I know fall is soon to be replaced by the holidays, with all its glitter and Christmas fashion. But I’m not yet done with fall, I still have a major crush for floral patterns x fall (and I know you do too)! So here’s how to wear floral in the fall:
Choose the right pattern
So floral in the fall is preferably a floral pattern in fall colors. That is, darker colors in floral shapes. Instead of doing baby blue and pink, think burgundy and emerald green. The patterns should also be more fairy tale-like and more Red Riding Hood than Rapunzel (if you see what I’m going for lol). More melancholic than happy bubbly life. Both Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino are experts when it comes to finding the right mood for floral in the fall, with darker and more mystique flowers. This season in specific, 70s flowers are kind of stylish, with oversized shapes and bolder colors.
Style the pattern
There are different ways one can pull of floral patterns, some more specific for the season than others. Here are three ways I like to do the floral pattern.
- Style them with fall colors. This is easy to some, but to avoid going for the black and basic jeans, pair the florals with another fall color. As discussed in this post, fall colors are keen to match with one another. So if you do a burgundy floral pattern, it’s likely to match well with the mustard yellow shoes (or whatever match your prefer).
- Fabrics. There’s a current trend with floral patterns in sheer fabrics. How much as I love this trend on its own, it gets even better when styled with heavy fabrics. Like knitted, faux leather, suede and all the fabrics that are synonymous with fall. The fragile touch of the floral pattern and sheer fabric paired with heavy fabrics is just so good!
- Mix floral with prints. I can’t stress enough how chic it is to style floral pattern with other prints. Especially stripes and fall floral in combination is genius. The geometric and simple lines of the stripes with the messier look of the florals balances each other perfectly. Other prints you can mix with is dots, zig zag or why not with optical patterns? Read more here on how to mix patterns with patterns.
What it all comes down to is to contrast the lighter feeling of either the flowers or the fabric. The way to do this is by “meeting” the floral pattern with heavy fabrics, colors or prints. When it comes to how to wear floral in the fall, it’s truly what you prefer and like. Match the floral pattern with your favorites of the season and you’ll get an updated and fun look that is you! Just go for it, really!

Ah perfect guide for florals – love especially the last look with dark lipstick – perfect 😀
Thank you love! Yes, it’s a gorgeous one! Xx
I am not really a floral person, however, once in a while I like to leave my shell and try something different. Florals in autumn&winter would be what I prefer, as I don’t really like all these bright baby pastel tones 🙂 Dark burgundy florals on velvet look absolutely gorgeous 🙂 Never thought about mixing floral with prints, I will keep that in mind maybe I end up loving the florals more 🙂 x
That’s awesome though, and a great time to embrace the fall florals. And yes to mixing floral with other patterns, it’s a really chic combo and once people try it, they usually love it! Xx
I’m the kind of person that is scared of pattern (except for stripes but it doesn’t count right?). I like floral pattern I have seen it everywhere but I feel like it’s taking too much risk for me ahaha So your tips are very welcomed! If I find a nice floral top (especially a sheer one) I will follow your tip number 2. Tip number 3 is for the rock star of pattern mixing ahah

Hahah nr 3 is definitely for a rock star of mixing patterns, but I’m sure you can go there too! Try to find a floral pattern that is in subtle colors and I’m sure you’ll feel more comfy in it! Xx
Floral is my fav print!!
It’s so gorgeous! Xx
Girllll, I swear you can read my mind when it comes to fashion! I’ve been wanting to style some floral for fall and have been trying to think of what best suits my style. I love the idea about mixing different fabrics (like shown in your last photo) and pattern mixing! Can you believe I’ve never even thought of mixing florals with another pattern! Thanks again for the inspo and endless fashion wisdom <3
Hahah, fashion connection yaayy! Just go for it love, try floral in different combinations. Both for materials and other patterns. I’m sure you’ll find one that works for you. Thank you babe, you’re a doll! Xx
I love seeing people style floral during the fall with the darker tones. It’s so pretty!
It’s so so pretty indeed, and getting the fall glow this fall is awesome when doing it in floral! Xx
I’m so bad about wearing florals in the fall. The dark patterns are always my favorite this time of year!

