Buy Now, Wear Now and Later: Fall Florals

Buy Now, Wear Now and Later: Fall Florals

Happy almost Labor Day! There are so many sales going on right now that I needed to pop on here and remind you that there are things that you could be buying now-and wearing now and later. Let's talk about fall florals, shall we?

The thing is, you don't have to wait for fall to wear floral prints with a dark background. The image above actually comes from Lovely Pepa in the spring, and it's equally wearable right now. Here's how I'd recommend that you wear a dark floral now-and once the weather changes.

For Now

Wear fall florals now with brights and whites. Try them over jean shorts or cropped pants or with a bright top like Monsoon-anything that clearly defines the look as summer-y. Feel free to add in a bright shoe or stick with a neutral.

For Later

Bring out the dark background of a fall floral and let the pattern shine by keeping the rest of your outfit dark, too. I particularly like how the jacket and pants are both shiny here.

Looking for something more work appropriate? Look to Boden's styling for a fall work look that marries a wool skirt with a dark floral.

Feeling inspired? Check out these fall florals on sale!

Love this button down from Asos.
Really into this simple rose tank from Anthro and the floral-stripe combo at Jcrew.
These Loft pants are a bit more subtle. This Loft shirt is gorgeous!
This Free People jacket is not, nor are these Anthro pants, but they are $100 off!
