Trend to Try: Dark florals

Who doesn’t love a floral print? But do you find them harder to wear in winter? Sometimes the pretty, light colours don’t work so well with black tights, or a heavy black coat. Enter Dark Florals.

A dark floral will usually have a black base to the print, and will have deeper, more intense colours in the print, like so…

Like I mentioned before, these darker florals will work better with all the black we seem to wear in Winter. The deeper colours in the print are strong enough to stand up next to black, and they won’t appear washed out as some lighter, more Spring-time floral colours can.

Here are some of the great pieces I’ve found on EziBuy that will bring a bit of floral fabulousness into your Winter wardrobe.

Fun and casual

Perfect for the weekend, make the floral the statement and compliment the print with plain colours. A simple tee will show off the fun skirt shape, and a flat ankle boot will be comfortable AND fashionable in one!

For Work

Why stick to plain black or grey for work? Add some femininity to your work look with dark florals!

Use the print to match the colour

The good thing with the dark florals is that you don’t always HAVE to wear it with black. They key to choosing another colour to wear with a print, is to use the PRINT to tell you which colours will work with it! Look for one of the more subtle colours in the print and match it with a top (or bottom, or scarf, or shoe) in that colour, like so…

And sometimes it’s just fun to wear some PRINT rather than black – this stylish blazer has already made it’s way into my shopping cart…..
