Dark romantic floral dresses are trending for fall — shop 15 versions now

Florals, for once, are not exclusively a spring trend. This fall, dark floral shades in lush purples, greens, and pinks were spotted all over the fall 2017 runways. The trend was spotted at Balenciaga, Altuzarra, Isabel Marant, Simone Rocha, Adam Selman, and more. But perhaps the biggest indicator of the floral trend’s dominance this season was from the recent, explosive success of the H&M x Erdem collection.

In case you don’t know the designer, Erdem Moralioglu, or his signature aesthetic, he is known for his rich, vibrantly colored floral textiles, found in opulent Victorian-style lacy blouses and gowns. The collaborative collection was chockfull of these fall floral staples. It’s not surprising it sold out within a few hours.

Dark, romantic floral dresses are as versatile as they are feminine and stylish. They are great staples to wear to work — simply add a pair of black booties and a coat. You can wear one to Thanksgiving dinner by throwing on your favorite black pumps. You can even wear these dresses out on date — just add your favorite knee-high boots and a sleek moto jacket.

Ahead are 15 fall floral dresses you can wear now and well into the holiday season.
