Dark Florals Other than Black

Dark florals have a fall vibe, but when they first arrived a few years back, they were quite moody and sad looking. There were a lot of black floral dresses with dull, faded flowers, and they looked like they belonged in a funeral parlor.

Today you’ll find dark floral dresses with  dark navy, green, purple, rust or burgundy backgrounds. These new colors are more flattering on older women because black can be draining. The florals are more vibrant too. Instead of muted and dull shades like gray and pale green, they are clear and bright, like yellow, red, and pink.

Bigger, Bolder Florals

Small ditsy florals can also make a dress seem more sweet and summery ( and dowdy), so if you want a fall dark floral look, choose a dark floral in an oversize, bold print. You’ll look more artsy and chic, not old lady.

Simple, Modern Cuts

Lots of ruffles and frills can also give off a more spring-summer vibe. (Think of the floral dresses we see at Easter and Mother’s Day). The best dark floral dresses for fall are more streamlined and elegant. Look for simple classic cuts like a wrap dress, (like the one I’m wearing in this post), sheath, or shift, without a lot of detail. Let the dark floral design make a bold fall statement.
