A Key Autumn Buy ~ Dark Floral Frocks

belle and bunty bloggers london style aw18 floral dresses 1

Call us creatures of habit but at this time of the year, every year, we get a real hankering for fluid frocks in lovely dark florals. Autumnal shades that make the best base for our new season accessories {yes knee high boots we are talking about you} aswell as making the best contrast against our chunky knits. As sure as your Insta feed is about to fill up with pumpkin related pics and spiced latte references, we are going to be snapping up any dreamy dark floral dresses that catch our eyes.

The great thing about a floral dress, especially in a print with a dark background, is that it offers up a multitude of styling opportunities and slots into many an occasion too. Most prints at this time of year have at least a small part of black {if not an entire black base} making pairing with your classic black accessories super easy. We love mixing in our neutral shades of tans, taupes and browns to lighten and lift what could be a slightly sombre look for those of you like us that crave a bit of colour.

{Here’s a little selection of some dark floral dresses we love, have a little scroll through!}

With these milder temperatures, wearing a midi dress and longline blazer isn’t going to bring on a cold, but as the numbers do dip to slightly colder we’ll be styling these dresses with jersey polo necks underneath and as the temperatures plummet {or perhaps just reach the numbers they should be for this time of the year!} then we will be chucking over a chunky knit: be it a long cardigan and belted at the waist or a sweater to give the illusion of a midi skirt underneath. As opposed to a short lived love of a pumpkin spiced latte we want our wardrobe to work long and hard for us and see us back through to warmer conditions.belle and bunty bloggers london style aw18 floral dresses 1
