Winter Blooms: How to Wear Florals for Fall

August signals the wind down of summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to pack the florals away. Blooms continue to flourish for fall as they take on a dark, moody and exotic feel this season. Grown from black-as-night backgrounds and rich, saturated, jewel-tone textiles, lush flowers in overripe hues of rusts, burnt oranges, blood reds, royal blues, fuchsias and violets lend a dose of romantic glamour. Splashed against sweeping skirts at Elie Saab, embroidered onto lovely lace at Dolce & Gabbana or appliquéd at Valentino, somber florals come to life to offer you plenty of inspiration to pick from.
