Wish List: Dark Florals

Wednesday, 16 October 2013

Dark florals is one of the trends that has really caught my eye for A/W 2013 so I thought I would give you guys my idea of a few pieces that can inject a splash of the trend into your wardrobe. I think they add a great "grungey" vibe to any outfit (depending on how you dress them I suppose) and look particularly good with leather and velvet textures. There is pretty much unlimited ways of wearing them, due to the versatility and the dark colour pallet that allows you to add your own touch. (Clicking on the website/shop name will take you to the item)

Vintage Style Dress - Meemee.com

This dress would be great for any party and the teaming of leather with mesh creates an edgy twist to the otherwise vintage style. Adding a killer pair of heels, flatforms or wedges (which unfortunately I have not been blessed with the ability to wear without falling over) would look amazing on a night out. 

Floral Print Sweat - Miss Selfridge
This sweat is a piece I have actually bought for myself and will probably be showing in an upcoming outfit post. I love the dusky tones throughout the sweat and let me tell you now, it is the softest thing I have felt in while. If anyone is thinking of buying this I'd definitely say go for it.

Velvet Bodycon Dress - Miss Selfridge
This is another piece that would be great for a night out with the dark tones and velvet. A kimono could easily be thrown over the outfit to add a boho touch. Or a leather jacket would make it more rock'n'ready.

Tapestry Skater Skirt - New Look
This skirt would definitely add a vintage touch to an outfit and paired would black would create a statement on its own. A leather jacket, chunky boots and statement necklace could be worn to add some edge to the skirt.

Midsummer Smock - Miss Selfridge
The folky side to this dress really attracts me to it and despite never really being a massive fan of Miss Selfridge, I recently discovered they have some really nice individual pieces. This dress looks well-made and despite being quite expensive, I'm sure it would be a great investment piece.

Paisley Jaquard Tee - Topshop
The vibrancy in this sweat/top is brilliant. It has a metallic-like effect to it and seeing it in the shop it looks even nicer then it does online. It is different take on dark florals that I am loving.

Romantic Grunge - Zara
Anything sheer is great, so being sheer and having a dark floral print is heavenly. Although this may not be a huge winter warm it will be great for layering and I can imagine it with a cute collar or turtle neck underneath.

Hope you like my choices, what do you think?
