Don’t want to give up on your summer florals? Neither do we, which is why the many darker, moody fall floral options we’re seeing for fall are so inspiring. At once feminine and a little bit tough, these pieces are some of our favorites for the upcoming season.
Floral Embroidered Leather Jackets
Classic leather jackets can be updated well with some floral embroidery, like this one from Sandy Liang that’s the perfect mix of tough and sweet. Wear it over sundresses now and with drapey tees and skinny jeans later.
Blouses With An Edge
The traditional floral blouse gets street-smart with a black background and some zippers when it’s done by 3.1 Philip Lim. Pair it with an a-line skirt now and slim cut black pants later. Bonus points for pairing it with suede or leather pants.
Floral Bombers For The Win
The silhouette is trending and easy to wear, so why not add some sweet embroidery? This one by Needle & Thread is just about perfect with anything from casual shorts and a tee now and fitted midi dresses later.
Dress It Up
Everything you love about your summer sundresses can be translated into autumn with a dress like this one from Ulla Johnson. It’ll work with bare legs and lace-up sandals or flats right now, and black tights and ankle boots later.
Put It On A Boot
Embellished boots are one of the key trends for fall, so why not bring some embroidered florals to help transition your summer looks into autumn? These Aquazzura booties would be perfect with a casual dress or cropped pants now, and skinny pants and longer blazers or sweaters later.
Florals for fall are easier than you think. It’s all about the color palette (keep the backgrounds dark at least) and the silhouette of the pieces in question. Think long sleeves, ankle boots, jackets, and other fall or winter styles, but done with summer’s light touch and colors, and you’re all set to look fabulous in dark colored florals for fall 2017.
