Somewhere, the flowers are still in bloom. That somewhere happens to be on our favourite celebs, runways, and now your wardrobe. This fall and winter’s blooms aren’t bright and sunny, though, so ditch all whimsical daisies and tropical prints from sight. For the chilly months, florals have an air of darkness, drama and rich luxury.
Here They Grow
On everything from richly textured brocade trousers to printed, statement coats, florals have certainly grown up. Demure and sensual roses on bases of black and in autumnal hues have poked their way through tough, edgy looks this season. We’re huge fans of this look on model Jessica Stam, who shows that florals need not read cartoonish. Rather, these prints evoke a darker sort of fantasy and femininity.
Tips To Wear
The Givenchy and Alice +Olivia runway looks were just two of the many glam floral looks seen on fall’s runways. We picked these (pun intended) to show that one bold, dark floral piece can be worn many ways this season. If you go for the statement of a luxurious dark floral coat or jacket, you can pair it with edgy black leather pieces so it stands out — or make it a maximalist’s treasure with contrasting prints. Even other florals will pop with these prints, so go for more is more if that’s your pick.
