Flower Power: Florals Take the Spotlight in Fall Fashions

By V Lynne Smith

One of my favorite looks for this season is the beautiful florals. But this is not the floral look of Summer. The
Fall Florals have taken on a decidedly darker tone which gives any fashionista countless ways to style the
perfect look for any occasion. This season’s florals will take you from brunch with the girls to that fabulous
cocktail party and everything in between. Take a look a few ways to create your perfect floral ensemble.

The St. John brand is known for timeless style and quality and this flower embroidered jacket is no exception.
The jacket can be paired with pants perfect for those cool fall afternoons that are still warm enough to dine al
fresco. The jacket is available from the St. John Boutique at the Somerset Collection, in Troy, MI.

The darker tones of fall florals make it an easy option for cocktail parties and after-five events. The Fall party
season is in full swing here in Metro Detroit and what better reason to buy a new dress. The Carmen Marc
Valvo floral fit & flare dress from Saks Fifth Avenue is the perfect choice for an evening out on the town.
Gianvito Rossi, velvet satin bow sandal pairs very nicely by picking up the subtle purple tones in the dress.
Both items can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue in The Somerset Collection.

Another marvelous choice for an evening out comes from our friends at Dolce Moda in Birmingham, MI. Ted
Baker is a London based brand that has become known for quality designs with a flair. The Kimey
Impressionist Bloom Bardot dress from Ted Baker is sexy, elegant and chic. This dress gives you the cold
shoulder like no other.

Now for those occasions when you’re feeling a little extra Gucci has an unbelievable over the top floral jacket
and pant that will make you the star of any show. The Gucci Floral Jacquard Two-Button Blazer and Jacquard
Flare Pants is for the woman who is not a wallflower when it comes to fashion. Pair this suit with the Gucci Isle
Jewel Sandals for a little extra sparkle. Both items can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue in The Somerset
Collection.

 

It’s no secret that I am a shoe lover! For me everything begins and ends with a great shoe. So it’s easy to see
why I would love these striking floral shoes. Donald J Pliner Barri Floral Open-Toe Bootie, Tory Burch, Clara
Floral ;Orsay Bow Pump and Christian Louboutin Disco Floral Velvet Red Sole Bootie are a few of my favorite floral shoes for this season. Each can be paired with your favorite little black dress or chic pair of jeans
depending on your mood. So make the world your runway this Fall with these irresistible florals.

St. John, Saks Fifth Avenue, & Neiman Marcus are located in the Somerset Collection, in Troy, MI.
Dolce Moda is located at 323 E Maple Rd, Birmingham, MI (248) 399-6200.
