Last week on the blog, we talked about fall transition pieces here. One of the pieces that we talked about was dark florals. The great thing about florals is that depending on the background that is set, florals can be worn in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. For the fall season, look for florals with a moody (dark) background, such as black, burgundy, navy, olive, and plum colors. The three tops that I’m wearing below all have dark backgrounds which make them perfect for pre-fall wear.
This top was a part of the spring collection from New York & Company. But because it’s black, I think that it’s a great piece to wear as we transition into fall. The top has a shimmery metallic thread which adds an understated glam accent to the very flirty off the shoulder details. I paired it with my black dress pants, black pumps, and black Michael Kors crossbody.
The next top was one of my under $20 purchases from TJ Maxx! TJ Maxx always comes through with the perfect floral pieces. This top has a tie waist that flatters your shape and a v-neckline that is the perfect mix of sultry and sweet! Some of the floral designs in this top are a pretty burgundy color (fall staple color) so I figured I would pair it with these burgundy coated jeans.
I’m totally in love with the dark floral trend so here is one more top that features dark florals for fall. Another under $20 purchase from TJ Maxx, this statement-making blouse is also great for the pre-fall season. I paired it with these very flattering Sloan pants from Banana Republic. I kept a summery vibe with my nude sandals and bag!
Florals are no longer synonymous with the summer and spring fashion. So this fall, find those floral pieces in your closet that are a little darker or purchase a couple inexpensive pieces that are versatile and can be mixed and match with multiple items. As you can see above, I chose the very easy route of mixing my floral blouses with solid colored pants. I also love dark floral dresses for fall styled with a pair of open toe booties. For autumn/fall 2017, try dark, moody florals!
