12 Floral Pieces That Are Totally, Most Definitely, Appropriate For Fall
October 9, 2013
Oh, you think because the leaves are changing color and falling to the ground that there’s no reason to wear anything floral print? That’s BS. Whoever said that you had to wear prints that matched the foliage of the current season was seriously lame. Like, really, that person was no fun at all.
How do we know? Because fall floral pieces aren’t only seasonally appropriate, but because of the cooler weather, they tone down on the bright color palette, instead using dark crimsons, navys and emeralds. That’s good for you for a lot of reasons (darker hues flatter most skin tones for instance) but one really big reason comes to mind: the darker the color, the more slimmed down you look.
And, because we know fall is the precursor season to the eat-everything-in-sight-and-be-grateful-for-it holidays, these 12 pieces will work from when you buy them now, to when you gain a bit of hibernation weight and then back through to the spring, when whoever made the old-school fashion rules would actually tell you to wear those florals.
So stock up, ladies. This print is in it for the long-haul.
