If you’re wondering how to bring autumn florals into your wardrobe, look no further than the runways. On the Fall 2017 catwalks, feminine flowery prints turned dark and brooding, with the addition of lace and darker hues. In contrast to summertime florals, patterns for the cooler months of the year involved punchy colours and thicker fabrics. For anyone seeking flower power this autumn, try drawing your cues from Christopher Kane, Gucci and Erdem.
On the Christopher Kane runway, pale pink looked surprisingly sleek and autumnal. An oversized brocade blazer was detailed with a splashy rose print. Meanwhile, a matching skirt featured a slit up the thigh. Paired with white and black flats, this ensemble looked perfectly appropriate for the office, followed by drinks afterward.
At Gucci, rich shades of turquoise, magenta and tangerine illuminated a basic black jumpsuit. With a sharp white Peter Pan collar and matching sleeves, the one-piece ensemble was versatile and preppy. We are also liking the inclusion of a black leather handbag and strappy flats, for a schoolgirl feel which fits back to school season.
Erdem’s romantic, ladylike take on florals involved glittering embroidered flowers on a high-necked, lacy gown. The pale lilac tone, bell sleeves and long hemline completed the design. If you want to rock evening florals into the autumn months, allow this chic look to inspire your own sartorial statement.
