularly floral embroidery works well is with denim. Flower-strewn jeans and jackets look amazing against neutral basics. These Michael Kors Floral Embroidered Boyfriend Jeans are an easy way to embrace a hint of fall floral without looking overdone. They are great with sneakers and a tee for school or off-duty days.
Head to Toe Floral
The ultimate way to do fall florals this season is all over – so be brave in an eye-catching print that goes from head toe. Pick co-ords with simple lines to create a clean finish or invest in a jumpsuit for an easy, full floral look. This Jack by Bb Dakota Jumpsuit has a gorgeous fall color palette and an easy to wear shape.
