Dark floral dresses for fall are not all that new, but this season the trend has exploded. Here’s why they are hotter than ever, and how to find one that is right for you!
Dark Floral Dresses For Fall are Cheerier
I remember a few years back when I first started writing about dark floral dresses; they were moody, dark, and sad. Pretty much everyone was black with faded muted colored flowers. Many of these dresses looked like they belonged in a funeral parlor.
This fall, things have changed dramatically, and dark floral dresses have a much cheerier look and feel. Some of them still have black backgrounds, but you’ll also find navy, green, purple, burgundy, and brick backgrounds, among others. That’s good news for mature women because black can be draining.
The color of the flowers has also evolved from muted and boring ( like gray and pale pink), to clear and bright ( like navy and yellow). The result is a more uplifting, vibrant, and youthful look.
They’re More Ladylike
Just as the colors of dark floral dresses have shifted, so have the styles. Shapeless dresses and sloppy grunge styles have been replaced with dresses that are more feminine, ladylike, and figure-flattering. There’s a dark floral dress to suit every kind of body type and style personality.
For example, you can get a wrap dress in one of these new dark florals, which is universally flattering. You’ll also find dark floral fit and flare, shift dresses, trapeze shape..you name it!
Dark Floral Dresses for Fall are Modern and Bold
Another thing that makes dark floral dresses more exciting now is that the size and types of blooms are different. We’re seeing bigger scale florals, and that is clean and simple, instead of tiny, busy, fussy florals. These give the fall floral dresses of 2019 a more modern, spirited look.
If you are going to buy on fall dress this year, make it a dark floral!
