Fall for Floral

Fall for FloralFloral patterns on dresses, flirty tops, and skirts are usually strictly spring attire, but this year you’ve got the chance to wear them year round. One of fall’s newest trends is floral, but instead of finding the prints in spring hues of pink and green, you’ll see them in neutrals, metallics, and jewel tones. This J.Crew fleur-patterned peep-toe heel ($228, J.Crew, SouthPark, 704-365-9355) is the perfect pop of color to brighten up your corporate suit staple for the office. And this belted print dress from the new Kristin Davis line, sold exclusively at Belk, is a great stand-alone piece to take you from day to night with a quick accessories change ($138, Belk, SouthPark, 704-364-4251). Want to look more laid back than buttoned up? Pair a flowy-knit floral lace wrap sweater by Line ($255, INTERMIX, SouthPark, 704-365-3064) with your favorite dark jeans for a laid-back-meets-elegant look perfect for cocktails outside on a crisp fall night.
