A bunch of cool fall florals

12

I like florals this time of year because they tend to be darker and therefore more sophisticated, like this cool jacket from Rixo.

OK, these jeans are kind of on the crazy side, but they’re also quite awesome.

A really lovely dress with the prettiest print.

I’ve been seeing a lot of square neck tops lately and I don’t typically like them, but this one, in mustard yellow, is pretty great.

And I feel like I showed you this fun jacket before, and maybe I did, but isn’t it good?

I love the touches of orange on this pretty tiered skirt.

Such a out-of-the-ordinary pullover puffer.

This button down isn’t as autumnal as some of the other pieces here, but it is just so cute and retroish.

Another thing I usually don’t like: high-neck blouses like this one. But I think it’s really pretty and would look great under a blazer.

Click through and zoom in on the print on this dress: it is just stupendous.

I sort of wish this quilted coat was shorter—it hits just above the knee—but I’d still maybe go for it.

    This post makes me want to wear dresses. Never thought I’d say that.

    The pull over puffer print has a decidedly “Liberty” look to it. I want it. I, too, was drawn to the floral jeans and I am the most non-floral-jeans person on the planet. Star alignment, perhaps? Should we all buy a pair, pick a bar and fix a day and time and just all show up?

    Always love a dark floral in fall/winter. Thanks, Kim! Enjoyed the podcast today, and I had to chuckle at the “boxy” comment you got on your blog. Fashion is having a bad moment overall, and it’s especially challenging for curvy ladies with shapely bodies! Thank goodness for belts or a nice French tuck.

    I enjoy your blog and podcast very much but I will not continue to read/listen if you continue to promote Tory Burch. The company has repeatedly stolen clothes and housewares from other cultures. Her latest being from Portugal. I am Portuguese/American and can assure you that cultural appropriation is real and extremely offensive. Google ” Tory Burch Cultural Appropriation” and you’ll quickly see that this is part of the company’s way of doing business.

    I wish this didn’t have the elastic at the back, but I scooped up this quilted cotton jacket (in “yellow”) at Target which I think firmly falls in the fall floral category. I also dig the dark green with Indian blockprint vibes.

    I am not a floral fan but am weirdly swooning over those crazy jeans.

      So happy to see the listing for the patterned jeans. I came across a pair of Mother denim joggers in a blue and yellow floral colorway this summer that was just as loud (or louder) than the ones Kim listed. At first glance I couldn’t believe how ugly they were but I just kept coming back to them. The floral is such a great throwback graphic and just the right size for wearing, as opposed to curtains, etc. When I tried them on the fit was great and I ended up loving them. I haven’t worked up the courage to wear them, but I think on the right day with a big black sweater and black boots to frame the craziness they will be a great antidote to dreary winter weather.

      I like them too but I think they would have looked better in full length, and not raw hemmed. Still, that is a lovely print. Doooooooo it … (unless you don’t want to … ; ) ) … … … … I also liked the RL print dress, and the Anthro embrodered shirt and the print on that last coat. I can see why florals with a dark background seem more sophisticated, yet for me at least, the opposite doesn’t have to be true. Then again, there are just lots of unacceptable prints in many categories. Not here though! I am not a white buttondown person, but that is some lovely embroidery.

      Me, either, Eloise. Unless it’s a “personality piece” like that quilted floral coat, that add a spark to my usual neutral wardrobe basics.

      Me too-! Although I had paisley cropped flares back in high school that were kind of a signature look. The colorway on those would work with half my closet. I’m so tempted. Now’s as good a time as any to start developing the ‘noted kook’ look I intend to evolve into.

        I feel like those suckers would work with just about any color – if the inseam were half an inch shorter, I’d have grabbed them already (as it is, I am still debating – they’d be full length on me). I’ve already got the “kook” part of your desired “noted kook” look down….

    Kim, could you do a post of sparkly holiday blouses and tops? I’d love that.
