A floral story is not exclusive to Spring – ladies like their blooms year-round and the runways were more than happy to comply with moodier versions of garden prints this season. With Summer coming to an end, it’s time to talk about Fall fashion. One of the biggest trends for Fall 2017 is to wear couch floral prints. This means instead of wearing the usual floral prints with roses or daisies, the trend is to wear vintage-inspired floral prints, ones you might see on a vintage couch or pillow.
This trend is not easy to pull off but, at the same time, can be achieved by anyone. The key is to wear a print with colors that match your skin tone and choose a print size that matches your body type. Generally, bigger prints draw attention and smaller prints camouflage. Choose accordingly to frame your favorite parts of your body. Couch florals can be worn as a statement piece or an accessory, for both casual and fancy occasions. With thousands of different vintage floral prints available, you’re bound to find one you love in no time!
I’m wearing an adorable little two-piece flower and velvet outfit from For Love and Lemon’s Fall’17 collection. Paired with my two other big Fall trends: Over-the-knee boots from Stuart Weitzman, and a French beret inspired hat from Chanel. I love wearing floral prints in Winter, not just because they’re pretty and feminine, but also because it’s a reminder that someday, in the not too distant future, Spring will be here, and with it warm weather. Pair pretty petals and pastel colors with heavy winter fabrics, or clash moody blooms with traditionally wintry prints like gingham and plaid. Either direction is equally cool, and there are dozens more ways to wear florals while the weather is cool. xoxo Charlotte
“For Fall/Winter 2017, try dark, bewitching blooms from Â Preen and Gucci, graphic posies by way of Miu Miu and Marni, or creeping buds up the pale pink palettes of Zimmermann and Rodarte.”
