Looking for a dress to wear to a wedding, date night or cocktail party this spring? I am loving the dark moody blooms you will find on an array of prints this year. “Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.” Comment below if you know what book/movie character said that… I do like to switch it up a little bit though, while sticking with a classic theme. Enter: dark floral prints.
If you’re not all about pastels and the traditionally bright, happy prints this time of year, this look is for you (if you are looking for something in a sunny hue, this look may be for you). Spring is notorious for weddings, and this particular dress would be a perfect choice that could easily go from day to night. The black background and deep berry hues really help those lighter blooms to pop. Tell me that you wouldn’t be drawn to this dress if you saw someone wearing it at the next spring/midsummer night’s wedding? I certainly would.
I paired it with a classic emerald and diamond pendant, but you could go another direction and add a chunky statement necklace, perhaps in black or deep berry (suggestions linked below). I think it depends on how formal you want to style it. For the purse, a pastel pink clutch by Kate Spade brought the look together quite nicely.
The Spring 2018 Runways were lined with dark florals and retro inspired prints. What a nice reprieve from all the flannel this winter, am I right? Also, a perfect way for those who love to wear black to embrace a fresh spring look. These prints will also translate well to Fall with the addition of layers, tights, and jackets. There’s your excuse to invest in one or more… yay! Below are some of my picks. Cheers to love (and open bar)!
