Wear Floral Prints Into Autumn- Here’s How
For fashionistas who are pining for the days of fresh summer tulips and refreshing orchard blossoms, autumn still offers an opportunity to bring the spirit of an ethereal garden into the cooler temperatures. For Fall 2015, wintry floral patterns reigned supreme, as the look of luxurious brocade flowers and luscious roses dominated the season’s catwalks. If you’re already bored to death of oatmeal hues and solid grey knits, bring new life into your fall wardrobe with these flowery style ideas for the weeks ahead.
This season, slip out of your cashmere sweater and black jeans and into a day dress accented with swirls of blossoms (as spotted on the Suno runway). For a casual approach to the autumn florals trend, look for a basic black midi dress with three-quarter sleeves and a waist-cinching silhouette. Meanwhile, brightly coloured blooms in shades of red and purple bring a funky twist to an otherwise classic frock. Bring a playful finish to the ensemble with black socks and strappy suede heels for a touch of whimsy.
Even if you’re channelling a heavenly garden, you can still walk proud in a chic ensemble which screams business. As the temperatures drop, bring ladylike charm back into your office wardrobe by swapping your power suit for a flared black knee-length skirt detailed with striking red roses (as seen at Dolce & Gabbana). To create an elegant hourglass figure, style your softly falling printed skirt with a fitted black knit top. Slip on a pair of patterned pumps, a black statement watch and dangling metallic earrings to complete your look.
For a night out, pair your sweet floral prints with contrasting patterns for a flirty and carefree take on the trend (as spotted at Trina Turk). Try accessorizing a striped black fit and flare frock with a jaunty blossom-printed autumn coat. If you’re ready to take your quirky evening statement to the next level, emphasize your flawless legs and the vibrant shades of the coat in a pair of high-heeled magenta ankle boots. Wrap up your style with leopard printed beret and an expertly knotted skinny scarf before you hit the city streets for the night.
