When you think about fall fashion trends florals or polka dots are definitely not he first ones to come to mind. However, this season they are probably two of the biggest trends coming down the pipe.
HOW TO MAKE FLORALS APPROPRIATE FOR FALL
The key to making florals and polka dots appropriate for fall is really in the colors, and textures you choose. Normally I wouldn’t suggest linen, but there’s something about this skirt that makes me want to get more use of it.
When opting for florals in the fall you want to make sure they are moody, and when I say moody I mean they are backed by dark colors like black, navy, purples etc.
HOW TO MIX PRINTS
Because I know y’all will ask. When you want to mix prints just remember three things.
- One print needs to be louder than the others (i.e bolder).
2. You want to keep the prints in the same color family. You’ll note that the blue of the blouse is picked up in the dots on the skirt. And the beige is also located in the flowers on the blouse. Make sense? kinda sorta?
3. Combine up to three prints, and call it quits. Once you get past three prints things can get a little too real and confusing for that matter. Had I’d been wearing a jacket I would have opted for something with a print, but since it’s still mild right now I chose to go without.

And can we talk about these sparkle socks tho?? Phewf I’m OBsessed with these socks from H&M (that come in a two pack btw). Thin like a trouser sock they effortlessly fit in my lace up pumps and not only provide a treat for the eyes they make my shoes even more comfortable (hello less rubbing and blisters). Play around with different colors and textures, or go monochrome. The world is your oyster.
