Fall fashion trends have always been my favorite each and every year. The weather turns cooler, and we see what fashion designers will have in store for us. But there are those trends that just seem a bit too extreme, even for a millennial mom like me. Over the next few weeks, I’ll highlight the trends that won’t make you cringe and may actually inspire you to try something new this season. The kicker: each piece will be within your budget. Here are some tips on how to wear the dark florals trend.
Stick with a Close-Knit Pattern
Dark florals can be quite beautiful on just about any woman, but we have to keep in mind that the floral pattern should flow on the piece you rock. By keeping the floral pattern neat and tight you’ll ensure that it won’t bombard the rest of your outfit. A great dark floral piece mixed with a bit of a watercolor theme would look great on almost any silhouette.
Mix Brights and Darks
Embracing the dark florals means that we’ll have the liberty to highlight a bright color in our ensembles. If your piece of fashion has some specs of tangerine, bring that out in your jewelry, bag or even your shoes.

Make it Work for Everyday
I love a trend that I can wear while running errands or spending time with the family on the weekends. Dark florals are easy to dress down; pair a top with your favorite boyfriend jeans, a coordinating cross body bag, subtle but fun accessories and the flats of your choice. I love to wear sneaker slip-ons just about any time, and they work well with this simple yet chic outfit.
