They’re the It pattern of the season.
Florals? For fall? Indeed a little bit groundbreaking, especially when they match the morose mood of the season. Ahead, seven botanically beautiful pieces that let you tap into your dark side.
Dries Van Noten Long Printed Gloves
For those with a flair for the dramatic, scoop Dries Van Noten’s archivally printed opera gloves. How to wear these blooming beauties, you might ask? Sport them with another statement-making floral piece to double up on the fall foliage.
Dr. Martens 1460 Vonda Floral Leather Lace Up Boots
One way to make this iconic English combat boot even cooler? Add a trail of red-rose embroidery along the upper leather. Not just for the punk leaning among us, this pair will look equally on point with a pair of white frilly socks.
Stine Goya Delta Dress Icy Flower
The little going-out dress just got a whole lot cooler, thanks to Stine Goya’s silvery, spaghetti-strapped piece punctuated by a macro bloom. Styling it can go two ways: lean into the 90s feel with a pair of kitten heels or go full-on go-go with knee-high boots.
When you live with winter for nearly half of the year, you know that layering essentials are just that, essential. Might as well make those pertinent pieces fun. Smythe’s body-skimming turtleneck in a not-so-classic liberty print is just the ticket.
Baum und Pferdgarten Neddie Trousers
Baum und Pferdgarten’s silky, evening-ready pants are an ode to perhaps the moodiest bud of them all, the iris. A chunky knit or the matching cropped blouse are the perfect pairing, plus, they’re a sustainable option too, made from 70 per cent recycled polyester.
Etro Floral-Jacquard Hooded Jacket
If you’re ready to ditch your all-black winter coat in favour of something a little more standout, may we suggest Etro’s brooding take? The subtlety of the floral jacquard means it works just about any of your accompanying looks.
Undercover Flower Silk Brooch
We’re way into the brooch trend, especially when it means donning a true-to-life stem coloured in a usual yellow hue. Set against an all-black look (we love the idea of it pinned to the lapel of unstructured suiting) the whole thing pops in an unexpected way.
