Fall Trend Alert! Winter Florals…Be Still My Blooming Heart

Here’s the good news…floral prints are no longer just for spring! We couldn’t have been more thrilled to see flowers popping up all over the fall ready-to-wear runway! What is more divine and simple than a winter floral frock? Notice the color palette is slightly darker than that of spring. Not to mention many of the fabrics are heavier. Who ever thought you could get away with paring floral and feathers? We lurve the look!

If you dare, pair your floral print dress with contrasting floral stockings (Chloe) (however this look wont work for work). Keep your jewelry simple as to not compete with the pattern. Try mile-high platform pumps and spice up your frock with opaques.
