Summer may be over, but the floral trend that exploded last spring is still alive and kicking. Those big, bold prints we flaunted all over town are transitioning into a darker mode — white and pink florals atop a dark background. Start with a striped maxi, essentially a blank canvas just waiting to be accessorized. In this case, a breezy scarf strewn around your neck plays to your carefree palette, while a link bracelet and structured crossbody bag keep it classic. You can complete the easygoing vibe with a strappy sandal or slip-on sneaker. The fedora is a cool touch you won’t want to skip! These darker, more mature florals stand for fun and fall, and they’re cropping up on romantic dresses that can be layered with your favorite cold-weather accessories.

Dying to try the new hot spot touting the latest farm-to-table fare and wondering what to wear? Sunday Brunch Style is an art, and we caught up with some lovely ladies who have got it down pat.

A Pinch of Lovely is onto something brilliant with her effortless ensemble. Ripe with color and full of personality, she’s well suited for her fave brunch spot in NOLA—Galatoire’s Bistro. A relaxed dress in a bold hue provides a chic base for layering and weekend ease. A long tassel necklace offers contrast and leaves room for shorter, more delicate pieces to polish the look. Go for an eclectic pop with some stackable bracelets. Remember it’s brunch, so more is more—ok, maybe we’re thinking of those mimosas. Try a neutral wedge and printed tote to tie it all together… and don’t forget the sunnies!
