Dark Floral Trend for Fall
With all the travel over the past few weeks between L.A. and Maine, it’s nice to be back home and enjoy the change of the Seasons. As the weather see-saws between 70’s and 50’s, I’m still reluctant to fully rotate my wardrobe (which just means putting away light jeans and bringing back more dark ones + sweaters) — so I’m having a lot of fun playing around with some of Fall’s trends instead, one of them being dark florals.
I love the idea of carrying florals into Fall and Winter via darker colors/combinations, and adding more solemn silhouettes – with more volume, stronger lines and length. Florals are typically seen as very feminine and soft – so when inverted in color, they nicely balance edgy with pretty.
As we were away in Maine this year on our Annual “Lobster Pilgrimage” as we call it (essentially, a trip focused on eating Lobster and relaxing in the Fall scenery), I thought it would be a great time to get some family photos taken & feature one of my favorite dresses of all time – a Yumi Kim Dark Floral Maxi.
I styled it with simple accessories and leather layer – please see below + some bonus shots of smiling Charlie 🙂
It’s easy to create this look for Fall – and it transitions well as you can swap out the flats for booties and add a warmer sweater or coat.
The exact ingredients of this look are:
- The Dark Floral Maxi Dress. This one is from Anthropologie from a few years back – and is floor-length. I purposefully didn’t get it tailored as I love how it sweeps across as I walk — and can pair well with heels and flats.
- A Pair of Ballet Flats in a Dusty Rose. I’ve been wearing these Josefina’s flats on repeat – and they add contrast to the dark florals for a touch of feminine chic.
- A Brown Leather Jacket. This one is by LaMarque and is another piece I’ve been wearing on repeat as it goes well with jeans, leggings and sweaters + dresses. I tagged a few similar ones below.
- An adorable child to lift your mood 🙂 Sorry, this one is not for sale, and sorry, nothing similar was found 😉
I hope this inspires you to try the dark floral trend in your wardrobe for Fall! Please feel free to share the outfits you create via Instagram, using hashtag #ModnitsaOutfit in your posts, and I’ll be sure repost them on my stories!
