The winter season is our favorite time of year because of the cozy layering and luxe materials and colors. Just because the cold season has arrived, it doesn’t mean you have to pack your floral prints away. Many floral dresses work well into the colder month, it’s all about utilizing the correct cocktail of color, pattern, fabric weight, and accessories. This trend is beautiful, romantic, and moody at the same time.
Dark florals are going to be your new BFF by the end of this blog post and we are going to tell you many reasons why! Let it be a dress, top, skirt, or even shoes, they will give your wardrobe a fresh botanic look that’s both feminine and bold.
Here are a few ideas to help you conquer this style:
Keep it simple. Pair your floral piece with a solid color/neutral to let the florals stand out.
Mix Them Up. If you’re more of a creative dresser, then you might be more attracted to the idea of mixing two inky florals. This is also a popular way to style the trend. Wear one floral up top and another on the bottom or find a black floral dress that combines two different florals for a more fashion forward look.
Be Bold. Make a pop by adding a clutch in one of the colors from the blouse. Or add an unexpected twist when it comes to pairing jewelry. Sculpted and architectural jewelry keeps noir florals looking strong and not wimpy.
Sculpt your Figure with Florals. First, there was color blocking to highlight your best parts and camouflage trouble areas, now designers are using florals to slim and shape. They’ve strategically placed florals in specific spots on solid, dark backgrounds to make you look slimmer. For example, a solid black dress with bright florals from the bust up is perfect for a gal with a bit of a tummy because the bright florals draw your eye up and away from the problem spot. The solid black at the tummy area visually shrinks it.
The floral dress trend has been going strong all year long and will continue to be a fashion classic. Some of your floral summer dresses can have a good second season as part of your cooler-weather wardrobe if you style them with the right accessories. Just add a little drama and excitement to appeal to your fashionable side. As your attire continues to transition into upcoming seasons, don’t feel the need to upgrade your entire collection, just be confident and bloom!
