Dark florals are my go-to way of bringing a little uplifting spring mood into a gloomy fall or winter wardrobe, adding some lighter layers to otherwise heavier jackets and coats in the rotation.
Paired with richer and darker backgrounds, these moody canvases usually work great paired with boots or booties, but also pumps and sandals if worn with some socks or tights and a light denim or leather jacket. As for fabric there is also a great variety from silk, cotton and satin to velvet or even light wool.
I also love the accessibility of the trend as you can always find great options starting from everybody’s favorite go-to’s like Zara, H&M, Topshop and Asos up to designer brands. In my case the dress was found at Topshop and was upstyled with highly coveted Saint Laurent Opyum pumps and a current season favorite Miu Miu bag with socks and velvet making the look cozier and season appropriate.
Do you favor dark moody florals once the fall and winter approach? What is your favorite way to style them?