Great guide! I love layering dresses with Fall outerwear. Sheer blouses in autumn colors are my favourite, too!
That’s lovely, floral is great with the contrast of fall. Love it! Xx
Great post and tips dear, thanks for sharing!
Thank you love! Xx
I love these tips!! I love wearing floral tops to work, but I’ll definitely have to branch out a bit more this fall!
That’s a great first step though, keep developing it! Xx
These are all such fabulous tips, as always, my friend! D&G & Valentino are always an inspiration for me for wearing and styling florals come fall, they present it in such a fresh, yet classic way. I love the idea of combining the floral pieces with fall colors. Often times, we’ll tend to reach for black to darken the vibe, but we can create the same effect, taken up a notch with a fall color. Oh, one of my favorite pattern mixes is florals and stripes, so classic and a no fail! Thanks so m much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you’re having the best start to your week so far!
Thank you love! Valentino is just genius when it comes to presenting darker floral fashion. A combination that works so great for fall. Love it! And florals and stripes in combination is just so so chic, love love love it! Xx
I love floral all year round! Great styles! Thanks for sharing xo, sharon
Same here, it’s adorable! Xx
This is so pretty! Floral during fall is perfect! So delicate and feminine!
So true and a perfect contrast to the heavy fashion of fall! Xx
Oh yes dark florals or fall/winter florals are so dramatic and fun. And such a great round up examples here. I need to win the lotto.
They are indeed, love the drama and depth they bring! Xx
I’ve been loving the florals this season. Thanks so much for the inspirational post!
Have a nice week!
They’re adorable, thank you and same to you!! Xx
Good shout my dear! It’s not that I had put my florals to the back of my wardrobe but I hadn’t really thought of pairing my sheer chiffon floral type blouses with heavier materials. I really fancy getting a corduroy skirt to tuck some floral tops into now!
Try it! Love the contrast between the heavy and the light, it’s a really chic one! Xx
I love dark florals for autumn time! Such good tips
Right? They’re so chic, love them too! Xx
Thanks for this very inspirational post! I must say that I haven’t worn anything flowery since the beginning of this Fall… Time to change this! 🙂

So happy you like it love! And yes, definitely time to bring some florals! Xx
I really want to try florals this season but can’t seem to find the right piece! I think the colors are so important when wearing this pattern this tie of the year.

It’s so true, the colors can definitely change the tone of the flowers! Xx
I really need to start adding more floral pieces into my wardrobe. Recently got a floral embroidered crossbody bag and I can’t get enough of it, hehe. Have a lovely week! <3
That’s lovely though and your new bag is adorable, haha, love how you style it! Xx
I’ve never really thought about floral in the fall – I’m behind! Love these tips 🙂 I will be using them xx
So glad you do love, hope they’ll be useful too! Xx
It always amazes me how knowledgeable about fashion you are, hun! I don’t visit many fashion blogs, but yours is one of the few I always love to come back to, your knowledge is so great and you always share some really useful tips! x x You are right, floral prints are typically associated with spring and summer, although personally I think that they’re lovely all year round! I actually prefer darker colours anyway, so darker floral prints would be right up my alley. 🙂 I love the idea of combining different types of prints, as well! I’ve seen quite a few bloggers talk about this recently, and it always looks so fab! Thank you for sharing, lovely. xoxo
Thank you so much babe, that makes me so happy to read! You’re always so supporting and kind, thank you doll! Floral prints are genius, they’re also more neutral than the ones in popping colors, which is favorable to anyone that’s uncertain about patterns. Love love love to combine prints with one another, it really gives the outfit something extra! Xx
