Typically relegated to spring and summer, floral prints paraded down runways including Peter Som, Badgley Mischka, and Michael Kors earlier this year at Fall Fashion Week. But there’s a difference between seeing fall florals on Karlie or Joan and knowing how to recreate the look from your own closet. Read on for some tips on extending your flower power into September and beyond…
Dress: Sad to leave behind your favorite summer frock when the leaves start changing? Good news: you don’t have to. Pair a floral dress with tights, boots, and a cardigan for an easy transition into fall. Choose pieces that pick up on neutral tones in the pattern. Alternatively, throw on a dark turtleneck underneath, like Pink Peonies does here.
Bag: Pair a Clutch-Wallet with subdued fall tones to incorporate the floral trend in a subtle but interesting way.
Accents: Brights are big this fall! Check out Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for some palette inspiration, then grab a floral scarf. Pantone IDs Aluminum and Cognac as two big neutral colors for fall – look for a print that incorporates one of them, and pair with solid pieces in your chosen neutral to soften the look.
Love you some florals? Better hop on. This trend isn’t going anywhere.
